Proposals Sought for Redevelopment of Barker Circle Complex

On March 8, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) issued its first Request for Offers to Purchase (RFOTP) of 2017, seeking redevelopment proposals for the approximately 19.5-acre Barker Circle Complex.

Barker Circle

The Barker Circle Complex, located in Oceanport, includes five former barracks buildings, the Main Post Fire House and Kaplan Hall, seen here in the upper left along Saltzman Avenue/County Route 537.

In issuing the RFOTP, FMERA is seeking proposals for adaptive reuse of the historic buildings for uses including medium density residential, office/research & development, retail or other commercial uses, and institutional/civic uses at the former museum, known as Kaplan Hall. Consistent with the Fort Monmouth Reuse and Redevelopment Plan Amendment #6, FMERA will also accept proposals that do not include any residential uses, but instead include institutional or health-care related uses. These alternate uses can be in addition to, or in lieu of, the office/research & development and other commercial uses in the Barker Circle buildings, and alternate commercial uses at Kaplan Hall that complement the planned development at Barker Circle.

Responses to the RFOTP are due by noon on June 2, 2017.
