Marriott is planning to build a 105-room Residence Inn hotel in Brick Township, Mayor John Ducey said at a township council meeting held Tuesday night.

The hotel would occupy a triangular, 10-acre plot of land on Route 88 near the highway’s intersection with Burrsville Road, near Jack Martin Boulevard. The company is planning on submitting an application to the planning board within the next two months, Ducey said, and the project will also include some retail space and apartments.

“It’s retail with some residential above some of the retail,” said Ducey.

Ducey said he met with representatives from Marriott who expressed their desire to build a hotel in Brick, and the Route 88 site was recently selected. A new hotel in Brick will be a much-appreciated asset in town, the mayor said.

“I know people who have gotten married, I got married in 1999, and there was no place for anyone to stay,” he said.Β  “They had to stay in Point Pleasant Beach, Wall, but now we’ll have a centralized place in town for people to stay.”

A hotel was a long-sought addition to the township, which required the construction of a full-service hotel in a redevelopment plan hatched for the former Foodtown site on Route 70. But the redeveloper, M&M Realty Partners, claimed that the market would not support such a hotel and refused to build it, ultimately requesting the township council allow condominiums, apartments and retail space to be built at the site. The township moved to terminate the redevelopment agreement with M&M earlier this year, and deadlines for M&M to comply with portions of the agreement are up in late December, Ducey said.

    Send M&M packing! Yeah Marriott!! However, that does seem a strange site, unless they see a reason for supporting hospital guest? With new parkway entrances and exits kinda close, but a Residence Inn isn’t about overnighters?

    Just great, the powers that be can’t wait to turn Brick into a concrete jungle. Planning board? We have one of those? They must not be very good about planning considering the town has become one big urban sprawl that looks more like a city in North Jersey than a Jersey Shore town on Google Earth.

      I don’t know what’s wrong with the woods and brush there. God seems to be doing alright with it already. Lord knows we don’t need anymore people down here.

  • Andy Pat

    some apartments? I believe 166 apartments are part of the proposal. This site, on the Parkway access road (Burrsville) is not suitable for high density residential housing in addition to 105 room hotel and 23 proposed retail units. The added traffic, especially during morning and evening commuting times, will be a nightmare.

      Strongly agree ..its a mess now with parkway work starting ..

  • JIm

    Funny the developer says no one wants to come and yet Marriott is coming. Just another case of something fishy going on with the old Foodtown site.
    Joe it is time that we all see Brick as a BIG town and let the growth happen.
    I for one am very tired of the nay sayers to anything that means growth in the town!!

    • DragonDad77

      Thats what I was thinking. That whole redevelopment deal should be looked into. Blame that deal for a hotel building somewhere else.

    • j.jones

      That builder is very shady and had a plan to make big profit and someone fig it out and put it on hold …

    • Joseph Woolston Brick

      Jim if you want to live in a big town, then moved to one, the rest of us want to keep Brick as non citified as we can, If your one of those who moved to Brick from the city and miss it, may I suggest moving back.

      • JIm

        Grow up you. Must be older than dirt. W hat is wrong with growth? It is people like you than make living anywhere miserable, because if everyone doesn’t agree with you we must wrong!

        I tend to agree with Joe on this one. Growth is not a bad thing in most cases but seemingly unplanned commercial growth here in Brick isn’t one of them. There is no reason why another 10+ acres of undeveloped land has to be torn up and paved over for something that, if it has to be built, can be located elsewhere with less disruption. Think about what the traffic has developed into on Rt. 70 and Brick Blvd. and then project that onto Rt. 88. Add the new Parkway entrance/ exit roads and what will we have? For what end result? A hotel, which I agree is a nice addition but as we have discussed before could be a great tenant at a new Forge Pond development ( minus the townhouses/ apartments/ retail).

      • JIm

        I was talking about a completely different project you moron!!!!

  • j.jones

    GREAT IDEA FOR A MOTEL IN BRICK BUT IN THAT LOCATION WHAT ARE YOU THINKING MAYOR ??

    • DragonDad77

      Is the mayor building it?

      • #@#.com

        No, but the Mayors planning boards have to approve it.

      • j.jones

        #@#.COM..Thanks for beating me too it ..The mayor is charge now and he takes the good with the bad everything is his fault just like it was with Steve A..Lets face it a great idea for a motel but that location isnt the right place there are so many other places like foodtown lot and even the old WOW building and what about the lot by 70 and ceder bridge rd on right by jug handle ..just for a few ??..

  • #@#.com

    Is that site part of the ” hospital support zone” ? This plan is just another high density housing development.
    Now that Kimball hospital in Lakewood is no longer delivering babies, The families who have 8,9, 10 babies need a place to stay overnight near Brick Hospital.
    They just built a nice new hospital wing for them, now a nice hotel within walking distance.
    Oy Vey
    Better train the Brick police how to turn on light switches and light the stoves for them.

    That area is not zoned for retail and residential. It is a Hospital support Zone. The traffic on RT 88 between Lakewood and RT 70 is terrible now. Same with Jack Martin blvd. All new intersections at Jack Martin will have to be built. RT 88 and Burrsville rd will have to be changed and upgraded.
    East Lakewood is in full progression.
    The lawyers and engineers are foaming at the mouth

    When all the palms are greased and the Marriot is approved, at least make sure that the parking lot is designed better than the ones at Costco, Target, Shop-Rite and all the other cluster-fux around town.

    • DragonDad77

      are those the Mayor’s fault too?

  • Beach N8iv

    Bricktucky is quickly becoming the Iron Brick section like in Newark!

  • Mike Morton

    This proves that M&M’s contention that a hotel would not be supported in Brick (their excuse for changing the Foodtown redevelopment proposal) is bullsh-t. The concept of an extended stay hotel doesn’t make any sense however and based on straightforward industry data it doesn’t belong here or anywhere else in Brick. The whole thing is very strange. By the way how much retail/ apartments????? And who is the developer??? Hotel operator????? Also, what are we waiting for from M&M on the Foodtown redevelopment transaction. The agreement is in default and we were supposedly notifying them of its termination. What gives???? The whole thing is unsettling. By the way, can’t we find some location that wouldn’t require another 10 acres of trees to be cut down???

    JIM must be bi-polar. Here is a previous post of his.
