BLYTHEWOOD (Dec. 24, 2015) – The Board of Architectural Review (BAR) gave conditional approval for a certificate of occupancy (COP) Monday evening for construction of a 6,500-square-foot medical building on Blythewood Road across from Companion Animal Hospital.

The approval is conditional on plans for lighting, landscape and signage being presented and approved at the BAR’s Jan. 19 meeting.

The building is being constructed by Cohn Construction Services for pediatrician Dr. Frank Dorn and optometrist Jim Eddis, who will be the only two occupants.

Matt Davis, architectural consultant to the project and to the Town, said he expects construction to begin as soon as the owners receive the final approval for a COP.

“The building looks fine,” Town Planning Consultant Michael Criss told the Board. “It meets codes and there appears to be no need for any variances.”

“I would expect construction should be completed by the end of the summer,” Davis told The Voice.
