Gillis Gilkerson broke ground in September, 2014 initially demolishing 60,000 square feet of the historic Feldman’s Furniture building.  They replaced the roof and reinforced the walls of 15,000 square feet of the original structure.  The initial phase of construction included the renovation of the existing facility and the addition of stair towers, an elevator and a common space, allowing for a total of 20,000 square feet.  Morgan Stanley took over the third floor in March and Angello’s Unique Gifts moved into the storefront on the first floor in May of 2016.   

“This is an opportunity for Gillis Gilkerson to take a historic landmark that has deteriorated over time and transform it to fit into the present day revitalized core of downtown Salisbury,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “This undertaking is more than the renovation of an old run down building.  It will breathe new life into a community that is on the cusp of regeneration.”

Renovations converted the 19th century landmark into a multi-use building with an outside deck and public river walk along the Wicomico River and Mill Street.       

“It is a bedrock structure with high visibility in the heart of downtown Salisbury,” said Palmer Gillis, CEO, Gillis Gilkerson.  “The exciting part is having the opportunity to take a historic building and transform it into a structure with modern-day purpose and functionality.”

River View Commons, LLC principals, Dwight Miller, Palmer Gillis and J.B. Barnes thank the team at Becker Morgan for their architectural services during the design phase of the renovation and Brad Gillis, CCIM of SVN, for his commercial real estate expertise in leasing the building space.

“We want to express our appreciation for the completion of the apartments at Jefferson II in time to get the residents back in their homes. We believe this was made possible by the quality site supervision provided by Dale Reinhold. Dale’s masterful control of the site, the suppliers and the subcontractors was like a conductor directing an unruly orchestra. On site progress was consistent and organized. When problems were encountered, Dale professionally provided solutions. Dale’s quality site supervision made the Jefferson II project a success.”

The Severn Companies

“If it wasn’t for the help from Gillis Gilkerson, I wouldn’t be able to get out of my house. From the wheelchair ramp to the handrail, the company made it possible for me to walk outside my home. I can’t thank them enough for their time, effort and patience.”

~ Elizabeth Anderson,
Salisbury Resident
