Taylor Pavilion - Ribbon Cutting
Monday, May 1, 2017
5th Avenue & Boardwalk
Belmar, NJ 07719
The Taylor Pavilion is a 6,800 square foot facility that houses Belmar’s beachfront operations, event and meeting space and an Christian Dior Bags oceanfront concession. Merri-Makers of Edison, NJ won the lease for the space in March of 2017 via public auction and will operate “Cruz Bay Café” starting in May 2017. The previous Taylor Pavilion was decimated by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
In January 2016, Belmar Mayor and Council awarded a $5.45 million dollar contract to Epic Construction of Piscataway, NJ for both the Taylor Pavilion and the Howard Rowland Public Safety Pavilion at 10th Avenue. Epic Construction also constructed Belmar’s boardwalk in 2013 which was the first major infrastructure project to commence at the Jersey Shore in response to Superstorm Sandy.
The buildings are constructed to V-Zone construction standards utilizing concrete filled steel piles and are at an elevation of BFE +3 (approximately five feet above the existing boardwalk). The new buildings are fully ADA accessible and built to current codes and standards.
