The firm recently secured the following approvals:

Pleasantville, NJ Zoning Board of Adjustment
Obtained second amended preliminary and final site plan approval with a use variance for a strip center developer to allow the maintenance and operation of a self-service laundromat, otherwise not a permitted use in the zoning district.

Pleasantville, NJ Planning Board
Obtained amended preliminary and final site plan approval with associated variance relief to allow for the design modification of a warehouse/office building, based upon both Atlantic County's requirement for a dedicated right-of-way and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's approval of a modification to the wetlands transition area on site. The variance relief allowed for the construction and maintenance of the building and for the installation of free-standing signage, both with a zero front-yard setback.

Ocean City, NJ Planning Board
Obtained preliminary and final site plan approval with associated variance relief to allow for the installation and maintenance of a privacy fence system enclosing and dividing a "private boardwalk" area contiguous to a hotel condominium project, which previously was the subject of an amendment to the City's Redevelopment Area Plan. After a series of hotly contested appearances before both City Council and the Zoning Board of Adjustment, we obtained the amendment to the Redevelopment Area Plan to allow for the conversion and reconstruction of abandoned retail space to residential hotel suites. The approval of the fence system completed the application process.
