YMCA considers old Shank farm
YMCA officials looking for property on which to construct a second building are interested in the old Shank farm across from the Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home on North Eastern Boulevard, officials said Monday.
YMCA officials are looking at several sites, but haven't made a final decision, said Jim Pierne, YMCA board president.
Real estate agent Richard Hopkins said YMCA officials are interested, but the group doesn't have an option on the land.
Hopkins, with Coldwell Banker Hopkins Real Estate, said he represents the land owners, who are several family members of the late Nevin M. Shank Sr.
The Mid-Atlantic Realty Trust, a Baltimore development firm, has a contract to buy 165 of the 174.80 acres, Hopkins said. That organization has been in touch with YMCA officials, he said.
