Outlook: Late last year, Spotsylvania County resident Marcel Vyverberg and business partners bought the greenhouse. They have since been cleaning it up and hope to have space to lease growers of flowers, vegetables and more by late this year.

McKESSON PROJECT IN CAROLINE

The story so far: McKesson Corp. was building a 340,000-square-foot distribution center in the Carmel Church area. The San Francisco-based pharmaceutical and medical supply company planned to fully occupy it last November and begin operations in February or March.

Outlook: McKesson held the ribbon cutting for the distribution center on April 17.

NEW POST SOCCER FIELDS

The story so far: The Fredericksburg Area Soccer Association and the Virginia Youth Soccer Association have taken ownership of 80 acres of open land at New Post, where they plan to build 16 international-class, regulation-size soccer fields.

FASA already has secured Kellogg as its the first major sponsor. Field 11 will be named Kellogg's Field 11.

Outlook: The two organizations plan to start development for the $3.5 million to $4.5 million project this spring and have it ready for games in 2013. The fields will initially be planted in Bermuda grass, but at least one field will be converted to turf when funds are available.

Spotsylvania Sportsplex, as it will be known, also will include a 25,000-square-foot building that will house VYSA's corporate offices, and there will be a pavilion with a concession stand and bathrooms.

When completed, the Sportsplex is expected to be the largest such complex in the state. All state cup, Olympic Development Program and regional events will be held there, and it will be a potential training site for national teams.

--Cathy Jett

NEW YMCAs

The story so far: The Rappahannock Area YMCA announced last year that it plans to build a 42,000-square-foot facility, complete with an indoor pool, fitness center, gymnasium and exercise rooms, in Caroline County by this fall. It also has long wanted to build a 78,000-square-foot YMCA in North Stafford.
