Recognition Received for Island View Townhomes on 5th Street in Ocean City, MD

SALISBURY, MD – May 27, 2105 – Fisher Architecture LLC, a locally owned, experienced architectural firm providing functional design and construction solutions to clients, announced it has been awarded the New Residential Award for the Island View Townhomes project at 307 5th Street, Ocean City, Maryland.

“The design complies very nicely with our downtown design standards for so many reasons,” said Glenn Irwin, Ocean City Development Corporation. “Particularly the addition to the streetscape with front porches and hiding the parked cars in the rear of the property.”

The building was a total of six units, three stories each with a two car garage on the ground floor and a main front door entrance off Edgewater.  Each unit is a total of 1,970 square feet, 1,500 of which is livable, with the remaining being garage space.  The Fisher Architecture team designed the townhomes to be inverted, with the kitchen and living room on the third floor in order to maximize guest and owner views throughout the day.  Three bedrooms along with two bathrooms are located on the second floor.

Fisher worked closely with owners Ray Shockly and Bob Pomeranz, contractor Joe Jobson with Sekace Homes LLC and civil engineer, Parker & Associates to capitalize on the existing vacant lot and maximize the number of bedrooms while complying with all city regulations for parking,  pervious coverage, and storm water management.

“We are honored to receive this award from such a worthwhile organization,” said Keith Fisher, Fisher Architecture LLC. “It truly took a team effort to bring this project from concept to completion. The team we worked with was professional, on point and made the execution and ease of delivery a seamless process.”

This is Fisher Architecture’s third OCDC award.  In 2014 they were awarded the “Facade Project” for the Marina Deck on 306 Dorchester Street; as well as “Business Assistance Project” for DeLazy Lizard Brew Pub on 25 Philadelphia Avenue.
