Scaffolding and construction barriers at the new building being erected at 2979 Ocean Avenue at Avenue Z are expected to be removed this week, as the edifice nears completion.
The three-story mixed-use property will include five retail units on the first floor, and eight apartments on the two top floors. It previously was occupied by the John J. Healey Funeral Home, which served the area for several decades. According to a superintendent at the site, no units have been rented yet. There also appears to be several weeks worth of work to be done inside the building before it is complete.
ZHL Group is the contractor on the site and Maximillion Realty is overseeing the commercial rentals.
