A developer has gained permission to construct six, single-family homes off Route 70 in the northern portion of the township.

Arya Properties, of Island Heights, was recently granted approval to build six homes on seven newly-defined lots near the intersection of Route 70 and the northeast corner of Van Zile Road. The seventh lot will serve as a retention basin for the new development.

According to township documentation, the project required a use variance since the two-acre site is located in a business zone where residential development is normally not permitted. The developer also sought more routine “bulk” variances. The board granted permission for the six homes to be constructed but required that the new lots can never be further subdivided, a deed restriction be placed on the retention basin lot that requires proper shade trees, and a six foot fence be built along the frontage around the perimeter of the retention basin.


Arya Properties is regional real estate developer that has built new communities across Ocean and Monmouth counties, including in Toms River and Wall townships.

    I feel bad for the people living in Kentwood Village that back up to the strip of woods along 70. They will lose that small bit of privacy they had.

    So will these homes be ON Route 70? There is no side road there, unless they are constructing one. Good luck selling those.

    Lakewood does a lot of bulk variances.
    Why allow residential units on Rt 70?
    Were any palms greased?
    These will become the olny residental homes on rt 70 between Lakewood and Brielle.
