OCEAN CITY, Md.- A Baltimore=based developer and Ropewalk restaurant owner has plans to bring new life to an old concrete manufacturing site in Ocean City.

Owner Marc McFaul plans to build an eight-story waterfront hotel and restaurant that will greet visitors coming into Ocean City off the Route 50 bridge. McFaul's attorney, Joe Moore said the plan will create a unique bayfront experience.

"It's a large facility restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining, utilizing the waterfront and the bayfront as a focal point. We envision this as being a continuation of restaurant row." Moore said. 

Development is still in the early stages, according to Ocean City Communications Manager Jessica Waters. 

"At this point, it's very, very preliminary. We have an application with our staff requesting to rezone the property downtown; so right now our staff is reviewing the application that's been submitted and eventually it will go to the planning commission," Waters said. 

One of the challenges that will have to be address for development is the requirement for buildings higher than eight stories to have special windows and roofs. 

Moore says the concept is subject to change to meet specified requirements.

The formal presentation for the hotel restaurant concept will be presented to the Ocean City Planning Commission on June 7.
