Construction of the 150-room Marriott Residence Inn & Suites on 61st Street bayside has reached a standstill following a dispute between the project’s developers and the general contractor.
Jeff Thaler, Atlantic Planning Development and Design LLC managing director of development, who presented preliminary site plans to the Ocean City Planning and Zoning Commission in February 2014, said it is unclear when the issue would be resolved.
“Work is stopped until they come to an agreement,” he said.
The property is being developed by the Inns of Ocean City LLC, which is in the midst of sorting out details with Berlin-based general contractor Sens Mechanical Inc.
“The bonding company is involved,” he said. “They have to decide if they want to bring the general contractor back.”
