Took a drive to check out the Buildings Rising Around Ocean City MD…
Alright, not all of them are rising, one is kind of at a standstill, another is getting demolished, but lots more are going up then coming down…
Buildings Rising Around Ocean City MD
We started our ride at the new Hyatt Place located at One 16th St, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map], located at the corner of 16th St & Atlantic Ave (Boardwalk) at the old Sea Scape Motel. Scheduled opening is for Spring 2018, 105 rooms, 1500+ sq ft of conference space with retail stores on the boardwalk level.
Next as we drove up Baltimore Ave is the new DoubleTree by Hilton Ocean City Oceanfront located at 3301 Atlantic Ave, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map]. Opening in the Summer of 2018 and located directly on Ocean City, MD’s pristine coastline, this oceanfront hotel is presently undergoing expansive renovations that include all guest rooms and suites, as well as all public guest areas. There will also be two breathtaking and spacious penthouse units with… Learn More!
Swinging out onto Coastal Hwy and heading north we come to the new Denny’s Restaurant (formerly JR’s The Place For Ribs) located at 6104 Coastal Hwy, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map], coming off the Ocean City Expressway (Rte 90) you’ll see it directly ahead.

Now, coming south on Coastal Hwy our first new building is the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson located at 12303 Coastal Highway, Ocean City MD 21842 [Map], with 74 guest rooms and suites providing comforts of home like a refrigerator, microwave and free Wi-Fi… Learn More!
Next in the 123rd St Shopping Center Sinepuxent Square (and per the Peck Miller website to be renamed the 123rd St Uptown Center) we have a few changes happening, this center purchased by Peck Miller Realtor, we have a stand alone coffeehouse being built and an additional building that will hold retail space and apartments on the 2nd floor…
Also, in the 123rd St Shopping Center we will be looking for a new business to take over the old Parched Pelican, a very cool restaurant that I’m sorry to see go, but we still have their other two locations Dead Freddies & de Lazy Lizard.
On down to the 94th St Shopping Center where Roses & Acme are located, and in between is the “Mall” that has been sitting empty for years and years. At this time I have not obtained any more details then that there is ‘some’ demolition going on, so as I learn more I’ll let you know…
Just a little further down Coastal Hwy is the new K-Coast Surf Shop North building, located at 7805 Coastal Hwy Ocean City MD 21842 [Map]. “K-Coast Surf Shop is dedicated to supporting everyone who enjoys the surf culture and all of the experiences that make it so unique.”
Formerly located at 104 66th St, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map] has been leveled to make way for a Town of Ocean City MD building. Meeting and events are now being held at the American Legion Hall at 2308 Philadelphia Ave, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map]
|At the Rte 90 bridge is the Residence Inn by Marriott, located at 300 Seabay Ln, Ocean City, MD 21842 [Map], which has been under construction for a number of years now, and there are still delays…|
45th St Shopping Center
45th St Bayside Ocean City MD 21842 [Map] – The strip of stores, including the Sunsations, has been razed, now just watching to see when the building will begin…
|The Median Strip Fencing Project (See More Pix Click Here!) is still underway, the median is torn up along Coastal Hwy from the Rte 90 bridge south past Seacrets Jamaica USA.|
Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott
|Finally, last on our Buildings Rising Around Ocean City MD is the new Cambria Resort & Conference Center, located at N 1st St and St Louis Ave, at the site of the old Cropper’s Cement Plant, across the street from de Lazy Lizard Restaurant and catty corner from the new Ocean City Beach Ball Water Tower. Coming across the Rte 50 bridge into Ocean City you will see it rising on the north side of the bridge…|
Hope you enjoyed our little tour of Buildings Rising Around Ocean City MD, lots of changes, and surely lots more to come. With the Census Reporter estimate of 9.6 million people in just the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, add another 6 million plus when you include the Philadelphia area. And, with the population in Ocean City stagnant at less than 8,000, room for all the summer employees is much needed as well.
We’ll continue to watch the changes around OC and will do our best to keep you up to date…
