Eddie’s of Roland Park

Chosen as the Construction Manager for this project, Lewis provided a “market-style approach” to the store’s interior, characterized by more open space and fresh food on display and a welcoming exterior more useful to Eddie’s customers. Built in 1940 and combined with adjacent properties over the years, the existing two-level store is approximately 20,000 GSF, with retail and food service preparation on the first floor and basement levels and storage and support spaces on the basement level.

The project included a complete phased renovation of the entire store while simultaneously keeping the store open to the public. Initial basement work phases included replacing and upgrading all electrical systems throughout the space and new stairways. Basement renovations also included upgrades to the storage spaces, food preparation clean room area, staff break room, locker rooms, staff ADA restrooms, and the installation of a new vertical reciprocating conveyor at the basement loading dock used when stocking the first floor.

Modifications of the exterior façade, including storefront replacements and an expansive, steel cantilevered canopy erected above the main entrance to protect from the weather, a shaded place for seating, cart storage, seasonal displays, and a location for outdoor events. The exterior modifications also included an entry vestibule with automatic doors leading into the store. LED lights and additional windows were added to better illuminate the interior space, and new energy-efficient refrigeration and freezer cases were added throughout the store. Full-service departments such as the deli, bakery, cheese, coffee, and gourmet-to-go areas received a complete upgrade outfitted with new equipment and modernized signage. Shoppers will also now see an expanded salad bar, a centralized wine and spirits department, and a catering service relocated to near the checkout area for customer convenience.
