Brick Township’s Board of Adjustment will consider an application by a condominium development to add 24 affordable housing units within its 19-building complex, and demolish a maintenance building so a new clubhouse can be built.

The applicant, Waterside Gardens at Brick, will seek a variance to exceed the township’s ordinance covering housing density. Brick’s zoning law sets the maximum permitted density of the complex at six units per acre; currently, the complex adds up to 7.97 units per acre and, should the new units be added, 8.35 units per acre will exist at the site, according to documents filed with the township.

Waterside Gardens is located off Drum Point Road along Schindler Drive.

The maintenance building, under the proposal, will be demolished in favor of a new clubhouse with an adjacent covered patio, gazebo, exterior shower and swimming pool along with additional improvements to the parking area and walkways through the complex.

The application also seeks relief from several drainage requirements.

The application will be heard by the board at its Feb. 17 meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex on Chambers Bridge Road.
