LAKE RIDGE, Va. – Trees are coming down and a renovation of a Lake Ridge shopping center is getting underway.

Owners of the Festival at Old Bridge Shopping Center on Old Bridge Road cut down trees to make way for new ones. It’s part of an overall renovation of the property that includes tennants Gold’s Gym, Village Skis and Bikes, Brittany’s Sports Bar, and Food Lion grocery store.

“We’re in the process of cleaning up the site, which involves taking down trees, removing brush, overgrown shrubbery, etc. The site will be cleaned up and the stumps will be removed,” said spokeswoman Sheryl Simeck in an email.

Once renovations are complete, a total of 1,400 new trees will be planted in the shopping center – 720 more than officials at the Prince William County Government Center required. The trees will include crepe myrtles, red maples, Ginko trees, Ink Berry, Hypericum, Smokebush, Itea, Liriope groundcover, Old Gold Juniper and salvia.

After the renovation and planting is completed, the center will also undergo a name change to Dillingham Square. That name will match the name of street on which the shopping center already sits.
