From “60 Main Avenue News:”

“Some other news to share regarding buildings on Main Ave that are or will be going under major renovations/building : The owner, Carter Sackman,  of 60 Main Ave, has plans to add a third floor to its building to create luxury rental apartments.
“Support beams to support the planned third floor addition has already been installed. Yet, no permits have been shown to the public, while DJ’s also shows no permits for his renovations.
“Plans also include renovating its existing second floor rental apartments, refacing the front of the building and renovating inside the shops.

“How is this going to get passed through? Will this be another similar 50 Main Ave. saga or will it be another successful developers plan executed?”

Editor’s Note:  The owner of #60 Main Avenue is said to be  Sackman Enterprises, an established real estate company based in New York City and surrounding states including 6 properties in Asbury Park.

This OG address is not listed on their web site.  We spoke to two current tenants who have no information regarding the third floor project. If any of you have any information about zoning, site plans, variances or other pertinent facts, please share with the Blogfinger readers.

Are we witnessing the intentional progressive increase of density on Main Avenue that will make our downtown more congested with more parking troubles?  Are we witnessing an acceleration of illegal approvals by Township officials beginning lately with Mary’s Place, then the rebuilding of #50 Main Ave,  and now #60 Main Avenue?

Every one of these projects has been done or will be done without following State RSIS parking regulations. And what about handicapped access for all these projects, and has the Township’s zoning been properly implemented for these deals?   And what other such plans are in the works around town?

And what does it mean that a big time developer, Sackman Enterprises, currently busy in Asbury Park, is dipping its wick into the commercial real estate situation of Ocean Grove?

Did you witness the massive crowds in town for the recent flea market and then today for the craft show?  Has the relentless increased popularity of Ocean Grove accelerated the attention of monied real estate interests which might be pushing for greater commercialization?

These are the sorts of issues that the OGHOA should be watching.  If these events and hints of events are ignored, it is at the peril of losing our quaint town as we know it.
