The long defunct restaurant once known as Tia's on Excalibur Road in Bowie won't be standing much longer if developers are able get their building permits approved by the county.
Called an eyesore by many residents, Tia's has long been vacant. Current owners Frederick Road Realty hope to build a two story medical office building on the property, a plan that was endorsed by the Bowie City Council in October.
According to the plan submitted by developers the current building would be demolished and the new building would be built on the same footprint.
The Detailed Site Plan was approved by the Prince George's County Planning Board in November, and the developers are currently working to get their building permits approved by the county, according to the city of Bowie's planning director, Joe Meinert.
Once the permits are approved by the county, they will need to be approved by the city, Meinert said.
