CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Construction is expected to begin this fall on a 30,000-square-foot office building along North George Street that has been planned for high-tech business.
Peter Chakmakian of First Charles Town Group Inc. initially proposed the project in April 2005.
The building will be constructed on what is known as the Viener property, the spot of a former salvage yard, Chakmakian has said.
The site is in a roughly 100-acre area that includes old commercial areas that the towns of Charles Town and Ranson, W.Va., were considering redeveloping.
At one time, officials said they believed the area is ideal to develop projects like office space, a retail and movie complex, housing and recreation areas.
