The Architectural Review Board (ARB) unanimously approved the exterior design plans for redevelopment of 1010 Caroline St., the former Tim’s Mart, in downtown Fredericksburg.
The 26,000-square-foot mixed use development will include Class A office, restaurant, and retail space, said Sean Haynes, president and owner of Fredericksburg-based Rappahannock Development Group (RDG).
Haynes hopes to have the project completed in November 2017. It will be exclusively represented by Scully.
The structure at 1010 Caroline St. was originally two buildings, built about 1930 for the Spotless Company department store, Haynes said.
The two buildings were combined and renovated in 1955, to become the Leggett department store, which moved to what is now Spotsylvania Towne Centre and later became Belk. Tim and Margaret Park opened their clothing and wig shop Tim’s Mart there in 1985.
“The new design pays homage to the historical mid-century modern design and feel of the building, while providing improved usage and function for new tenant businesses,” Haynes said.
The project is supported by Commonwealth Architects and Lifecycle Construction Services.
