Fisher Architecture Announced Progress on Cambria Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland
Posted on - February 2, 2017
SALISBURY, MD – February 2, 2017 – Fisher Architecture LLC, a locally owned, experienced architectural firm providing functional design and construction solutions to clients, announced site plans have been approved for Cambria Hotel at Cropper’s Landing on the site of the former Cropper concrete plant just north of the Route 50 Bridge.
Ocean City Planning and Zoning Commission approved the site plan for the reconfigured hotel and restaurant complex that moved the complex from a north-south alignment to the center of the property. The move expanded the number of rooms to 131 and reduced impacts on neighboring properties. The new plan includes setbacks from North Division and 1st Streets and from neighboring residential areas along St. Louis Avenue.
“This is going to be an iconic change for downtown Ocean City,” said Tauhid Islam, managing partner, Ocean One Hospitality. “Every time I cross the bridge, there isn’t much to look at. This will be something that will showcase what OC should be.”
The visual impact on Ocean City’s downtown has been a highly debated topic of discussion from the beginning of the project. The new site plan has not only reconfigured its alignment to reduce the impact on the downtown view but has also significantly minimized the square footage of lot coverage.
“This design is very coastal and highlights the local culture and flair of Ocean City,” said Keith Fisher, Fisher Architecture. “Having worked with Tauhid before, I am familiar with how he works. Our design will deliver a true “Ocean City experience” for visitors. Something that will bring them back for more.”
“Keith has been instrumental in this project and is a great architect,” added Islam. “He cares about his designs and that is why he is designing two of my hotels. He is different because his vision fits our locality. I get the goosebumps when I talk about the project. Where else will you be able to sit on an 8 story rooftop bar with a 180-degree view of the bay, have a drink and watch a perfect sunset?”
