Final plat approved in shopping center

Walmart grand opening rescheduled for August 17, 2011

The King George Gateway retail development in Dahlgren continues to proceed, with approvals granted last week for a final site plan for five retail spaces with roadside visibility from U.S. 301 (James Madison Pkwy).

Access to the site is being provided by two commercial entrances from U.S. 301. The stores will be served

by internal roads and not have separate driveway entrances from the main highway.

Jack Green, Director of Community Development, reminded the Planning Commission that it had previously approved the final plat that created the pad site and it was time to review and approve details of the residual acres.

The Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve the King George Gateway Subdivision Final Plat, which contains five lots zoned for commercial uses. One has been earmarked for a bank and another planned to contain an AutoZone store, for which a building permit has been submitted. They will be served by water and sewer provided by the King George Service Authority.

WALMART TO OPEN AUG. 17
A grand opening for the Walmart Supercenter is still scheduled for late summer, now a few days earlier than previously announced. Developer Edward A. Murphy of OMZ King George LLC and owner of Realty Development Services told The Journal last week that Aug. 17, 2011, is the new date set for the Walmart grand opening.

The anchor store of the 124-acre development will be the 152,000 square foot Walmart Supercenter. The Walmart will have a supermarket and pharmacy, along with home living and outdoor living areas. It is planned to be open 24 hours a day.

REGIONAL RETAIL PROJECT
The regional retail project’s first phase was first OK’d in August 2009 with approval for the subdivision of the property later that year.

Phase I depicts a total of 214,748 square feet of retail space including the Walmart anchor store, with an additional 81,275 square feet of retail space broken into 10 multi-tenant retail spaces.  The plan shows 1,419 parking spaces. KLNB Retail is the exclusive sales and leasing broker for the project.

Future plans for the King George Gateway development also include several components expected to maximize the site with a mix of retail, office, hotel and residential uses.

That includes plans for a 240-unit townhouse development to go in behind the retail section, which would necessitate rezoning for a 42-acre parcel.

The development is being constructed on the west side of U.S. 301 in Dahlgren, directly across the highway from the Dahlgren Technology Center, an office park that houses several government contractors. Bayberry subdivision is farther south along U.S. 301.

The University of Mary Washington’s Dahlgren Campus Center for Education & Research post-graduate facility is being constructed on the south side of the shopping center property. The 45,000 square foot campus is under construction with an opening expected in 2012.
