Standing 17 stories above the Atlantic Ocean across the street, is the Ocean Club at Asbury Park, N.J. The Ocean Club offers 180-270-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean with floor to ceiling windows. It is filled with chic, yet urban residential housing and a boutique hotel.
Asbury Park is a very historic “beach” town in N. J., and is home to the world-famous historical music venue, The Stone Pony, which is just down the street from this new high rise.
The structure is a unique “hybrid” which incorporates regular weight stone concrete columns and high strength lightweight cast -in -place floors for fire ratings and dead load reduction.
The close proximity of the building to the ocean made a solid concrete frame the structure of choice.
The use of lightweight concrete floors allowed for significant dead load reduction required for the location and allowed the designer to increase the number of floors in the building.
