HAGERSTOWN -- A multimillion dollar construction project in the first block of South Potomac Street in downtown Hagerstown should be completed by mid-June, said Irv Gish, director of special development for the Bowman Development Corp.

The construction project is situated between Duffy's on Potomac and the Schmankerl Stube Bavarian Restaurant.

Gish said the construction, which is being funded privately, was put on hold over the winter, but work recently picked back up.

The project includes the renovation of three adjacent properties - the Walker House, the Tri-State Electric building and the site of the former Double T Lounge.

Offices are being built on the first and second floors of the Walker House, and a luxury two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is under construction on the third floor, Gish said.

A liquor store and a restaurant are among the businesses that will occupy the Tri-State building, Gish said. Customers will be able to enter the businesses from a walkway on the south side of the building, he said.

The walkway also will lead to a parking garage in the rear.

An ongoing project to widen the sidewalks in front of the buildings will pave the way for outside dining, Gish said.

Depending on the weather, the sidewalk construction could be finished by the end of this month, Hagerstown City Engineer Rodney Tissue said.
