Two medical buildings are planned by doctor
A doctor is planning to put up two medical office buildings, totaling 55,000 square feet, on Howell Road.
Dr. Jamal Ali of Makia LLC is listed as the developer.
The Hagerstown Planning Commission on Wednesday voted 5-0 to approve a site plan for the project, which would be built in two phases next to the Hagerstown Heart office.
There would be 229 parking spaces, 15 more than are required, according to a Planning Department memo.
Planning Director Kathleen Maher said after the meeting that the developer would contribute to the cost of constructing Paul Smith Boulevard, which would run from Howell Road to Dual Highway, crossing Edgewood Drive.
The developer would be part of a special assessment district to help pay for the new boulevard and improvements to the intersection of Edgewood Drive and Dual Highway, Maher said.
