Long Branch's Third Avenue Rehabilitation Continues

LONG BRANCH: After recently being designated part of the city's Transit Village zoning district, Third Avenue has already seen two projects approved that developers hope will rehabilitate the area.

Prime LLC's application is the latest Third Avenue project to be approved by the Long Branch Planning Board, just a few months after a development proposed by DKD Investments, LLC, was also given the go-ahead by the board.

Prime LLC will demolish the existing structures at 13-15 Third Ave., which currently contains a liquor store and flower shop. Once the buildings are gone, the developers will construct a several-story mixed use building on the site with a liquor/sundry store on the first level and residential units on the upper floors.

In April, DKD Investments was given the OK to build a mixed use project on the corner of Third Avenue and Pavilion with 3,100 square feet of commercial space on the first floor and 46 multi-family residential units on the second floor.

Mixed use is encouraged in a Transit Village, which allow Long Branch to redevelop areas surrounding Monmouth Medical Center, the train station and along the waterfront.

Highlights of the master plan for redevelopment include:

  • Bicycle routes throughout the city and to the rail platform, to be completed by 2019
  • Mixed-use districts that encourage pedestrian activity, public safety, human interaction, and easy access to goods, services and mass transit
  • Commercial development and retrofitting that emphasizes quality architecture, shared access and parking, transit friendly facilities, and walkability

The Long Branch City Council first voted to approve an application the NJ DOT for a transit village designation in 2013 and received approval in June.
