Levine Staller partner Ben Zeltner recently obtained City of Margate, NJ Planning Board approvals for a new restaurant, office and marina located on Amherst Avenue. Mr. Zeltner obtained variances for the project including front and side yard setbacks, signage style and size, as well as a variance for the number of parking spaces. The planning board also agreed to waive a traffic impact study. After the Planning Board granted the variances, Mr. Zeltner successfully defended those approvals in an appeal before Assignment Judge Julio L. Mendez. Judge Mendez concluded that the variances were supported by Margate City ordinances.
