The Locust Grove city council approved this week an applicantâ€™s request for a conditional use permit to build a new bank and single-story medical office building at the intersection of Georgia 42 and Marketplace Blvd. The conditional use permit was required to allow for the bank to include a drive-thru in the O-I (office institutional) zoning district.
The 2.83 +/- acre property is located at the southwest corner of the intersection. The applicant, Atlanta South Commercial Properties, intends to construct a 2,000-3,000 square foot bank building and approximately 15,000 sq ft single-story medical office building on the property.
The new medical building will join several others either available for leasing now or on the horizon in Locust Grove. Healthcare services are a major industry for employment both within the city and Henry County as a whole.
As it relates to the subject propertyâ€™s location, readers may ask if there are plans to improve the intersection between Georgia 42 and Marketplace Blvd. The city has been collaborating with the Georgia Department of Transportation to install a new traffic signal at the location.
