Ground has broken on the Sycamore, a 117-acre mixed-use lifestyle center set to open in Fredericksburg next year. Located along the popular Fredericksburg Wine Road 290, the project’s initial offerings will include a central green space called the Ellipse, retail shops, and the addition of a new Salt Lick BBQ restaurant, a Texas favorite restaurant chain.

The 9,000-square-foot restaurant and patio space at Salt Lick BBQ will be complemented by Salt Lick Cellars, a dedicated tasting room and shop for Salt Lick’s selection of wines and other products. The Ellipse will feature walkways under shaded canopies, creek beds, and a bandstand. Attendees of meetings at the Sycamore will enjoy modern surroundings combined with Fredericksburg’s charm.

“Groups will receive the red-carpet treatment with great Southern hospitality in a community that prides itself on its small-town atmosphere yet big-city amenities,” says Shannon Overby, national sales director of the Fredericksburg Convention and Visitor Bureau.

The project is committed to sustainability, incorporating low-impact design and eco-friendly features like rainwater harvesting to bioswales, pervious pavement, and LED downlighting. The Sycamore is poised to set a benchmark in sustainable development.
