Schools' old pianos for sale at discount

Jason's Music Center will hold a piano liquidation Friday, Saturday and May 20 at 2209 Commerce Drive in the Forest Hill Airpark as part of its partnership with Harford County Public Schools.

The partnership provides pianos free of charge for one school year to support the music education program. Jason's delivers and services the instruments at no cost, and at the end of the year the company exchanges the used pianos for new ones.

The schools' slightly used pianos are then sold at liquidation.

Pianos will be available for 30 percent to 40 percent below the list price. Appointments may be made to preview the selection Friday and Saturday. Any remaining pianos will be sold to the public from noon to 4 p.m. May 20.

Office-retail project slated in Forest Hill

Harford County developer STL Cos. LLC announces the planned construction of Newport Centre, a 30,000-plus- square-foot office, retail and medical facility to be located on the south side of Newport Drive in the Forest Hill business district.

The project was presented May 3 to the Harford County Development Advisory Committee, which is reviewing the site plan and building details provided by Sean T. Langford, president of STL.

Langford said the complex will be a miniature office park with a large free-standing clock tower, park-like areas, and brick and stone architectural details.

Newport Centre will feature two 15,000-plus-square-foot buildings, each offering a mix of first-floor, exterior-door office suites and interior office spaces. The developer will build to suit, with construction scheduled to begin late this summer.

STL Cos. built Newport Station, a 9,200-square-foot medical building across Newport Drive from the planned center.

The developer is also planning a five-story, mixed-use office/retail building on the site of the former Peppi's store in downtown Bel Air.
