The Atlantic City Ocean Club balcony doors will be screwed down

We have obtained a copy of a letter that was sent to all residents of Ocean Club condominiums in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday, February 25, 2022.

In short, at this time all residents of Ocean Club Condominiums are not permitted to use their balconies as structural assessments will be conducted.

Here are links to all of our recent coverage regarding balcony and garage issues.

We provide you with a full copy of the letter below. We’ve made some changes and removed the phone numbers, the email address at the bottom, and we’ve removed the name of the resident who provided us with the letter.

The City of Atlantic City ordered the balconies to be screwed down. Windows will be able to open three inches for ventilation.

Work begins this Monday, February 28, 2022. We spoke with several residents. They are not happy with this latest development.

Full details are included in the letter directly below.

This is a mass communication email sent to all residents.

Dear XXXXX XXXXX:

As we reported at Sunday’s board meeting, our attorney has been working with the city to resolve the balcony issue.


From Monday 28 February
and and throughout the next week the balcony doors are to be screwed down by the Association to the management of the town, but it will be done in such a way that the doors can be opened three inches for ventilation.

You must arrange to open your unit to the manager – if you have not already given them a key (which is required of all unit owners) or arrange access so the balcony can be closed, the City may take action against you or the Association will blow the lock off your unit in accordance with its easement rights in the main deed.

Below is a tentative schedule of balcony doors that are prohibited from being opened:

Concerns expressed at the council meeting about fire safety were directed to the fire marshal who advised that balconies are not considered exit points for fire safety so he did not object to screw them.

On Thursday and Friday, our engineer inspected the units whose owners are requesting occupancy certificates. If the engineer certifies that the ramps and any overhead concrete are safe, the City will emit the CO (assuming of course that other unrelated issues are handled by the unit owner).

We are also working to get permission to open the east facing balconies since they were clad in 2017. We will keep you posted on this issue. You will also soon see scaffolding going up to protect the sidewalks.

Truly,
