When legendary Ocean City businessman Howard S. Stainton built his department store as the anchor of Asbury Avenue, it was 1941. Throughout the years, the downtown building has gone through some dramatic transformations.
With a renovation of the first floor offering an array of retail stores called Stainton's Gallery of Shops, and the addition of 22 condominiums on the third and fourth floors, there was one last piece of the puzzle: the second floor.
Now, project developers Lester Argus and Brett Foxman are converting the second floor into professional office space.
