LITTLE SILVER: WORK STARTS ON CONDOS

Six years after winning its original approvals, construction of the 39-unit Carriage Gate condo project got underway with site-clearance work at Eastview and Oceanport avenues in Little Silver this week.

Developer Patrick Kalian, of Shrewsbury-based Kalian Builders, tells redbankgreen that four acres of the 14-acre site will be cleared, with the balance deeded to the town or another entity for preservation. “It will stay heavily wooded, just as it is now,” he said.

The townhouse-style homes, including eight designated as ‘affordable,’ are expected to become available in June, 2014, Kalian said. A restriction limiting occupancy to residents 55 and older was dropped in 2011. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
