To some it seems as if the recession will never end, but in King George, the future is bright. Take a look at all the building going up in King George, and you can share the feelings of hope and prosperity those brave enough to build in these times are feeling. Pictures taken by The Journal photographer on Monday are testimony to the fact that many developers think King George is the place to put their money and their talents.
New construction includes a house on Route 205 between 301 and 3; the Q Stop which is becoming a 7-11 at routes 301 and 205; the King George Sheriff’s office in the new government center next to the YMCA; the new CVS pharmacy planned at the corner of Route 3 and 301; the new dialysis center on Route 610, just north of Route 3; the new dental office on Route 3 across from the Journal offices, the new Two Rivers Baptist Church on Route 3 near Lambs Creek Church Road; the new Peoples Community Bank on Route 301 east of Route 206; Jacks Sub just across from Peoples Community Bank; and construction which has just gotten underway for the new Walmart and the new University of Mary Washington campus.
Other building plans are on the drawing board for King George, which will only add to the excitement many feel for the manner in which the county is developing. As plans finalize, The Journal will keep readers up-to-date on building plans. You can also check out photos of the building efforts on The Journal’s website, www.journalpress.com.
