BELMAR, NJ — The borough will celebrate the completion of the new Taylor Pavilion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 1.

Mayor Matthew Doherty will be joined by three members of New Jersey’s Congressional Delegation — Sens. Robert Menendez and Cory Booker, and Rep. Frank Pallone, 6th Dist., for the celebratory event, marking a major milestone in Belmar’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy. During that epic storm in 2012, the borough’s boardwalk was destroyed, including both the Taylor Pavilion at Fifth Avenue and the Howard Rowland Public Safety Pavilion at 10th Avenue.

After the ribbon-cutting, the pavilion will host “A Taste of Belmar” reception, featuring culinary favorites from a variety of borough restaurants, and live music by the Danny White Band.

The event is free and open to the public.  

The Taylor Pavilion is a 6,800-square-foot facility that houses Belmar’s beachfront operations, event and meeting space, and an oceanfront concession. Opening later this month will be the Cruz Bay Café, which will be operated by Merri-Makers of Edison, the winning bidder to lease the concession space.

In January 2016, the Borough Council awarded a $5.45 million contract to Epic Construction to rebuild both boardwalk pavilions. The Piscataway-based company also constructed Belmar’s boardwalk in 2013 — the first major infrastructure project to commence at the Jersey Shore in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

The buildings have been 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), according to the borough. They also meet Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility standards.
