Planning began on the Lake Anna Resort (LAR), slated for the area of the Route 208 Bridge across from the Lake Anna Plaza, in 2014 and a final site plan was approved in 2017. However, the property was sold to a new owner but no construction has yet begun.
LACA began work in 2015 with concerns about water and sewer plans, shoreline structures, open space, water runoff and boat docks. Plans were modified and went thru several iterations before the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors approved a Site Plan in 2017. The most significant change was the determination that condominiums were inconsistent with current zoning and the developer had to switch to a hotel, the current configuration.
The plan now calls for a 99-room “high-end” hotel (in 3 buildings), 10,500 sq.ft. of commercial space for a 90-seat restaurant and shops, a satellite restaurant of 90 seats, all in a “resort”-style setting. The plan also includes 205 parking spaces, a 25,000 sq.ft. “boatel” and two boat launch ramps. Beaches, docks and boathouses were not specified in this plan, though they could be added later for approval by Louisa County and Dominion Energy.
