TINTON FALLS: The final piece of available Fort Monmouth property located in Tinton Falls is now up for sale.
At its October Board meeting, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) Board approved the issuance of requests for offers to purchase (RFOTPs) for the Pulse Power Building and Building 2719, located in the former fort's Tinton Falls Reuse Area.
The Pulse Power Building, also known as Building 2707, is a special purpose facility consisting of 15,690 square feet of administrative offices and 10,786 square feet of dry lab and testing space. The Fort Monmouth Reuse Plan Reuse Plan states that the building's should be redeveloped for office and/or research & development.
"To broaden the range of possible future uses, the Pulse Power building and its outbuildings will be offered for either office/R&D or an alternate commercial use consistent with or complementing the planned uses in the area, and will allow either reuse of the building or demolition and redevelopment of the parcel," according to FMERA.
Building 2719 consists of 6,574 square feet of administrative space and a 2,448 square-foot high-bay garage constructed in 2006. The building could be reused for commercial purposes.
Due to the construction of a new access drive running west to nearby Pearl Harbor Avenue, Building 2719 and Pulse Power could potentially be redeveloped as one project.
The property also includes Building 2704, a 50-year old, 6,226 square foot testing facility known as the Shake & Bake lab, which the Army used to test prototypes and is now slated for demolition.
FMERA plans to issue RFOTPs for the Pulse Power Building and Building 2719 before the end of the year. Additional scoring consideration will be given to proposers who offer to purchase and redevelop both properties.
