I know it may not look that way in the photo but the tower being built in Asbury park at 1101 Ocean Avenue is officially more than halfway up!

Even after the nor'easters and all, workers have been putting in some good old-fashioned elbow grease on the steel tower and they are really making some significant progress.

The building will include 130 luxury apartments and a boutique hotel with 54 rooms to bring together housing and commercial use.

"I think it's going to give Asbury Park another boost of reality of what we're going to become," said Sammy Boyd, a local Realtor. "Asbury Park is as good a getaway as the Hamptons."

APP.com has a video of what the building is envisioned to look like when completed in 2019!

PLUS, they also have a video to see what the Asbury Park Boardwalk looked like two decades ago!
