Bottling Plant development underway at former Coca-Cola plant on North Market

After years of wading through bureaucratic intricacies that included a zone change, historic preservation discussions, and permitting and plan approvals, construction of a mixed-use development is finally underway at the former Coca-Cola bottling plant in Frederick.

Dirt began moving in December on The Bottling Plant, once known as Catoctin Overlook, at 1705 N. Market St.

Developers with Washington, D.C.-based Brick Lane are completing the work. Devon Lauer, vice president of development for Brick Lane, said that crews began construction work in December and that completion is slated for November or December of this year.
