Cambridge Marketplace Ground Breaking_Victoria Wingate | Dorchester County EDA

CAMBRIDGE — Cambridge Marketplace is officially under construction as of the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, June 6.

Formerly Cambridge Plaza, the vast property is now under development by Fairchild Properties, LLC. The mixed-use plans include a Shore Health medical facility, medical offices, a dialysis center, a grocery store, two banks, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and many of the same retailers who occupy the space today.

Beginning construction will include the installation of a brand new entrance into the property.

“Thirteen million cars are going to be back and forth, and they’re going to see this entrance,” said developer Charlie Fairchild. “This is not just any entrance. It is absolutely beautiful. What it’s going to do, from Route 50 to I-95, in Maryland, all the way up an hour from here, all the way over to Ocean City, there will be no other facility, no other entrance, nothing like this. Everybody will drive by, look at it, and say ‘Wow.’”
