The new-look Drug Mart Plaza overhaul has begun.
An extensive renovation to Lakewood Plaza has begun. Discount Drug Mart will be the anchor tenant in the new space — and will expand it size by 30 percent, moving into some of the space formerly occupied by the Sakura Japanese Restaurant. The plaza will also feature newcomer Quaker Steak and Lube. Officials from the city and from developer Levey and Company met last year at the plaza to unveil the nearly $3 million plans. When it's finished, the plaza will be without longtime tenants Dots and Blockbuster Video, which both recently closed in Lakewood.

The buildout of the new 6,600-square-feet Quaker Steak and Lube is expected to begin soon.
The design plans are done. So are the plans for the overhaul of Lakewood Plaza. The buildout of the new 6,600-square-feet Quaker Steak and Lube is expected to begin soon.

Representatives from Quaker Steak have said that the company would like to begin construction as soon as possible.

The revised multi-million-dollar plans for Lakewood Plaza — also known as the Drug Mart Plaza — went “back to the drawing board” last month. Architects are set to present the new, revised plans to the city’s architectural board of review this Thursday. But officials say there are still some improvements that need to be made. In a departure from the original plan — because of an immovable gas line under the sidewalk along Detroit Avenue — architects presented new plans last month. The board wasn’t impressed. The renderings showed structure lacking the architectural design that city officials had hoped for. The towers were removed. The landscaping changed. The buildings all had the same height with few differentiating features. Several …

New, “bland” architectural renderings presented to the city’s architectural board of review.
It’s "back the drawing board" for the developers of a proposed $3 million facelift to Lakewood Plaza — better known as Drug Mart Plaza — on Detroit Avenue. On Thursday, David Berkovitz, the director of project management and construction for Levey and Company, presented new plans to the city’s architectural board of review. The board wasn’t impressed. In a departure from the original plan, the new Drug Mart Plaza renderings show a structure lacking the architectural design that city officials had hoped for. The towers are gone. The landscaping changed. The buildings have the same height with few differentiating features. Several board members said the new plan looks like a “strip mall” in outer suburbia. “It reads now like any strip …
