NAI Mertz Marketing Former Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven, NJ
—Development Opportunity Sits in the Heart of Long Beach Island’s Thriving Business District—
NAI Mertz, a leading full-service commercial real estate firm serving southern New Jersey and greater Philadelphia, is serving as the exclusive sales agent for the 32,590-square-foot former Surflight Theatre located at 201 Engleside Avenue in Beach Haven, New Jersey. Fred Meyer, SIOR, Vice President/Director of Corporate Services, and Lisa Madzin, Vice President, are exclusively representing this assignment.
“The Surflight Theatre has been the Broadway at the Beach for Long Beach Island residents and vacationers since the 1960s when the original facility was constructed,” said Meyer. “This is an exciting opportunity for a buyer to resume the operations of the facility or to reposition the building,” he added.
Located in the heart of Long Beach Island’s business district, which is host to over 100,000 visitors each summer, the Surflight Theatre property includes a 12,314-square-foot theatre, 10,980-square-foot cast house, 5,490-square-foot retail/rehearsal area, and a 3,806-square-foot scenery shop. The theatre features a 450-sloped seating area, 30’ clear ceiling heights in the stage area, a sound tech room in the mezzanine, concession stand, lobby, box office, restrooms and offices.
Built in 1985, the property is located within the Beach Haven business district, which includes several hotels and bed and breakfast establishments, an amusement park, water park, retail shops, and numerous restaurants and eateries.
“Beach Haven is very popular vacation destination and home to a year-round tight-knit community, and this property offers an amazing opportunity for developers,” added Madzin.
