MANASQUAN — A hearing for the Union Avenue project proposed by Union Avenue 33 LLC was rescheduled Tuesday night after planning board officials cited a deviation from the original concept plan.

The applicant is seeking preliminary and final major site-plan approval to demolish the existing structures at 33, 33 ½ – 39 Union Ave., and is proposing the construction of 23 apartment units, nine of which would be designated as affordable housing.

The Union Avenue project is affiliated with the Broad Street project that was approved by the planning board in the fall. The projects further the borough’s affordable housing plan; however, one could not be developed without the other.

Planning Board Attorney George McGill stated that he believed the plans and elevations submitted by the applicant were a “substantial deviation” from the original concept plan, which was agreed upon in a settlement between the borough and applicant as well as memorialized by a zoning ordinance.
