Construction Begins to Replace Demolished Motel in Seaside Heights



Construction has begun to replace a motel on the Boulevard in Seaside Heights that was demolished last year with a new condominium complex.

The property that once housed the Coral Sands Motel, at 1010 Boulevard, between Hancock and Sheridan Avenues, will be replaced with a 15-unit condominium complex. The complex will retain the name as its historic ancestor; it will be known as the Coral Sands Condominiums.

The Coral Sands project largely follows the design scheme favored by the borough as part of its larger effort to redevelop the entire length of the Boulevard district, though the property itself has never been a formally-declared area in need of redevelopment. Its sale was voluntarily struck between a previous owner and a new developer.

The complex was designed by MODE Architects, an Asbury Park-based firm that has been behind several major projects in the borough, including the ultra-modern Ocean Club on the southern end of the boardwalk. Planning board approval was obtained in August 2022 for the project, and included the combination of two lots, one measuring 9,500 square feet which was expanded with a 20-by-60 foot parcel subdivided from another.

The complex will consist of a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom units in a two-story condominium building. The twin-lot orientation, MODE’s representatives said during the approval process, would allow for amenities to be placed in a midsection area. The roof area may also have the potential to host a myriad of amenities for the residents as well, and the complex will feature ground-level parking.
