The luxury boutique hotel and condominium development, located just steps of the famed Asbury Park boardwalk, has officially opened this past 4th of July. Just in time for an extended weekend at the shore and to catch Asbury Park’s fireworks displayed, sponsored by Asbury Ocean Club. The 17 story tower was developed by iStar and was designed by Handel Architects of New York. The lower levels of the building feature the 54 room hotel operated by Salt Hotels, followed by 130 residential units above. Both guests and residents will enjoy a variety of indoor-outdoor spaces which include an expansive terrace with a swimming pool overlooking the ocean, a full-service pool bar and grill, a garden pavilion with reflecting pool, and an outdoor lounge with fireplace.
Concreteworks East was excited to collaborate on this amazing seaside resort, only 30 miles away from our facility, in supplying a variety of custom precast GFRC products throughout the building. Starting with the lobby, Concreteworks East fabricated over 3,000 square feet of 48in x 48in and 12in x 12in concrete tile in our popular Champagne color with a polished finish. Matching precast wall panels were supplied at 1″ thick for the residential and hotel elevator lobbies. The final piece in the lobby is reception desk and adjoining column, similarly clad with 1″ thick precast concrete paneling in our Champagne color.
In the outdoor areas, most notably the main swimming features our custom GFRC pool coping throughout the perimeter of the pool in our Cumulus color. The coping features cast-in place acrylic lettering on both the top surface and in-pool return to mark off the pool’s depth and to display the no diving symbols. The outdoor lounge features a large fireplace that was clad in 1″ thick GFRC panels in our Sandy Hook color, fabricated in large 3-dimensional pieces to minimize the seam layout of the fireplace. Finally, the garden pavilion’s reflecting pool features custom precast concrete coping, also in our Sandy Hook color, to cap off a wonderful and serene terrace area.
