Kaplan Companies Cuts the Ribbon on High-End Rental Community in Toms River

“Camelot at Toms River” Showing Enormous Demand

June 14, 2023

TOMS RIVER, NJ (OCEAN)–Kaplan Companies officials joined local dignitaries on Tuesday, June 6 to mark the opening of the real estate developer’s  first luxury rental community in Ocean County.

Camelot at Toms River, at 100 Kaplan Court in the Seacourt Pavilion, features low-maintenance living with 128 luxury residences, a resort style pool with hydrotherapy, a doggie day spa, a tot lot, a bark park, electric charging stations, WiFi access in the clubhouse and a resident lounge, among its many amenities.

Jason Kaplan, president of Kaplan Companies, noted the family-run business has deep roots in Toms River; his father, Michael, graduated from Toms River High School in the 1950s. Among the family’s local real estate projects is the Seacourt Pavilion Shopping Center, built in the 1980s. Camelot at Toms River sits on land that was initially designed as “phase 2” of the mall.

“At one point, we envisioned this site would become a high-end convention center and a hotel, but the market demands changed,” Kaplan said. “But we loved the property and we knew it could be a real asset to the Toms River community, if we could just find the right use. Well, it may have taken 40 years or so, but we finally nailed it.”

Camelot at Toms River is ideal for young families who want to live in modern construction with many amenities while they save money to buy a house. The community is also a terrific alternative for older residents, attracted to maintainence-free living, who want to remain in Toms River, close to family and friends.

The development – near the Garden State Parkway and Routes 9 and 37, offers one- and two-bedroom apartments, featuring up to 1,540 square feet of living space, private garages and 24-hour maintainence among the many amenities.

“Camelot at Toms River encapsulates all of the most popular features of our other high-end communities across New Jersey and beyond,” Kaplan said. “We have taken the absolute best amenities, based on our residents’ feedback, and brought them all to Toms River.”

Marketing for Camelot of Toms River won “Community of the Year” from the Shore Builders Association of Central New Jersey, which took home a total of 12 awards at its 20th annual FAME awards recently.

Kaplan company officials and family joined with Toms River Mayor Maurice “Mo” B. Hill Jr. to cut the ceremonial ribbon.

“As an ongoing member of the Toms River community, my parents have always reminded me to find ways to be a good neighbor and give back,” Kaplan said, presenting a $1,000 donation to leaders of Hope Sheds Light, co-founder Arvo Prima and Anne Marie Baker.

Hope Sheds Light – based at the Presbyterian Church of Toms River – raises awareness about the impact of addiction, urging people to share personal experiences and offer strength, wisdom, hope and resources that lead to recovery.
