The newly designed and constructed Cambria Hotel sitting on the site of the former Cropper concrete plant, just north of the Route 50 bridge is open to visitors. Eight stories high, this iconic hotel project will continue to be known for forever changing the skyline of Ocean City, Maryland. With private balconies overlooking the bay, the Cambria Hotel offers luxuries including an indoor heated pool and spa, seasonal outdoor pool with cabanas, a future tiki bar, outdoor fire pits, fitness center, meeting space and business center and a future rooftop restaurant and bar with a view of Assateague Island, Isle of Wight Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The visual impact on Ocean City’s downtown had been a highly debated topic of discussion from the beginning of the project. The Ocean City Planning and Zoning Commission ended up approving a new site plan that reconfigured its alignment to reduce the impact on the downtown view and neighboring properties and significantly minimized the square footage of lot coverage. Cambria Hotel Ocean City – Bayfront was recently awarded the “New Construction Award” by the Ocean City Development Corporation. This marks the fourth OCDC award for Fisher Architecture.
