Looking for a great townhome in unbelievable condition, updated look, neutral colors, plenty of space, and priced perfect??? I just listed a townhome in Society Hill, a townhome complex located in Old Bridge, NJ. 117 Whilshire Court in Old Bridge, NJ is listed for $299,000 and has so much to offer.
Initially, Old Bridge Township was made up of farms and the population grew slowly. In 1880, the population was 1,662 and in 1950 it had reached only 7,365. Then the building boom started and farms gave way to developments. In 1960, the population was 22,772 and that was only the beginning. The 1980 census sited 51,406 people and even that was questioned because areas of the Township have post offices bearing the names of other communities in the area. Today, the Township population is estimated to be 60,000 and continued growth is forecasted. Of the Township's 38.3 square miles, approximately one third is developed.
Hundreds of Thousands of people flock to the Jersey Shore each summer. The shore is a healthy, happy and pleasant place to be during the hot and humid weather. From an historical perspective it is evident that the Old Bridge waterfront has been a site of considerable commercial and recreational activity ever since the area was first inhabited by the Lenni Lenape. Much of this activity was directly attributed to the flora and fauna, natural bathing beaches, and access to the major navigational routes. A combination of the detrimental effects of water pollution on existing bayshore flora and fauna, storm damage and resultant beach erosion and building destruction, unsightly filling of the water's edge in some locations, and a general neglect of this valuable asset has led to a deterioration of the bayfront area.
During the past decade, the Township of Old Bridge initiated efforts to reverse this trend. Forty-seven acres of waterfront land were acquired and the first phase of the Laurence Harbor Park was developed. Additional plans for groins, erosion control and recreational facilities were also initiated. Hopefully, future historians will be able to look back with satisfaction and pride to the 1980's as a decade of renaissance for the Old Bridge waterfront. Significantly, the State of New Jersey had established a policy of upgrading and enhancing the State's waterways in the 1980's. This policy evolved through continued efforts in planning and regulating development in the coastal area which culminated in a Presidential directive that 1980 be designated as "The Year of the Coast".
In 1995, as part of the Shore Protection Beach revitalization project, two new groins (jetties) were built off the Laurence Harbor beachfront and the entire beach was replenished with new sand. A New Jersey Shore Protection grant of $2,100,000 was provided for the project. In 1998, the Middlesex County Park Commission leased the shorefront from the Township and planned the development of a major waterfront park. In March 1999, the State Department of Environmental Protection awarded the Township with a $300,000 grant to repair the Laurence Harbor Beach groin (jetty). The award was presented to the Township through the office of the DEP Administrator, Bernard Moore, longtime Chief of the Bureau of Coastal Engineering. Since the old groin was already included in the County's plan for improvements, the $300,000 grant will be used for additional site work and recreational amenities.
