Local Landmark Antique Emporium Converted Into Condos, Opens Up Exclusive Living Opportunities In Point Pleasant Beach

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, NJ, January 29, 2014 – Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate’s Bay Head office manager Peter Zanowic is pleased to update the community on the Emporium at the Beach condos in Point Pleasant Beach. Located in the heart of downtown on the corner of Bay and Trenton avenues, the landmark property, formerly known as Antique Emporium, is being developed by Roman Barsky and Vincent Palmieri. 

The Emporium at the Beach condos will feature 12 units, priced from $399,000. Each spacious two-bedroom condo comes equipped with two full baths, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, decorative trim moldings and Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring. One parking space is included in the purchase price and, as a rare bonus feature, the building will offer residents a shared rooftop terrace to be used exclusively by the condo owners.

“The transformation of this landmark building is evidence of the real estate evolution taking place in beautiful Point Pleasant Beach,” said Peter Zanowic, manager of Gloria Nilson’s Bay Head office. “The distinguishable character of the Emporium at the Beach facade will be preserved and we hope to see it stay that way for many years to come as it welcomes new residents.”

“I wanted to get across to homebuyers that you can play up the history of this charming building whether you’re 30 or 60 years old,” said Mary Catherine, principal of MCM Design. “Once you walk through the lobby of Emporium at the Beach, I want it to feel like home.”

A grand opening will take place on February 9th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The former owner of the Antique Emporium, Clara Johnson, sold the property to Roman Barsky and Vincent Palmieri on December 31, 2012. The buyers were represented by Gloria Nilson’s Peter Zanowic. Mrs. Johnson and her family opened the popular antique store in 1981 after buying out the Osborne family who had been operating a furniture business in the space.

Who cares about more condos? Where is the antique business now? They had good stuff from many vendors.

Martin, the antique shop is still there. Turns out the new condos are located in the attic of the building which wasn't used by the emporium operator. Lots of preservation work went into this conversion project.
