In a number of years, vacationers to New Jersey may have a brand new luxurious trip vacation spot miles in-land from the long-lasting shoreline.
NBC10’s Ted Greenberg not too long ago caught up with John Connors, the mission’s developer and CEO of Brickstone Realty, to break down his imaginative and prescient for, what he is calling, Clermont Lodge and why he thinks the Backyard State is prepared for an in-land trip vacation spot.
“Everybody knows about the beach,” Connors instructed NBC10. “That’s not a secret. But, Cape May County is so much more than that. And, you know, we have lots of friends that come visit, and, you know, they’re beachgoers. But, they are also bikers, and burger and beer lovers, and wine tasting aficionados. And all of those things you can do in abundance in Cape May County.”
In accordance to a proposal submitted to Dennis Township, the 120-unit “first class” resort could be developed on 30-acres of “wooded and undeveloped” land close to the place Route 83 meets Route 9.
Connors mentioned that the mission is predicted to value about $65 million to develop and would come with 56-guest rooms in a three-story foremost lodge.
There’s additionally room for 40 one- and two-bedroom bungalows, 24 particular person cabins, a tavern and different facilities.
The mission is described in zoning paperwork as “a woodland escape for mind, body and spirit. A sustainable connection to nature” — and strolling trails are proposed all through the property “in an effort to connect patrons and guests to the site’s natural features.”
“I think this site is extraordinary,” Connors mentioned.
Connors mentioned there are a selection of points that they may want to sort out earlier than any development may start.
He does not count on to get shovels within the floor till subsequent yr on the earliest with a aim of opening someday in 2026.
