The Reef Wins Multiple Awards as First Construction Phase Nears Completion

The Reef, Long Branch’s newest oceanview development located at 200 Ocean Blvd, will soon be ready to welcome its first residents, just in time to enjoy luxury summer living at the Shore.

Phase 1, comprising eight private townhomes that sold out quickly during pre-construction, is expected to be completed by mid-to-late Summer 2022. Phase 2, with eight more private townhomes and two community buildings, could be completed by the end of summer as well and is already 50% sold. The community buildings include two pools, a fitness center, a community center, and additional amenities.

The Reef is quickly making its name known in the local community, recently earning four awards at the Shore Builders Association of Central New Jersey’s 2022 FAME Awards, including Best Interior Merchandising for a Project 30 Units or Less, Best Architectural Project Design for a Project 30 Units or Less, Best Member Brochure, and Best Public Relations Piece on the partnership between builder and CMM Custom Homes CEO Christopher Amato and the Matalon family, owners of the Matalon Group.

“We’re extremely excited to bring The Reef to life this summer,” Amato said. “Navigating the current times with supply chain issues, closures, and keeping our crews safe and healthy made the first phases a moving target.”

CMM and the Matalon Group have been able to keep construction moving at a steady pace thanks to their strong relationships with vendors, while remaining committed to the craft of custom home building without compromise. All interior materials, cabinetry, and appliances are secured on site.

Each residence at The Reef has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a private two-car garage, private elevator, private rooftop deck, and panoramic ocean views. The residences are made for the way people want to live today, with 3,100 square feet of customizable living space lending room to a home office and/or home gym. The ocean views are protected, meaning the adjacent Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park is permanent and will never be developed upon.

“Peaceful and private are the words that come to mind,” said Samuel Matalon, co-proprietor of the Matalon Group. “You enter through a private garage and private elevator leading directly into your oceanview home. You’re within short walking distance to the beach and Pier Village, with a quiet retreat awaiting when you return.”

After Phase 1 and Phase 2 are introduced in 2022, the final Phase 3 will see the remaining 10 residences complete The Reef by Spring 2023. The developer will announce when the Phase 3 residences become available for sale. To learn more and schedule a tour, contact The Reef at (732) 508-7819 or visit
