 ATLANTIC CITY — An eight-unit development project is spurring renewed interest in the Southeast Inlet.

Just steps from the Historic Absecon Lighthouse, developer Keith Groff is building Lighthouse Row, a four-five bedroom home community fully solar powered.

“This is just the beginning of an effort to bring families back to this neighborhood, which is full of potential,” said Groff. “This started with just an idea and dream a few years ago, and here we are.”

Mayor Marty Small Sr., Groff, Atlantic City Planning Director Jacques Howard and At-large Council member Stephanie Marshall gathered at the development site located at 12 S. New Hampshire Avenue on Tuesday, March 19, for a walk-through and news conference. (To see video from the news conference, watch it on the City of Atlantic City's Facebook page.)

“Investor confidence is at an all-time high in the great City of Atlantic City, and this is just the first step,” Mayor Small said in a prepared statement. “Before we know it, much of the vacant parcels in this area, and throughout Atlantic City, will be filled.”

The project will feature a new community with three full bathrooms, two car garages and each unit will have views that overlook the ocean, the lighthouse, and the city skyline.

“This project will no doubt set the tone for more like it to come,” said Howard. “We’ve had the pleasure of reviewing many development plans that will transform this area as we continue to see developers look to create opportunities for homeownership and occupancy.”

Groff anticipates Lighthouse Row being completed in late summer or early fall of 2024.

“Anything the Small administration can do for our investors, we’ll be at the ready," said the Mayor. "and we thank Keith Groff for believing in this city.”
