Amateur historical architects are already raving about this home under construction on Ocean Avenue—a work in progress. Our consultant has a one word review of this project so far, “WOW!”

Johnny on the spot evokes the old days when there were outhouses.  We assume that there will eventually be indoor plumbing.

Besides the welcoming sight of this  single family home going up where condominiums were once proposed—at the Manchester Inn location before it was destroyed by fire, other new Victorians (four of them) are actively under construction at the Whitfield Hotel site  (Bath and Surf Avenues.)   Recently #19 Bath Avenue reached the market at $1.25 million.   #17 was similarly priced.  As far as we can tell, no condos are presently in the works.

Whitfield single family houses

The owner of the Warrington who is suing the Township because he wants a hotel  (? or condos) on his Lake Avenue property, the site of a huge fire last March which destroyed that hotel,  might take notice of what happened to the Manchester and the Whitfield, and back off—choosing instead to put up one or two single family homes over there as well.

It would be good if the OGCMA  (who owns all the land in town) would pay attention to the Master Plan and support the Single Family Homes in the Grove Movement–to join with the citizens of Ocean Grove who are solidly behind that concept.

The CMA might begin by pressuring the Warrington owner to change his vision for that site and then top it off by withdrawing their support for the aggressive and destructive  North End Redevelopment Plan.
