1111 Light Street Demolition Begins

Demolition of the former Epstein's Department Store on Light Street is progressing rapidly to make way for construction of the $30 million 1111 Light Street mixed use project. It was determined early in 2010 that the buildings occupying 1105-1117 Light Street and all of Weber Street had to be replaced because of major defects in existing structures. Much of the work was done brick by brick to avoid damage to adjacent buildings. The last portions of the facades along Light St. came down on Feb. 12 (see photo).

The new project will feature 6,000 square feet of retail space on Light Street and 22,000 square feet of office space on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors, which will allow for many business development opportunities for Federal Hill. In addition to retail and office space, the complex will contain 93 luxury apartments. A parking garage, a roof deck offering views of the harbor and city, and a courtyard are just a few of the perks 1111 Light Street will have to offer.

As all parts of the project come together, there is a goal of 13 months for completion. Watch for marketing-related updates on the project’s web site.
