Office, business complex planned for Myhre Road plot

If all goes as planned, the clearing of the property that lies on the corner of Myhre Road and Ridgetop Boulevard will result in new commercial buildings for the growing area.

“We’re planning two 36,000-square-foot office buildings, three stories each with undercover parking,” said Rich Rucker, base development partner with Joanne and Chuck Haselwood, who recently bought the land.

The Haselwoods, who operate Highland Business Park, LLC, purchased the property this past summer, according to Rucker. The two parcels were owned separately by longtime-area residents Margaret Brooks and Arthur Alstad. Rucker did not disclose the purchase price of the two properties.

At eight-and-a-half acres the property extends parallel along Myhre Road between Ridgetop Boulevard and Bucklin Hill Road.

For now the buildings are a vision as the building permits are currently being processed through the county.

“We won’t know for sure for another couple of months,” Rucker said. “We’re fairly sure we’re going to build both, but not 100 percent sure.”

If all goes as planned, the two identical large office buildings would be side-by-side with an outdoor courtyard in the middle.

With a total of five buildings pads on the site there already are preliminary plans for the remaining sites.

The plan for one site is a restaurant, although there is no one in mind yet, and a combination of possibly a retail business and a bank for one building pad and for the other maybe an office and retail business.

The next steps in preparation of the possible buildings will be grading the land and filling it in to balance it out, Rucker said.

Beginnng in October, sewer and drainage lines will be installed.

“Later on we’ll be paving it,” he said. “The site will be completed March or April whether or not we have buildings. In a month-and-a-half we will be able to guarantee that the two office buildings will be started.”
