Kushner’s involvement with the project began in September 2022 and the company worked with various municipal agencies to advance the project. State Sen. Vin Gopal praised the Kushner team for helping revitalize a neighborhood that generally hasn’t shared in the investments made along the Long Branch oceanfront.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Sen. Gopal. “This property, as it gets going, is going to play an incredible role in the rest of Long Branch. We’ve seen other communities over the last 20 years — Asbury Park, Red Bank — really progress and this has been the piece to really unite Long Branch and make sure we can do that.”
