4 THE VALLEY FEBRUARY 7-13, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY A new much larger medical building will soon replace this smaller one on DIAMOND HILL ROAD near Route 295 after the Planning Board approved a preliminary plan for it. CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Planning Board has approved a preliminary plan for a new two-story medical building at 2295 and 2311 Diamond Hill Road, next to Route 295 and a pair of coming new roundabouts. The preliminary plan comes after the more conceptual master plan stage, approved for this project last fall, and before final plan approval. Planning and Community Development Director Jonathan Stevens said all board members were in favor of the proposal at the Jan. 30 meeting. "Everybody loves the project," he said of the plan for a new building that: • Services community medical needs; • Improves the look of the inter- section; • And improves drainage in the area, hopefully helping to mitigate flooding that routinely plagues the area of Industrial Highway. The landscaping for the project is beautiful, said Stevens. J.A.K. Realty, owned by Pauline Khabbaz and husband, Dr. Bassam Khabbaz, will feature a new two- story, 8,400-square-foot addition to the existing medical building, with 4,200 square feet on each floor. The building will offer a total of eight office units suitable for physicians, imaging and lab services. The building at 2295 Diamond Hill Road currently houses medi- cal offices, including the Family Internal Medicine practice of Dr. Bassam Khabbaz and Healy Physical Therapy. That property, with an existing one-story structure covering about 3,100 square feet, is valued at $628,000 in the town's tax database. The taxes are expected to go up significantly with the addi- tion. The Khabbaz family told The Breeze last year that the project is designed to improve the existing medical practices and offer compli- mentary health services to the com- munity, with convenient access and parking. The company has grown a lot from what it was 13 years ago, according to Dr. Khabbaz, who is calling this a prime location for the future of the medical facility. According to Stevens, benefits of the project include a reduction of one entrance point onto Diamond Hill Road and new definition for a corner that's lacked it, including trees that will grow tall over time.
