UMW Foundation Releases Preliminary Renderings for Eagle Village Hotel

Plans are moving forward for the University of Mary Washington Foundation’s construction of a $14 million-plus select-service hotel in the second phase of the Eagle Village mixed-use development across U.S. 1 from the Fredericksburg campus of the University of Mary Washington. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012.

The five-story hotel, to be located between Giant Food and the Eagle Village Executive Offices, will feature 93 studio rooms or suites, several meeting and conference rooms for public use, and a 24-hour food and beverage service for guests. The 66,500-square-foot facility also will include an indoor pool and a fitness center. In addition, the building will house approximately 1,600 square feet of retail space, possibly a day spa, according to Jeff Rountree, CEO of the UMW Foundation and President, Eagle Property Holdings, LLC.

Construction will begin when demolition of the shopping center north of Giant is complete. The hotel is expected to open by fall 2013. Currently, the Foundation is negotiating the franchise agreement for the hotel brand, which will be announced once the agreement is finalized in early May.

ELS Language Center to Open in Eagle Village

The University of Mary Washington Foundation has announced two companies that have signed leases to operate in Eagle Village. ELS Language Centers and EverSewEnglish LLC have signed leases to conduct business in the mixed-use village adjacent to the university, according to Jeff Rountree, CEO of the University of Mary Washington Foundation and president of Eagle Property Holdings LLC.
“In the true spirit of a mixed-use development, we are pleased to welcome a global leader in language services and a specialty bag and tote company to Eagle Village. The variety of business types locating within the Village creates a dynamic and growing business center for the City of Fredericksburg and a friendly place where people can live, work, learn and shop,” said Rountree.
The UMW ELS location represents the Princeton, N.J., based company’s first center in Virginia. ELS offers international students English language learning services and university placement assistance. It is the largest group of campus-based English language instruction centers in the world, with more than 55 study locations in the U.S. and Canada and 20 international branches, including at 50 sites on university campuses.
The new ELS office will feature facilities for small classes and training sessions, computer labs that house a Learning Technology Center and business offices. They will offer services to support UMW and surrounding universities throughout the region. Construction on the 5,000 square foot ELS center offices and classrooms will begin within the next month, and classes will begin to be offered November 1.
ELS students will be able to live on campus, thereby increasing their opportunities to practice their English skills with native speakers. Additionally, all ELS Centers offer home stay accommodations with English-speaking host families.

“ELS provides added value to the university and the community at large. It will help the university recruit more international students by providing intensive instruction of English as a Second Language to international students, and it will add to the diversity of our campus and the region,” said UMW Provost Jay Harper.

EverSewEnglish, the brightly decorated specialty store located between Glass America and Best-Way Rentals, was founded in Fredericksburg in 2003. The company manufactures a variety of custom handbags, including classic totes, purses, diaper and laptop bags and backpacks.
Clients may purchase a bag from designer and owner Jennifer Church’s collection or design their own bag. EverSewEnglish offers one-on-one and group design sessions and special events, including “Tote Gatherings” and the “Tote-ally Surprised Experience.” The business held its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony last week.

Eagle Village, owned by the UMW Foundation, is a 23-acre pedestrian-friendly residential and retail mixed-use village in the former Park & Shop retail center. Phase I of construction, featuring an apartment-style residence complex, office, retail and restaurant facilities and a multi-level parking garage, was completed in July 2010.

Eagle Landing/Eagle Village Parking Information

On 10/1, the management of Eagle Landing will begin enforcing towing of vehicles parked in the lots overnight as well in cases of flagrant violations of the agreed upon parking uses.  This is applicable to every single person at UMW and is important that everyone understand and abide by the agreements in place.

For ALL UMW community members:

  • All surface parking spaces behind and next to Eagle Landing, the first two floors of the parking garage and all surface spaces in the Eagle Village retail lot are intended for retail and office clients and office staff ONLY.  These are NOT UMW parking spaces.
  • Anyone parking in the surface lots who is not a retail customer will be towed at the owner’s expense.  Additionally, all cars parked overnight in the Eagle Village development will be towed at the owner’s expense.

For students residing at Eagle Landing:

  • All Eagle Landing residents with vehicles must purchase a UMW parking decal. There are two options:
    • ELEV Parking Garage levels 3, 4 and 5 – Green Decal
    • UMW Campus Parking – Yellow Decal
  • Parking for guests of Eagle Landing residents is located on the north side of the Eagle Landing building. Residents are not permitted to park in these spaces.

What this means:

  • EL students should only be parking in the ELEV deck (3,4,5 floors) or, for those with yellow decals, in UMW parking lots on campus.
  • Eagle Village (shopping center, retail space and offices of the multi-use building) extends from the south end of the complex where the Hair Cuttery and the US Post Office are located all the way around to the Multi-Use Building and includes every portion of the lot around/between such.
  • Unless you are patronizing one of the establishments (Giant, Post Office, Hair Cuttery, etc.) you should not park in the lot.  Patronizing an establishment means you park your vehicle and go into one or more of the establishments to conduct business and then depart from the lot when your business is completed.  It does not mean, for instance, parking at Giant, running in to get a salad and then leaving your vehicle parked in the lot while you walk over to campus or go to visit friends residing at EV.
  • You can and most likely will be towed if you park at EV and then depart to campus or go to  Eagle Landing.
  • Info on Towing:
    • $65 for the initial tow fee;
    • $20/day for every day past the first 24 hours that your car is in their lot;
    • $150 fee if the vehicle is left for 3 days or more.
    • Towing is done by Patriot Towing, 540-373-2220. The lot where cars are held is an unattended lot. You will need to contact Patriot to arrange for a pick-up time. Depending on circumstances, it could be 15 minutes to 2 hours before someone will be available to meet you at the lot.
    • CASH ONLY. Credit cards and checks are not accepted for towing fees.

IMPORTANT!

  • Anyone parked on the first or second floor of the parking deck needs to move their car. The gates to the parking deck entrance will be activated on Monday, September 27 and any vehicle left inside will be ‘trapped’ if the owner does not have the appropriate gate operating device which is given only to those who are authorized to park in that garage or are a member of the staff of the Multi-Use Building.
  • Students residing at EL who have paid to park in the ELEV garage, must move their cars to the 3rd, 4th or 5th level. Towing will be done from the first and second levels.
  • Towing is done by a private company not contracted by or connected with UMW. UMW cannot intervene, stop them from towing, get your car back for you or assist in having the towing fees waived if you are towed.From the Offices of Public Safety/Parking Services and Residence Life
