The owner of the former Victor Products building wants to convert part of the building to apartments.
Owner Jeffrey N. Crampton told Hagerstown's mayor and City Council on Tuesday that he wants to lease 12 one-bedroom apartments in the building at 901 Pope Ave.
Crampton asked city officials during Tuesday night's regular session to allow residential zoning in the building, which now is zoned for office space.
Crampton renovated the building for offices in 1990. He said he had some initial success renting office space, but that interest has waned.
