Gillis Gilkerson Transforms Easton Office Building into iFrog Headquarters

SALISBURY, MARYLAND – March 18, 2021 – President Dwight Miller of Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) is proud to announce the firm’s completion of renovations for iFrog Marketing Solutions, a digital media company headquartered at 101 Bay Street in Easton, Maryland. The +/- 31,000 square foot, two-story former Coca-Cola warehouse underwent interior demolition and full-scale repurposing. As it now stands, the Bay Street building features premier, modern office space and a state-of-the-art green screen room enabling iFrog to elevate the marketing services offered to its Delmarva community.

“The green screen room was a first for us,” said Miller. “We did our research and coordinated with iFrog’s videographer to ensure it functioned the way their marketing team intended for it to. This project afforded us the opportunity to work very closely with the owners, Dave and Peggy Wilson, to comprehend and bring their vision to life. They were great partners and we are thrilled that we could deliver a new space for their business to grow.”

iFrog’s new class A suite is complete with glass walls, wire ceilings, acoustical panels, and stone accent walls. In addition to complete interior customization, the Gillis Gilkerson team replaced all of the building’s windows and installed a new roof. Window replacement was completed in accordance with the tenants’ schedules, which required weekend work to avoid business disruption.

“We are very happy with Gillis Gilkerson’s communication throughout all stages of the project,” said Dave Wilson, owner of Preston Automotive Group and iFrog Marketing Solutions. “At no point were they ever behind—they just never left because we kept adding new projects. All of the site supervisors on the job were very professional. We were operating with six other tenants in the building and they did a great job at keeping noise under control and maintained a clean jobsite.”

Originally built by the Stewart family in the early 1900’s, 101 Bay Street has a rich history largely centered around family-run businesses. Upon construction, its initial purpose was to serve as a Coca-Cola bottling and distribution facility. This remained its function until Dick Edgar’s purchase in 1985. Edgar began the process of converting the industrial building into multi-tenant office space, a use more complimentary to the Town of Easton’s growth and evolution. Miles & Stockbridge, a local law firm, was one of the buildings first professional office users; to this day, they remain a tenant under the Wilson family’s ownership.

The ‘iFrog Building’ renovation was led by Miller with onsite management provided by Superintendents Bruce West, Steve Eshleman, and Dale Reinhold. Gillis Gilkerson began the modernization process in September 2018 and the project was brought to completion in December 2020.
