Construction crews are set to demolish the Towson WashMobile building and will begin work on a new Patient First health clinic by May, Councilman David Marks announced.

Marks, who represents the 5th District including Towson, said the business has obtained all of its permits for the location just outside the Carver Center for the Arts and Technology, and construction could be complete in six months.

"This not only brings a new medical clinic to the immediate Towson area, but it continues to clean up the York Road corridor in northern Towson," Marks said in a statement. "Other recent improvements in this part of the York Road corridor include the new Carver High School and Towson City Center."

Last May, the developers obtained two easements from Baltimore County Public Schools to allow access to the building site.

The developer will pay for improvements that widen the entrance to Carver off York Road to create access to Patient First from the south, and paid the Board of Education $22,250 for a separate easement to provide access from the north along Gerard Avenue.

Patient First provides immediate medical care at 45 sites across the region, including facilities in Lutherville, Perry Hall, Owings Mills, and White Marsh.
