Pier Village in Long Branch set for next phase

A new phase of development is about to begin at the posh Pier Village in Long Branch.

The newest phase will focus on families and young children. The proposed 45,000 square foot expansion will include attractions, educational centers and an expanded boardwalk.

People have flocked to the area in recent years after redevelopment efforts cleaned up the streets. Long Brach resident Rich Rose said, "I think it is fabulous, everything they've done here has been wonderful."Development is expected to begin sometime next year.
