Owner wants to expand Corner Pub



By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer


The owner of the Corner Pub in downtown Hagerstown wants to expand his tavern into an adjacent building to make room for a new kitchen and additional seating, tavern-owner Darryl Sword said Monday.

To do so, Sword needs a zoning change for the property, which he also owns.

The Hagerstown Planning Commission will review Sword's request to change the zoning classification on the property at 156 S. Mulberry St. from residential to commercial.

The commission, which makes recommendations to the City Council on zoning changes, is expected to discuss the request 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 at City Hall.

Also during that meeting, the commission is expected to review a proposed 72-unit expansion of the Eastridge Townhomes off Eastern Boulevard.

Zoning changes must be approved by the City Council.

Sword said the duplex is now an apartment building.

He said it could cost about $250,000 to turn the interior of the building into an extension of the pub, which is on the corner of East Baltimore Avenue and South Mulberry Street.

If completed, the pub could serve more food, such as hamburgers and steaks, he said. Currently, the pub serves sandwiches, Sword said.

The proposed 72-unit expansion of the Eastridge Townhomes would go on roughly 13.5 acres along East Ridge Drive and between Eastern Boulevard and Tracy's Lane.

The plan was submitted by Masser Properties Inc. in Hagerstown, which is requesting a Planned Unit Development, or P.U.D., overlay for the property. A P.U.D. overlay is similar to a change in zoning and must ultimately be approved by the City Council.
