LONG BRANCH: A developer is planning to build housing on the site of the closed Cabana Club on Ocean Avenue in the city.
Cabana Club was a bar and restaurant, located at 310 Ocean Ave., which closed in 2013 and has been sitting vacant since that time.
Mark Built Homes Development hopes to build a 7-story building on the property with 57 units of 1- and 2-bedroom housing.
Architect Dean Marchetto said the site will have an outdoor pool area, sun deck, a dune on the east side of the building, cabanas and a beach access path for residents.
"This has been months and months of preparation," said Marty McGann, an attorney for Mark Built Homes Development.
The developers have built similar projects in the state in the past, some of which were larger than this proposal.
The site is located in a redevelopment zone, so the developer will need the OK from the Long Branch Council before going for site plan approval from the Long Branch Planning Board.
"We still have work to do with these guys," Long Branch Business Administrator Howard Woolley said.
