Surrounding the waterfront property at 110 Compromise Street, signs read, “No Docking”, “Sidewalk Closed”, and “Danger! Peligro! Construction Area”; But what these signs are actually revealing to this Annapolis community is that new life is being breathed into this long unoccupied building. Formerly home to Fawcett Boat Supplies, the building has remained vacant since their move many years ago, and has been the subject of much debate by the city and developers as to just what to do with it. Last spring the property was purchased by 110 Compromise Operator, LLC with the vision of creating a mixed-use facility that would include maritime tenants and a restaurant with waterfront and rooftop seating.
The Owner, working closely with Hammond Wilson Architects and Waverly Construction, has spent many months evaluating, planning, designing and pricing options to renovate this 11,158 sf property and construction is now underway. Plans for this space include adding a rooftop structure, dining deck and raising the ground floor to mitigate the potentials of flooding. All of this means a substantial upgrade to the structure to support the added loads. Waverly has begun the first phase of construction with layout, demolition and new helical pier foundation. Once the piers are complete, concrete works and structural steel work can begin.
We are very excited to be working with this very talented team in improving the waterfront of Annapolis City Dock; making it a place that people will want to go, whether by car, foot or by boat!
