700 Monroe Avenue Asbury Park

One of New Jersey's fastest-growing beach towns could be getting a new mixed-use project with affordable housing at a lot just off Asbury Park's Main Street. Drawn up by Newark-based OCA Architects, the application calls for a 61-unit development with 1,024 square feet of retail space on the ground level to be accessed from the land's corner with Main Street. Of those living spaces, 13 of them would be set aside as affordable housing units, a positive sign for those concerned with Asbury Park's inclusiveness. The project would include an elevator and feature several penthouse units with rooftop access. A parking garage with 34 parking spaces and six electric vehicle charging stations would be featured and 15 shrubs and seven trees are to be planted along Monroe Avenue as part of the work.
