Move On In!

    Walked past it last night, place looks awesome! Most occupants are long term Belamr residents that either sold their home or moved up to a brand new rental. Great way to support a community and keep more people shopping in town. Thank you Mr. Depeppe

    Russo and McBride wanted to keep living in Belmar affordable. Advertising like this did not help. Not that I would have voted for them, but it seems there has been some doublespeak going on.

    Anyone know how much these are renting for?

  4. #2 – I was thinking the same thing about Russo and McBride’s campaign message to keep Belmar affordable (that and ‘movies on the beach’ were their big promises). I wonder what they think of this? Of course, we all had to wonder what they thought about everything.

    Watching their construction over 18 months, they are poorly made of wood, looked like match sticks.

    The public parking lot behind Marina View Tower is pretty much full every night. It was never that congested before. I doubt there will be many empty parking spaces in that area once those apartments are full. The over congestion may actually hurt local businesses rather than help?

    Hideous exterior. Nothing shore-like or nautical about them – way too urban a look for a shore town.

    Great, Great day today. The Lord was smiling at us by giving us such a day to be outside in.
    #6 – Correct, they didn’t even use metal studs. I can’t imagine a building of that size being done with all wood like that. But to use metal studs would have baffled most of the Mexican work force and cost more. Lets not let a little thing like inferior building material get in the way of a profit. It won’t be long before there are problems in that building.

    Put parking meters in the 22 town owned parking spaces. And enforce it. That’ll solve the issue

  13. #9 – I agree. Belmar is losing it’s lovely shore town atmosphere.

    the 22 Belmar public parking spaces below the building should be electric vehicles only … let the building owner install electric revenue charging stations & keep the place clean

    How noisy is it if they built these right next to the train? And that the “look” is because they are in the “transit village area” even though a small beach town that would probably welcome a more coastal look.
    I also heard they didn’t put windows in the second bedrooms.

    So, BA Kirshbaum. What is the town going to do about these 22 parking spots that are already numbered? They should be marked public. It just goes to show you how sleazy Deepeepee is. He never had any intention of fulfilling his end of the agreement, especially after the town gave him the property for next to nothing. No more big developments for our town!

    Obviously you either worked for MD or work for Despepe. The building is too big and absolutely ugly. Made of cheap materials, not enough of their own parking so they will take up the parking at the plaza.

    9th and main should be two stories only

    Don’t count on it. A redevelopment plan is going before the Planning Board on Monday night for the bank lot and the lot behind it. Block 95, Lots 5 & 7. The plan permits a 4 story building. Why a plan for these two lots only when the entire block on main street between 9th and 10th avenues has been designated as an area in need of redevelopment? Sounds fishy to me. Attend Monday night’s meeting to send a message that Belmar doesn’t need any more apartment houses. Yes, that’s what they are. Let’s stay a small coastal town, and stop the Council and Planning Board from creating Belmar City. Monday night 7 pm be there if you love Belmar!

    Access to sunshine was one of the main drivers of the first zoning laws, as a new exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York, Mastering the Metropolis, explores. Here are five key points along New York City’s never-ending quest to stay lit, the natural way.

    If you happen to visit the NYC Thanksgiving Day Parade on 6th Avenue and the midtown streets, you may notice that midtown building silhouettes against the western sky are nearly exact inversion of their own stepping geometry rising from the street to the sky. It is interesting, but how did the shape of this dramatic composition come to be?
    The shape of this part of the city and most everywhere else you look in New York City is a direct relationship to the building setback regulations. Setback regulations force developers to push their buildings away from the street as the buildings grow in height, similar to the tiers on a wedding cake. Setbacks were mandated to ensure that streets didn’t suffocate between parallel rows of vertical towers and that sunlight and air could make its way down to the ground.
    The imaginary construction line that define these building setbacks is called the sky exposure plane. The sky exposure plane begins at a distance at or above the ground floor plane and slopes away from the street.

    Did anyone look behind the building?
    The lumber yard has anew look .
    RED metal everywhere to hold the lumber?
    Did anyone vote on this?
    My opinion it should have been a quiet grey or something to blend in with the neighborhood.
    RED SCREAMS LOOK AT ME!!!! unbelievable
    something you drove right past before now shouts out . I really don’t get the thought process here.
    Whoever rents those condos now has a bad view
    Maybe the shade tree committee could have gotten involved to soften the look with green somewhere

    The lumber company had been in Belmar for years, before MVT building. It’s the 4 story apt bldg on 10th that’s the nuisance, not the new shelves at Jaeger.

    #24 Anonymous: I totally agree. I was shocked to see how visible these ugly red shelves are from so many angles, so many streets from Rte 35 to Main St., 10th & 12th Aves. I don’t know how this slipped through for approval. It is an eyesore and totally unnecessary for them to be so vivid. Jaeger Lumber should be made to paint them a neutral color and have some respect for their neighbors. And #25, it doesn’t matter how long Jaeger Lumber has been here, they still put up a monstrosity and deserve some pushback from the community!

    The lumber company has now enclosed the sides and it is UGLY. Big beige wall.

    Also, The grammer school is getting a new basketball court on the far end of the playground near railroad avenue, next to the lumber company. Good for the kids.
