Looks like th Singapore Motel is changing away from being a motel.
PUBLIC NOTICE PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on July 21, 2020 at 5:00 PM, a hearing will be conducted before the Zoning Board of the Borough of Wildwood Crest at the Municipal Building, 6101 Pacific Avenue, Wildwood Crest, NJ, on the application of the undersigned for preliminary and final site plan approval to convert the existing Singapore motel located at 507-15 East Orchid Road, Wildwood Crest, New Jersey to a multifamily residential structure. The project will include various improvements to the site including, without limitation, increasing the westerly two-story portion of the structure to three stories. Although the number of units will be reduced, the conversion of the structure from a motel to a multifamily structure requires variances for density, minimum unit size and off-street parking. Applicant also seeks variance relief relating to front yard setback, side yard setbacks, rear yard setback, lot coverage, building coverage, and front yard landscaping.
I still would rather see it renovated and modernized/retro-ized.
That is one motel that I am not sad to see go. I stayed there once when I made a reservation at the Ocean View. An hour before we got into Wildwood, the owner called and let me know that all reservations had been moved to the Singapore. It was so disgusting and run down. If I could afford a different place I would have left right then and there.
