Walters Group Apartments Focuses on Resilient, Sustainable Coastal Projects
SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J., March 24, 2021 – Cornerstone at Seaside Heights, a 91-unit LEED® Platinum building developed by Walters Group Apartments, has been recognized as among the “Best Green Projects of 2020” by Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Journal, a leading industry trade publication. The redevelopment involved the tearing down of several aging buildings on the corner of Bay Boulevard and Hamilton Avenue to make way for an age- and income-restricted community.
Cornerstone at Seaside Heights is featured in the March 19th print issue of Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Journal. The “Best of 2020” is a juried competition of submissions and nominations from the publication’s readership.
“This honor underscores our long-term commitment to sustainability by creating developments that enhance the lives of residents and benefit the surrounding communities,” said Joe Del Duca, partner and director of affordable housing for Walters Group Apartments. “Our senior residents can take advantage of living in a healthy environment with ample amenities and access to many community resources.”
Cornerstone at Seaside Heights was awarded Platinum status, the highest LEED certification. The building earned points for features such as ENERGY STAR® appliances, walkability, water reduction, waste management and optimized energy efficiency performance.
The modern energy-efficient building offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartment homes which include high-end amenities such as upgraded interior finishes, kitchens with granite countertops and a full appliance package, in-unit washer and dryer, 24-hour emergency service, onsite management and maintenance. In addition, resident activities and events are offered through a social services coordinator. Cornerstone at Seaside Heights is open to adults (55+) who do not make more than 60 percent of the county’s median income.
