Outlook: Construction on the HOV/HOT lanes project will probably start later this year. Proposals to create a new off-ramp from the Virginia Welcome Center into Celebrate Virginia South, as well as one to add a connection into Southpoint II from the southbound Massaponax exit, remain up in the air.

--Bill Freehling

KALAHARI RESORT

The story so far: Wisconsin-based Kalahari Resorts, amid much fanfare, announced plans in November 2007 for a massive, $260 million waterpark-focused resort and conference center in Fredericksburg's Celebrate Virginia South. Soon thereafter the global recession started, and the project has been unable to get off the ground.

Outlook: Whether the project will ever happen is now in question. Kalahari's owner has said the project is shelved until capital markets allow affordable financing for large projects such as this.

--Bill Freehling

KING GEORGE GATEWAY

The story so far: A 155,000-square-foot Walmart opened in King George Gateway off U.S. 301 on Aug. 17, 2011, and the University of Mary Washington's Dahlgren Center for Education and Research opened in January. The shopping center also has an Auto Zone, Community Bank of Tri-County, Five Guys, GameStop, Virginia ABC store and Verizon Wireless.

Outlook: Hair Cuttery has signed a lease for space in the first phase of the shopping center, but no date has been set for its opening.

Phase I of the shopping center still has 2,200 square feet of space left in one building and 2,800 square feet in another. That space can be divided into 1,600-square-foot and 1,200-square-foot stores. There also are three pad sites available.

Construction on Phase II of the center is expected to begin next year. It will have about 65,000 square feet of retail space.

KING GEORGE GREENHOUSE

The story so far: An affiliate of GE Energy Financial Services started trying to sell a 42-acre greenhouse near the Birchwood power plant in King George County in 2007, not long after an operation growing hydroponic tomatoes shut down there.
