818 Market Grocery/Restaurant
Embedding new construction in an existing setting, especially in the heart of an 1831-era historic town, requires special skills. First is sensitivity to context, the ability to envision a building that will pay homage to its surroundings. Second is bringing that aesthetic into the modern world. The new building must function efficiently and effectively for today’s consumer. KGRW applied these skills and more to development of 818 Market, a three-floor, 17,750 square-foot building on the main street of Catonsville, Maryland. When it opens in the fall of 2019, 818 Market will contain a gourmet grocery store, restaurant, bar, commercial kitchen, storage and utility areas, plus a welcoming street-front entrance and inviting off-street entrance with parking.
