Development planned just south of Stafford Hospital

A mixed-use development that could include a pharmacy and hotel is in the works across from Stafford Hospital.

A Northern Virginia-based limited liability company called Hospital Boulevard Town Center in August bought about 14 acres at the southeast corner of U.S. 1 and Hospital Center Boulevard for $2.47 million, according to Stafford property records.

Brian Ginter, a managing member of that LLC, said a CVS store with a drive-through is tentatively planned at the corner of U.S. 1 and Hospital Center Boulevard. He said additional retail, mid-density residential and a hotel are also planned.

Ginter plans to meet with Stafford planning officials Wednesday to discuss the project. He will apply soon to rezone the land from its current agricultural status.

Ginter said he has an option to buy another adjacent six acres. He hopes to work with Virginia Properties Inc., which is planning a nearby development that could include HHHunt apartments and a future campus for Germanna Community College.

The new Courthouse Road interchange off Interstate 95 will take drivers directly to the intersection of U.S. 1 and Hospital Center Boulevard, which is what attracted Ginter to the land.
