POINT PLEASANT BEACH — Owners of the Gottlieb Building will seek to open a multi-use space in the historical structure renovating two retail spaces on the first floor and adding a seven-room hotel above.

EAF ONE LLC came before the Zoning Board of Adjustment Thursday night to begin their presentation on the project. The building, bought by Steve and Sue Fisher last December, was spared demolition preserving the 114-year-old building. Now the group hopes to bring more to the space.

The proposed renovations brought by EAF ONE LLC would include a “modern-day hotel” with seven rooms using a fully online booking and virtual concierge service, according to John Jackson representing the group.


The project requests multiple site variances for space, parking and signage as well as a use variance for the zone.

EAF ONE LLC did not complete its presentation to the board. The board will continue the hearing during its re-organization meeting Jan. 7.
