A 128 unit apartment complex will be built on vacant land behind the Loews Theater off of Hooper Avenue near the Ocean County Mall. The project is part of a 1285 unit affordable housing plan that the local Republicans voted to approve back in October of 2016. Just 28 of those apartments will count towards the affordable housing agreement.
A public hearing on the apartment complex is scheduled for the May 2 Planning Board meeting. The Kaplan Development Group is being represented by Tom Monahan, a partner in the politically connected Law Firm, Gilmore and Monahan. Mr. Monhan served as the Toms River Board of Education Attorney during the Ritacco era and George Gilmore is the Ocean County Republican Chairman. Mr. Gilmore is currently under federal investigation for tax evasion.
Camelot at Seacourt will be built on about 17 acres near the intersection of Bay and Hooper avenues. The complex will include eight buildings, along with an in-ground pool, community center, and dog park.
