Blaine council approves new medical building

A new medical business specializing in diagnostic imaging and radiology is coming to Blaine.

The Blaine City Council Oct. 18 approved a conditional use permit for Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) to construct an 8,777 square-foot building at 2305 108th Lane N.E., which is within the Town Square development near Blaine City Hall.

The medical building will contain six exam rooms, equipment rooms and several offices.

Planning and Community Development Director Bryan Schafer said this building will consist of a stone veneer, stucco and glass. Its appearance will fit in with the architecture of other Town Square developments, which are all required to meet Highway 65 overlay district appearance standards.

CDI is the second largest operator of diagnostic imaging centers in the country, according to regional vice president Mark Arnold. The company has 116 centers in 25 states. There are 10 centers in the Twin Cities and 22 total in Minnesota.

Arnold, who happens to live close to the new Blaine location, said Blaine makes sense for the newest CDI office because of the growth the city has seen over the past 10 to 12 years.
