Victoria Rose Development Hearings Continue Monday 

Aug 22, 2018

The Beach Haven Land Use Board will hold a special meeting on Monday, Aug, 27, 7 p.m. to continue hearings on the proposed Victoria Rose development.

Earlier this year, partners Terry Moeller and Tom and Joan Bertussi announced plans to tear down the bank building on Bay Avenue and build a retail/residential complex. The complex would contain 22 residential units, each covering 1,200 square feet. Five apartments would be set aside for affordable housing.

The development would also include five yet-to-be-named retail businesses, covering less than 40,000 square feet. The current brick structure was built in 1963 as the headquarters for the old Beach Haven National Bank. Over the years, it became the home of several different financial institutions, with the most recent being Sovereign Bank.

Mayor Nancy Taggart Davis, a board member, said the developers have made revised plans concerning parking and flood control.

“Then it will be up to us to determine if they are consistent with our master plan,” she said.

The developers hope to have Victoria Rose completed by the summer of 2019.  —E.E.
