Barnegat-based developer Walters broke ground on Osborn Dunes in the barrier island section of Brick Township on Oct. 29 — 10 years to the day after the community was ravaged by Superstorm Sandy.
The site, located between Mantoloking and Normandy Beach, formerly home to Camp Osborn’s single-family bungalows, was destroyed by the tidal surge and fire following Superstorm Sandy. The new development will revitalize the location with the introduction of 67 oceanside homes designed for year-round use.
The Osborn Dunes HOA’s selection of Walters to develop the two-story duplexes is a testament to the company’s strong community ties and extensive experience building in a shore environment. Each of the newly built units, designed to meet FEMA’s flood guidelines, will be elevated above the floodplain, constructed to withstand severe weather and flooding, and boast double the square footage of usable living space as compared to their pre-Sandy predecessors.
Over the past two decades Walters has developed affordable housing communities throughout New Jersey, including age-restricted developments in Barnegat, Toms River, Stafford and Seaside Heights.
