At its February meeting, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) Board approved the issuance of a Request for Offers to Purchase (RFOTP) for the former Fort Monmouth Bowling Center located at the corner of Saltzman and Wilson Avenues in Eatontown. The Bowling Center, also known as Building 689, is an approximately 17,600-square-foot, 20-lane bowling alley. Potential purchasers have expressed interest to FMERA staff in acquiring and renovating the property, and in potentially expanding it for recreation, entertainment and related uses.
“The redevelopment of the Bowling Center will be a vital part of the live-work-play community developing at Fort Monmouth,” said FMERA Senior Marketing & Development Officer Sarah Giberson. “We’re eager to add to the Fort’s growing list of amenities.”
The RFOTP will give the option of proposing to purchase the improvements and ground lease the land, rather than purchasing both the land and the improvements.
Note: FMERA Board action is subject to a ten (10) day veto period by the Governor.
