Tennessee Avenue Development

Authentic City Partners is among the developers involved in the Orange Loop, a three-block beachside section of Tennessee Avenue, New York Avenue and St. James Place that features a collection of restaurants, hotels and mixed-use buildings.

ATLANTIC CITY — Local development and property management group Authentic City Partners says it is continuing work on projects in the city’s Orange Loop during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Authentic City Partners is among the developers involved in a three-block beachside section of Tennessee Avenue, New York Avenue and St. James Place that features a collection of restaurants, hotels and mixed-use buildings.

Under construction is a 12-unit mixed-use building on New York Avenue called the Bywater, set to open this spring. The project is a renovation of a 100-year old building. It will have eight residential units and be the new home of Hayday Coffee, the Atlantic County Residents Outreach Association’s consignment store and ¡Anthus’ flagship New Jersey cannabis dispensary Be, according to a news release from ACP.

The previous Hayday Coffee location on Tennessee Avenue closed last June.

On the same block, work is underway on the Cardinal Restaurant and Hotel, set to open in spring 2021. ACP is working with Asbury Park developer Pat Fasano on the project. The restaurant will be the new home for father-and-son chefs Michael and Tom Brennan, who closed their Cardinal Bistro in Ventnor last May.

“We’re moving ahead with all of our previously scheduled projects and modifying how we work to ensure compliance with all governmental orders and the safety of our team, our community and our families,” ACP co-founder Zenith Shah said in the release. “We’ve been impressed by the City of Atlantic City’s ability to continue to support our development work even while employees work from home and make limited on-site inspections.”

ACP has been working to support local efforts to fight COVID-19 by sourcing personal protective equipment for health care workers; providing Hayday coffee beans and donating to the AtlantiCare Foundation; contributing to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Southern Branch; partnering with Little Water Distillery and the Hispanic Association of Atlantic County to provide free hand sanitizer to local families; and donating to the Community Foundation of South Jersey’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, according to the release.
