Undisclosed Federal Agency Could Bring Jobs to Fort Property

Redevelopers may vote to approve initial stages of lease process which could generate local jobs.

It's still a bit of a mystery but apparently an unnamed federal agency may be setting its sights on vacant space at Fort Monmouth. 

If all goes as planned, this week redevelopers will kick off a lease process with the US General Services Administration (GSA) to locate a federal agency at building 2525, a 86,000 square-foot office building located in the Tinton Falls section of Fort Monmouth. GSA is responsible for meeting the space requirements of federal agencies.

Bruce Steadman, executive director of t (FMERA), would not give any information about what federal agency would eventually locate at the site since it is part of confidential real estate negotiations. He did say, however, that the lease could generate "quite a few jobs." 

FMERA will meet Thurs. Nov. 10 at the Eatontown Municipal Building at 7 pm. The public is invited.

Well now we are cooking with fire! All along I have maintained that government agencies should be relocated into the existing fort thus saving the taxpayer money that these agencies spend for rent in their present location.

Somebody wake up Frank Pallone and let him know what is going on!

It is about time maybe they will listen to the people we need jobs

Guess the negotiations broke down with the "mystery" agency. Was this perhaps the VA IT contracting group that is already on Industrial Way? If so, then it won't mean hundreds of additional jobs, since they have already expanded and will be merely relocating to cheaper, more appropriate space. Will CommVault also be getting Building 2525 as part of their deal?
