Northstar Capital withdraws application


POINT PLEASANT — The borough zoning board of adjustment has received notice of the withdrawal of the application by Northstar Capital, LLC.

“Our office represents Northstar Capital, LLC in this matter. Please be advised that the applicant is withdrawing this application, without prejudice,” attorney Donna Jennings, of Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, wrote in a letter submitted to the board Friday, July 2.

Northstar Capital, LLC last appeared before the borough zoning board of adjustment on June 23 seeking preliminary and final major site plan approval to construct a three-story luxury apartment building with 16 units and 32 parking spaces, Point View Luxury Apartments, at 842 and 850 Arnold Ave., which currently features a single-family dwelling and a nonconforming dentist office.


As the site is located in the R-1A Single Family Zone, which permits single-family detached dwellings and essential services, Northstar Capital, LLC was seeking a use variance to permit the multi-family residential use. Northstar Capital, LLC was also requesting bulk variances with respect to the maximum number of stories, maximum impervious lot coverage and maximum number of signs; in addition to a number of design waivers.

The Ocean Star reached out seeking further comment from Ms. Jennings regarding the withdrawal of the application, but a response message stated she would be out of the office until Tuesday, July 13.

“I can confirm that we received correspondence asking that it be withdrawn without prejudice. It is a term of ours that allows them to refile,” board attorney Sean Gertner told The Ocean Star Wednesday.
