Kaplan Cos. cuts ribbon on Camelot at Toms River

High-end luxury rentals have amenities to match their name

The line writes itself: Anyone who has ever dreamed of living in Camelot now has that opportunity.

At least, you do in the Kaplan Cos. version — Camelot at Toms River, the developer’s first luxury rental community in Ocean County.

Camelot at Toms River, at 100 Kaplan Court in the Seacourt Pavilion, features low-maintenance living with 128 luxury residences, a resort-style pool with hydrotherapy, a doggie day spa, a tot lot, a bark park, electric charging stations, Wi-Fi access in the clubhouse and a resident lounge, among its many amenities.

In other words, it’s Camelot-esque.

Jason Kaplan, president of Kaplan Cos., said the community is ideal for young families that want to live in modern construction with many amenities while they save money to buy a house.

“Camelot at Toms River encapsulates all of the most popular features of our other high-end communities across New Jersey and beyond,” Kaplan said. “We have taken the absolute best amenities, based on our residents’ feedback, and brought them all to Toms River.”

Camelot at Toms River also bills itself as a terrific alternative for older residents, attracted to maintenance-free living, who want to remain in Toms River, close to family and friends.

The development — near the Garden State Parkway and Routes 9 and 37, offers one- and two-bedroom apartments, featuring up to 1,540 square feet of living space, private garages and 24-hour maintenance among the many amenities.

The history of the property does not trace back to King Arthur, but it does represent the family roots the Kaplans have in Toms River.

Jason Kaplan’s father, Michael Kaplan, graduated from Toms River High School in the 1950s. Among the family’s local real estate projects is the Seacourt Pavilion Shopping Center, built in the 1980s. Camelot at Toms River sits on land that was initially designed as “phase 2” of the mall.

“At one point, we envisioned this site would become a high-end convention center and a hotel, but the market demands changed,” Kaplan said. “But, we loved the property, and we knew it could be a real asset to the Toms River community, if we could just find the right use.

“Well, it may have taken 40 years or so, but we finally nailed it.”
