Workers are one step closer to finishing construction of a $12 million, environmentally friendly office building at Fountainhead Plaza in Hagerstown.
Earlier this month, construction workers started to raise the side panels of the Fountainhead One Professional Offices building, a 55,000-square-foot project that is taking the spot of a demolished Martin’s supermarket at 13200 Pennsylvania Ave.
Developer Asad Ghattas said the offices should be finished by Dec. 1.
Once the panels were up, he said, “the steel people will come in and put the deck on the roof.”
Ghattas said the Martin’s supermarket moved because there wasn’t enough space at Fountainhead Plaza to install gas pumps.
He said the Fountainhead One project took advantage of Washington County’s pad-ready incentive, a program that defers some costs and offers a property tax credit for projects that renovate the site of an existing building.
The pad-ready incentive also includes projects that involve the demolition of one building to construct another in its place.
