Landscaping for Eastport Yacht Club Renovation

Eastport Yacht ClubThe Eastport Yacht Club project is a gut renovation and expansion of an existing Yacht Club in Eastport (a waterfront neighborhood in Annapolis, Maryland) that is known for its racing commitment and volunteerism within the boating community. When the Eastport Yacht Club began building a permanent clubhouse in 1989, it only had 200 members. As a result, the facility that was constructed at 317 First Street in Eastport was of modest size. Since then, the Club has steadily grown to 600 voting members. Space in the upstairs bar and dining rooms was becoming more cramped by the year while the kitchen facility was not nearly large enough to handle the volume of food service required. In addition, the club has greatly expanded its mission and now hosts numerous major regattas while also offering an instructional program for youth sailors.

Eastport Yacht Club leaders first discussed a major renovation about a decade ago and took the first step toward raising the funds required to meet that goal in 2007. EYC leaders finally decided to move forward with the project and the old clubhouse was torn down in February, 2012. Construction on a sparkling new clubhouse that will be almost twice the size was initiated about a month later by Brown Contracting, and the new 8,000-square foot clubhouse, which is being built on the basic footprint of the old one, is scheduled to open this fall.

Now that the project is nearing completion, E-Landscape has been selected to install the landscaping and lawns for the finished clubhouse. Stay tuned for updates and photos on our website and Facebook page!
