City Downtown Manager Andrew Sargent said the demolition process on the former Holiday Motel, which began last week, is expected to take two months to complete, weather permitting.

The city plans to leave the property undeveloped after the demolition, marketing the space through its competitive negotiated sale process, Sargent said.

The white brick “historical” section of the former motel on West Washington Street will remain intact, he said.

The Hagerstown City Council in April approved the allocation of more than $72,000 for the demolition of the North Prospect Street section of the former motel. The city previously purchased the motel properties, located at 170 W. Washington St. and 12 N. Prospect St., for $27,500.
