West Side Lofts Looking Pretty

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – To the casual eye, it’s largely a construction project still under way, with the dust, and noise of machines and men still hard at work. But in the very near future, “You’ll be living in luxurious surroundings in a downtown atmosphere,” said Lewis Zlotnick, president of Woodmont Properties, one of the partners in building West Side Lofts, as he provided a tour of the project.Woodmont, headquartered in Fairfield, is partnering with Metrovation Terranomics to construct West Side Lofts the large residential and retail development at the corner of West Front Street and Bridge Avenue in the heart of the borough’s west side Arts and Antique District.Metrovation Terranomics is a Washington State-based real estate development firm that counts among its properties The Grove and The Grove West shopping centers, in Shrewsbury.The multiyear project is nearing completion, expected to be finished by February or March, with tenants moving in at that time.On the residential side, the development has 92 rental apartments units, mostly one- and two-bedroom units along with two-story townhomes and three, three story live/work maisonettes spaces, “for those who want to live above their work,” said Lewis Zlotnick, president of Woodmont Properties, believing this concept, “is unique in this area.”Under the residential units and planned amenities is the retail component with approximately 25,000 square feet. So far, Metrovation and Woodmont have leased roughly 12,000 square feet to Triumph Brew Pub and restaurant, which has locations in Princeton and New Hope, Pennsylvania. Zlotnick also announced the latest retail tenant: West Elm home furnishings, which will be using about 11,000 square feet. As for the remaining approximately 2,000 square feet of retail space, Zlotnick said, “We’re waiting on some counter offers.”The project includes a 221-stall enclosed parking garage intended to provide spaces for the commercial and residential tenants, customers as well as making spaces available for the public at large, according to Zlotnick.The developers had previously offered a VIP registration for early leasing of residential units, getting about 2,000 potential tenants to sign up. The registration resulted in 26 leases signed. “That’s a very good statistic, Zlotnick noted, “given the building is not completed.”Rents on the residential units will range from $2,200-$4,400 monthly, depending on the units, Zlotnick said.To give hopeful residents an idea the site has a completed and furnished model, displaying one of the live/work maisonettes spaces. That space has two baths, two bedrooms and full kitchen in the two-tier living quarters, and “it has all the feel of a luxury home,” Zlotnick offered.Every apartment comes with its own hot water heater and washer and dryer, he said.One of the major selling points the representatives stressed is the site’s offerings of available shared space and services. “What’s also great is the amenities,” said Mark Anderson, community manager for West Side Lofts. And those include a lobby area which is planned to have seating and TVs available and a fireplace. There will also be a game room and gym area. “So, you’ll have very little excuse to not get your workout in,” Anderson kidded.The rooftop lounge area, on top of the contemporary architecture building’s five floors, will have a hot tub installed and a kitchen area for the residents, as well as a view of area that takes in both the Navesink and Swimming rivers.In this location “You’re not a prisoner of your apartment,” Zlotnick said. “It’s conducive to socializing, meeting your neighbors.”Another big draw and a major thrust of the marketing is the location: situated a short walk to the borough’s downtown and even shorter walk to the NJ Transit commuter station will be a draw for many, Zlotnick explained.“There is an opportunity for downtown living,” he said, noting the project is being marketed to young professionals and Baby Boomers who are looking to downsize.Local officials have long touted the project seeing it a cornerstone for the burgeoning west side redevelopment.last_img read more

Call for action as Inishowen residents left without doctor for over four weeks

first_imgConcern has been raised over the lack of medical clinics with staff in South Inishowen with the HSE pulling doctors from Fahan and Muff in recent weeks leaving residents with a €30 taxi fare to the nearest practice. The two practices have been left without a doctor for over four weeks and it is understood that the current situation will remain the same until next month at least.Inishowen councillor Martin Farren, speaking to Donegal Daily, said a similar situation arose several years ago. The Moville native has called for the HSE to provide clarity surrounding the ‘outrageous’ uncertainty for the people in the area.He said: “I think it’s absolutely disgraceful that the people of Muff are being treated this way by the HSE.“I would feel the HSE need to get their act together and appoint a doctor to be present at the clinic to deal with peoples medical problems.“To expect patients to travel to Buncrana is totally outrageous and we are actually talking about a 20-mile round trip and if an elderly person has to pay a taxi to get there it is extremely expensive. “In this day and age, this is totally unacceptable to the people of Inishowen and especially the people of Muff and Fahan.“The clinic was put there for a reason,” he added. “The clinic was put there to deal with patients in those areas and so there is an onus on the HSE to sort this out.“This uncertainty that has been given by the HSE, with resident left without a doctor for the past four weeks, is absolutely crazy.“There has to be a timetable put in place so that people know that the doctor is going to be there on a weekly basis to treat the patients,” Farren said.“One of the most important things to people, whether that is families, young people or residents in general, is their health and that needs to be prioritised.” Call for action as Inishowen residents left without doctor for over four weeks was last modified: July 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Child of homeless couple stolen, sold for adoption

first_imgA childless couple’s desire to adopt a male child without going through the legal process led to the kidnapping and sale of a two-year-old son of a homeless couple for ₹30,000 in Odisha’s Berhampur.Six persons were arrested on Monday in connection with the theft and sale of the child, who was rescued and handed over to his parents on Sunday night.The arrested persons included the childless couple, Brundaban Rana (52) and his wife Baijayanti; Prafulla Nayak and his wife Mamata, who prepared a false adoption document claiming they were the parents of the kidnapped child; Santosh Rana, the brother-in-law of Brundaban, and another man named Siba Nayak.The parents of the child are from the Gajapati district. They, along with their four-year-old daughter and two year-old-son, had reached Berhampur a few weeks ago to make and sell idols made of plaster of paris and clay. At night they used to sleep under an overbridge in the Gosaninagaon police station area. On September 19 night their son was kidnapped, following which they complained to the police the next day.Police Inspector Sunit Soren said Brundaban, a bank attendant, had asked Santosh to arrange a child for adoption. Santosh contacted his friend Prafulla, who , with the help of Siba, stole the son of the homeless couple. Santosh paid ₹30,000 to Prafulla for the stolen child. “Later Prafulla and his wife prepared a false legal agreement in which they claimed they were handing over their child to Brundaban for adoption by consent,” said Mr. Soren.However, some locals had seen Siba moving around with the child on September 20. On September 22, Siba was arrested and his interrogation revealed the whole racket.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Cardiff boss Warnock furious with ref ‘experiment’ for Watford defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCardiff City boss Neil Warnock was furious after their 3-2 win over Watford.Andrew Madley officiated the game at Vicarage Road, which ended in a win for the Hornets, the young referee’s first Premier League game of the season.In fact it was only Madley’s second ever match officiating in the English top tier, a decision which left Warnock bemused.”I was disappointed in one or two things,” said Warnock.”I thought Murphy should have had a free-kick, I thought it was very similar to the one he gave on the edge of their box.”And I thought Troy Deeney was lucky not to get a card if I’m honest. Conditions were poor but once he started sliding in and the goalie was going to get it, he could have pulled his foot away.”When I’ve got Andre Marriner sat at the side of me and I’ve got a young referee who’s (refereeing) his first game of the season, I don’t understand that at all.”Whether it’s just because ‘it’s only Cardiff City and we’ll let someone have an experiment today…” last_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Molde chief Neerland: Solskjaer will bring attacking style to Man Utdby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveMolde managing director Oystein Neerland expects Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bring an attacking brand of football to Manchester United.Molde have agreed to ‘lend’ Solskjaer to United as a caretaker following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.Neerland said: “For us, he is an offensive coach who plays entertaining football and he sees winning 4-2 as being better than 1-0.“He is very good at building teams, working within a structure to develop home grown players and giving them confidence to play but also being able to know when to sell them when the time is right because that is how this club works.“He has been so successful here. He has been here for six years – before and after Cardiff – and is very stable, very loyal and, just like at Manchester United, he is a former player so he knows the club very well and knows the DNA of the club.“He is a very positive guy. He is very easy to like and has a clear vision of how to play football but also works well with individual players.“There is no doubt in my mind that he will do well at Manchester United. He is a club legend there and that immediately means he will get respect from the players and the fans.“I don’t know well enough what’s happened inside Manchester United to comment and I will be careful on what I say on that.“But what I do know is that it’s important that he knows the history of the club and knows Manchester United’s past and what makes them successful.“It’s new times for the players but I know they will like him personally, they will enjoy working with him and it will be a big challenge to get some good results.“Of course it’s a surprise but not so much when you remember he’s got such history with the club, understands the club and he is also such a nice guy. He works so well with players and is a gentleman.” last_img read more
