Final Phase of Cambridge Marketplace Revamp Begins

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Two years after breaking ground, more changes are coming to Cambridge Marketplace in Dorchester County. The developer, Charlie Fairchild, says they're now in the final phase of revamping the area located off Route 50.

On Wednesday morning, it all came crashing down. The roof of the old Kmart building, in the form of crumbled concrete and debris, fell at the feet of excavators. The frenzy continued with beams pulled apart as workers back on the ground moved in to clean up the mess.

Fairchild says about three weeks remain before what's left of the old building will be cleared. He adds the old social services building next door will be stripped away, making room for a new medical center and an office space.

"We're going to deliver the project as scheduled," Fairchild said. "It's the beginning of the completion of the final phase, so it's exciting."

The excavators will tear down over 120,000 square feet of concrete, producing at least 25-tons of material. It's just another day for contractor Matthew Cole of Cole Ventures Inc., who says soon it will all be hauled off and recycled.

"It's common place stuff," Cole said. "Pretty much 80 to 85 percent of the building is being recycled."

Fairchild says a Wendy's restaurant and a Goodwill store are also in the works. Fairchild says the land will be turned over to some of the new tenants by this Summer.
