“The revised Request for Offers to Purchase for this parcel was drafted with the Fort Monmouth Reuse and Redevelopment Plan’s vision in mind,” FMERA Executive Director Bruce Steadman said.
“However, as a result of the implications of recent market shifts, specifically in retail, we expect to be more flexible on the mix of commercial uses permitted. All bidders will be required to construct 302 residential units as a part of the project,” he said.
The redevelopment of Fort Monmouth is a multi-year reinvestment to repurpose the former military installation. Prior to its closure, the fort had approximately five million square feet of building area. Most of the buildings left behind are targeted for demolition.
So far, the reuse and redevelopment has activated one million square feet of commercial space and more than 200 residential units, along with civic and entertainment uses. Twenty parcels have been sold and 16 parcels are under contract, in negotiation, or in the development pipeline. Visit www.fortmonmouthnj.com for more information.
