The city's redevelopment officials have been granted more time to negotiate with the developer of a proposed beer garden for the corner of Second Avenue and Broadway in Long Branch.

The Long Branch Council unanimously passed a resolution during its Tuesday night meet granting a 120-day extension to negotiating period between the city's redevelopment committee and the developer, Second Avenue Warehouse LLC. 

"Second Avenue Warehouse LLC has made progress toward the implementation of the project," the resolution states. "The redevelopment committee has advised that it believes the parties have made progress with respect to refinement of the project concept and toward the negotiation of a redevelopment agreement."

The original plan presented to council earlier this year will likely be changed to suit the city's requests and will be presented to the council once again before it goes before the Long Branch Planning Board for final approval. 

Project Principal Preston Casertano said WhiteChapel, the proposed name of the business, would be the first beer garden on the Jersey Shore, and the fourth in the state with others located in Hoboken and Jersey City.

Casertano said the 3-story building on Second Avenue would be deconstructed to one floor and that a courtyard would be built in its place.

Or, perhaps the second* beer Garden on the Jersey Shore, if they're lucky... http://www.nj.com/monmouth/index.ssf/2013/12/asbury_park_beer_gardens_construction_begins_after_final_plans_approved.html
