Growth on Ohio 122 corridor delayed again

Warren County commissioners this morning again delayed approval of a plan for a 26,000 square foot medical office building on Ohio 122, east of Interstate 75 in Warren County.

The offices would be across Ohio 122 from Atrium Medical Center in a stretch of other development along Union Road and Ohio 122 east of the to the I-75 interchange.

Ultimately the owners of about 17.7 acres, across from Atrium Medical Center, want to build more than 50,000 square feet of medical offices in this section east of I-75 along the Middletown-Franklin Twp. border in Warren County.

Last week, the commissioners gave staff a week to work out language permitting Middletown Cardiovascular Associates would be located between Bishop Fenwick High School and the Renaissance residential development in Middletown, west of the town of Hunter.

However this morning the commissioners delayed their decision “one more week for you guys to get it together,” Commissioner Tom Grossmann said.

Fishbaugh & Sons Construction, representing Middletown Cardiovascular, continues to negotiate with the other property owner, Dr. Syed Najeed, over access to Ohio 122.

The Middletown Cardiovascular practice plans to move here from its main office in leased space in the former Hilltop OB-GYN office building, on McKnight Drive in the section of Middletown west of I-75 in Butler County.

The new offices would locate the medical practice in this fast-growing corridor in the part of Middletown in Warren County.
