The former Beach Theatre in Cape May New Jersey, could become the site of an ambitious hotel project that seeks to revive the atmosphere of a bygone era. Cape May City Council last week heard plans from developer Eustace Mita, and founder of the Icona Resorts brand, which already has luxury projects in Avalon, Diamond Beach and a smaller location in Cape May. Mita has partnered with DAS Architects to develop a plan for a seven-story, 168-room hotel that would cover the area from Stockton Place to Gurney Street. The site not only includes the property of the Beach Theatre, which was built in 1950 and demolished in 2011, but also several storefronts along Beach Avenue and Gurney Street. The project will cost in the range of $100 million with plans to file a formal application in the next 60 days. The project would include a rooftop pool and 268 parking spaces contained on four interior levels. Other features would include ground-floor retail, restaurants, cafés and a ballroom.
