Renovations are underway at 1300 Princess Anne St. by its new owner.

The property was purchased bu Jarrell Properties under the name JFH-Fredericksburg I LLC for $1.125 million in March from 1300 Princess Anne Street LLC, a company of local developer Tommy Mitchell.

Known as the Simpson Building, 1300 Princess Anne St. was built in the 1980s and was the longtime home of Sodexo in the region until 2015. It was also previously a real estate office.

According to James Jarrell IV, director of land acquisitions and sale of properties, STA Title & Escrow will occupy most the building, which was purchased as an investment.
