Commercial Development



Liscio’s Bakery outgrew its original 35,000 square foot plant. In order to accommodate its growth plans, it purchased a 100,000 square foot industrial facility, which required significant renovation.


The building was originally constructed as a plastics plant in 1970, and later converted to coca processing by ADM.

The overarching goal of the business was to transform an obsolete facility into a modern plant compliant with international food processing standards that it would allow it to increase its market share.


Gutting and reconstruction was put on a fast track timeline to ensure the business would not be caught in a building transition during its busiest season.

While the interior demolition took place, we designed modifications to the exterior including new loading docks. As that work progressed, the Lighthouse team designed the bakery and office.

This new facility, now fully operational, is triple the size from Liscio’s previous plant. It has allowed them to meet their goals for growth and sustained success.



The goal of the redevelopment of the Seaport Pier on the north end of the North Wildwood Boardwalk was to add excitement and economic development to the Southern New Jersey shore community.


To design a multi-faceted entertainment venue that accommodated a variety of activities and crowd sizes. The project consisted of facilities in support of beach concerts, pier concerts and local talent entertaining those who were enjoying their summer at the Jersey shore.


Plans included two main stages; one facing the beach the other the pier, a restaurant/bar/café building that accommodates approximately 600 people and an open-air pizzeria. 

Completed in 2018, the Seaport Pier also includes an outdoor bar on the pier with an extension for the private pool with swim-up bar.

The facility also has a rooftop stage for local entertainers.



The building, approximately 230,000 square feet, is the aggregation of five historic buildings, including one real addition build in the early 20th century.  

The structure consists of three different types of construction (IBC type 2, 3 & 4) and a combination of high-rise and mid-rise construction.

The redevelopment project occurred in two phases.


This project required a phase I and II approach. 

It was required that we prepare the tenant areas for broker presentation to the prospective tenants and address historical, building code and life safety issues common in adaptive re-use projects.  

Phase I included the adaptive re-use of half the building, which comprised the new building section and systems for one tenant in both the high-rise and mid-rise portions of the building. 

Phase II included the balancing of the building and common area improvements in predominantly the third portion, which was the mid-rise section of the building.


Lighthouse Architecture (LA) was retained as Designer of Record for the Phase II work. 

This work completed included the interior demolition of the existing tenant, improvements to the common areas and the plans for new ??

We were able to provide the infrastructure that would accommodate all the needs of the building’s future occupants.
