LOCAL BUSINESS BRIEFS: Lansdowne Road site will get new business
Lucky Line Auto Parts plans to operate an auto-recycling business at 400 Lansdowne Road in Fredericksburg.
The business will be operated in an 83,000-square-foot industrial building that was formerly home to Huttig Building Products.
An LLC composed of local real-estate investors Rich McDaniel, Neil Sullivan and Rob Caine that has owned the building since late 2011 is under contract to sell the property to Lucky Line, McDaniel said.
Lucky Line needs a special-use permit to operate the facility. A public hearing is scheduled on the matter in front of the Fredericksburg Planning Commission on Oct. 9.
CVS, Burger King planned at Cowan
A CVS store and pharmacy and Burger King restaurant are planned at the Silver Cos.’ Cowan Crossings development in Fredericksburg. The 13,000-square-foot CVS would be directly at the southwest corner of the intersection of U.S. 1 and Cowan Boulevard. CVS also has a store just up U.S. 1 near Mary Washington Hospital.
The Burger King would be just south of the CVS and north of a new First Citizens Bank branch.
Both the CVS and Burger King need special-use permits from the city to proceed. Public hearings are scheduled Oct. 9 in front of the Fredericksburg Planning Commission, though the matter could get pushed back to the commission’s Nov. 13 meeting.
