North Wildwood’s Coconut Cove nightclub has been demolished, and the owners plan to turn the bayfront property into homes, local officials said.
Mayor Patrick Rosenello said the land, on West Spruce Avenue, has been subdivided into 10 buildable lots.
“They will be either single-family (houses) or duplexes,” he said. “And I think every lot has a boat slip.”
Rosenello said Coconut Cove has been closed for the last several years, since about 2013. Before the restaurant was converted to Coconut Cove in 2011, the complex was called Sunset Bay.
The liquor license from the club has been transferred to Joe Joe’s Place, a pizza restaurant on Olde New Jersey Avenue “in the heart of the Anglesea entertainment district,” the mayor added.
Coconut Cove was the subject noise complaints from neighbors shortly after it opened in 2011.
