Sidewalk at Roslyn building to be closed

July 02, 1998

The sidewalk in front of the Roslyn building next to Hagerstown's City Hall is expected to be closed by the end of next week as $837,000 in renovations begin, a city official said.

When the sidewalk is closed, a temporary walkway will be set up in the street along the curb in front of 15-25 E. Franklin St., said Larry Bayer with the city's Department of Community Development.

The sidewalk will be closed for at least two months.

The renovated storefronts for the city's Home Store and the new home of Spickler's Farm Market are expected to be ready by Oct. 1, Bayer said.

Spickler's will move from the west side of Roslyn's first floor to the east side next to the alley. The old Spickler's store will become a lobby to the building, containing an elevator shaft and stairwell tower, Bayer said.

The two store spaces next to the new Spickler's will house the city's Home Store, a one-stop shop to provide information to local residents about how to become homeowners.

The rest of the $837,000 renovation project is expected to be completed in March, Bayer said. That includes the lobby and replacing the cracked rear corner of the building near City Hall.

Antietam Construction Inc., of Hagerstown is the project's contractor.
