As redevelopment plans continue to evolve for downtown Toms River, one company has proposed a huge makeover for our county seat.

Back in April, we told you about a proposal that would move the Water Street Post Office up Hooper Avenue, making way for apartments on the site.

Today, the Asbury Park Press is elaborating on an additional plan that could see hundreds of apartments added to the waterfront area.

The plan calls for parking lots on both Irons Street and Water Street to be developed into apartments, restaurants, and retail space.

It's an ambitious plan, aimed at not only encouraging people to spend more free time in downtown Toms River, but to also live downtown.

Nothing is set in stone yet, the APP story notes that the resolution gives the Township of Toms River 180 days to negotiate exclusively with Capodagli Property Co.
