Nearly 300 acres in Monmouth County are a big step closer to being transformed into a Hollywood-style production studio, as Netflix has announced itself as the top bid for a sprawling tract at the shuttered Fort Monmouth property.
The New York Times was first to report the development on Wednesday, which a Netflix spokesperson then confirmed to New Jersey 101.5.
"While there is still work to be done with the Economic Development Authority and local leadership to finalize the deal, we are thrilled that FMERA's preferred choice for the Fort Monmouth development project is our proposal for a state-of-the-art production complex,” according to a written statement.
“If our plans are approved, we hope to build a facility that will create significant economic impact and job growth for New Jersey, a state loaded with creative talent and technical expertise,” the Netflix spokesperson continued.
Back in June, four bids were accepted by the redevelopment panel.
In late September, at least one of the other bidders said there had been no feedback.
Extell Acquisitions — an arm of New York-based real estate company, Extell Development — recently shared some of its own mixed-use proposal for the site at the decommissioned base.
Aside from Netflix, the other three bidders all confirmed a multi-use approach in their visions.
Mega Parcel Development previously shared plans online for a five-district site spanning nearly 300 acres — including two residential neighborhoods, one each in the Eatontown and Oceanport sections of the property.
RDR Partners reportedly has pitched three districts, according to the Asbury Park Press, with residential units, as well as space for tech and innovation companies and retail, plus movie and film production companies.
Also in recent weeks, a grassroots campaign was launched against the now officially top bid.
“No 2 Netflix” began public efforts in September against the streaming giant’s submitted bid to use the entire mega-parcel as Netflix's second-largest production facility behind a New Mexico property, as previously reported.
The next few months include a due diligence period, an examining of the Fort and finalizing economic terms, according to Netflix.
A “state-of-the-art production studio” has been the extent of details shared by the streaming giant for the land in Oceanport and Eatontown, should the deal become finalized “in the next few months, with a signed sale agreement.”
If a deal is signed, there would also be an “additional period of due diligence along with various state, county and local approvals.”
The U.S. Army base closed in September 2011 and many buildings on the site have fallen into disrepair.
A spokesperson for FMERA also confirmed that the top scoring bidder was contacted, saying the process could take "several months."
"FMERA can confirm that it has identified and contacted the highest scoring proposer for the Mega Parcel; however, FMERA will make no further representations relative to the potential purchase of property until such time as the staff is prepared to recommend the approval of a fully negotiated Purchase and Sale Agreement and Redevelopment Agreement to the FMERA Board."
"FMERA remains excited about the future of the MEGA parcel and is eager to see the inevitable economic impact that will result from its future redevelopment," a written statement also said.

Retail demand across the U.S. reflected brick-and-mortar resiliency through 2022, with healthy leasing driving down vacancies in the final months of the year. That’s according to Levin Management Corp.‘s latest transactional activity, released Monday.
The North Plainfield-based commercial real estate services firm said it hit a new annual record, closing more than 1.4 million square feet in new leases, renewals and extensions, and license agreements.
“Industry momentum — and our talented leasing team — propelled LMC to its strongest-ever leasing performance portfoliowide in 2022, following a record year in 2021,” LMC CEO Matthew Harding said. “This significant accomplishment coincided with our company’s milestone 70th year in business.”
The trending reflects the viability of brick-and-mortar retail overall, and Harding noted LMC has entered 2023 with a robust transactional pipeline. He expects strong performance to continue as retailers remain focused on responding to shifting consumer priorities and expectations.
Harding also said this positive outlook prevails despite ongoing economic headwinds, inflation and supply chain issues.
LMC’s activity shows continued expansion among national brands and franchisees — including discount retail, entertainment concepts, pharmacies and home furnishings stores. Fast-casual restaurants, personal care and fitness concepts also are active on the growth front. At the same time, momentum among independent retailers speaks to an influx of startups as well as established concepts expanding operations.
The firm’s 2022 deal highlights reflect this movement, including commitments with a combination Family Dollar/Dollar Tree (South Plainfield), CVS (Manasquan), children’s play concept Catch Air (Jersey City), Fortunoff Backyard Store (Bridgewater), Mattress Warehouse (North Brunswick), SETS Hybrid Training (Old Bridge) and two leases with Jersey Mike’s Subs (Delran and Hicksville, New York).
Grocery also showed its dominance in 2022. LMC in recent months negotiated two expansions with ShopRite (in Delran and Watchung), lease extensions with grocery anchors in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and also arranged a new lease with Tropical Supermarket in South Plainfield.
Retailers continue to open more stores than they close, an achievement on course to continue. To that end, LMC reported 55 new store openings within its leasing and management portfolio in 2022, including Ulta Beauty in Woodbridge and the Goodwill Store in Hamilton Township.
Alongside this transactional momentum, LMC continued to expand its management portfolio in 2022, with a record 1.1 million square feet added for new clients.
This included securing a multiproperty assignment encompassing two New Jersey shopping centers (Eatontown Plaza in Eatontown and Edison Crossroads in Edison) and a 29-property triple-net-leased portfolio. Additionally, the firm was retained to exclusively manage a 25-property portfolio of multitenant and net-leased assets primarily located on Long Island and in New York City. And, in Old Bridge, LMC became managing agent for the Shoppes at Old Bridge.
Reflecting expanded diversity within its portfolio, LMC also assumed the role of managing agent for 222 Bridge Plaza South, an office building in Fort Lee. And, on the industrial front, the firm’s construction management team is spearheading the development of two speculative warehouse buildings. Totaling approximately 108,000 square feet, they are additions at Rutgers Industrial Center in Piscataway, where LMC serves as longtime asset manager.
To support this business growth, LMC focused on building its internal resources, including several strategic promotions and new hires within its executive leadership, leasing and corporate administration teams. The firm also was well-recognized for its accomplishments, with multiple companywide and individual accolades during the year.
“It’s an exciting time at Levin Management,” Harding said. “2022 proved to be another banner year for our company in terms of both business growth and leasing volume. LMC’s new hires and organizational advancements will uphold and strengthen our services as we work to deliver the highest-quality expertise to new and existing clients.”
Addition of Globalcycle and Global Remediation Services advances expansion into highly regulated New England market
The Morristown-based provider of environmental services for businesses and communities said that acquiring these regional leaders in wastewater treatment, recycling and environmental services fast-tracks its expansion into the highly regulated New England market and advances the company’s leadership in sustainable materials management.
The acquisitions also amplify Covanta’s ability to provide more last-mile sustainability solutions to remove unwanted byproducts and refuse and transform them into value-based materials.
These latest additions bring Covanta’s tally of acquisitions to seven under the direction of EQT Infrastructure, as it comes on the heels of the recent purchases of SGS Recovery, Frontier Fibers and Buffalo Fuel Corp., Miller Environmental Transfer and Biologic Environmental Services and Waste Solutions.
“Covanta is making it possible for companies to meet the challenges of full-cycle sustainability,” Azeez Mohammed, president and CEO at Covanta, stated. “In order to achieve full-cycle sustainability, companies must transform their byproducts using advanced sustainable solutions that break down unwanted byproducts into carbon-negative materials that are better for the environment. Adding Globalcycle’s and Global Remediation Services’ capabilities to our lineup further delivers that promise into practice.”
The two new acquisitions underscore critical strategic synergies that have marked Covanta’s recent purchases with their proximity to its waste-to-energy facilities in Massachusetts and Connecticut:
Globalcycle is holding a unique designation as the only fully permitted industrial commercial wastewater treatment and recycling plant in Massachusetts. Globalcycle recycles wastewater into a reusable water source for industrial applications. The company manages over 15 million gallons of wastewater per year for a broad spectrum of customers, including industrial manufacturers, construction companies and retailers.
Global Remediation Services is an environmental service business that operates along the East Coast. Its offerings span site remediation, logistics and disposal, emergency response, marine services and solar field development.
One of my favorite birthday-related sayings is “Love the giver more than the gift.” Celebrating another trip around the sun is truly about who you spend it with and not what is wrapped with festive paper. Birthdays are a chance to celebrate, commemorate past years, look forward to what’s to come and connect with family and friends. It’s a day to receive phone calls, text messages, emails, Facebook posts, packages on your doorstep and a whole lot of laughter and love.For Elizabeth Oliver, being wrapped in the ar...
One of my favorite birthday-related sayings is “Love the giver more than the gift.” Celebrating another trip around the sun is truly about who you spend it with and not what is wrapped with festive paper. Birthdays are a chance to celebrate, commemorate past years, look forward to what’s to come and connect with family and friends. It’s a day to receive phone calls, text messages, emails, Facebook posts, packages on your doorstep and a whole lot of laughter and love.
For Elizabeth Oliver, being wrapped in the arms of her childhood chums was the most memorable way to welcome and embrace the big 5-0. Chilmark kids including Michael Broderick, Hope Murphy MacLeod, Keith Fenner, Max Hart and more gathered to cheer her on as she made her way across that line that marks the completion of half-century. Topped with a purple tiara, the immeasurably thoughtful mom of four was celebrated so much that she will be talking about it for years to come.
A most noteworthy part of Liz’s birthday celebration was dear friend Max Hart’s willingness to travel from the place he now calls home in Madison, N.J. just to round out the Chilmark Childhood Chums Club. (I made that up, but it’s fitting.) He was there to cheer her on as she blew out 50 candles.
Another noteworthy birthday taking place this week is that of Isabella Flanders Thorpe. Bella, daughter of Julie Flanders and Bart Thorpe, transitioned from teenager to twenties. I have had the pleasure of watching her grow up over these past two decades alongside my own teen who will soon turn twenty himself. I look forward to watching her progress through her twenties with grace, laughter, kindness, success and countless comical moments.
Jan. 30 marks the day great-grandmother Elizabeth (Bette) Mayhew Flanders Carroll would have turned one hundred years old. According to the historical calendar powered by Google, it was a Tuesday that Gladys and Robert Flanders welcomed her to the world. Warren G. Harding was president and it also seems that Thomas Hart Benton may have created his painting Chilmark in 1923.
We will celebrate with her classic tar paper cake although, over the years, I’ve managed to make the cake part a little less dry. If she were still with us, I am not certain if she would be pleased by that or not. So, don’t tell.
After earning her bachelor of science degree in nursing from the School of Nursing and Health Sciences at Simmons College, Augusta Dillon — daughter of Billy Dillon and Meredith Dillon — went on to earn a Vineyard Vision Fellowship. The fellowship is awarded to those who commit themselves to the Island community and Augusta is doing just that. The fellowship was side by side with her as she made her way through a year of rigorous additional nursing training. A few short weeks ago, she received her white coat from Simmons College. She will join the staff of Martha’s Vineyard Hospital as a nurse practitioner. Congratulations.
Not only is it budget season in town but the end of January is also the time that town departments are preparing their contributions to the annual Chilmark town report. Like many of you, I always throughly enjoyed Basil Welch’s write-up about the cemetery department. He typically wrapped up with something along the lines of, “Things are quiet at Abel’s Hill.”
When Michelle Lease of New Vernon decided to take her online business to a new level, she quickly filled up the Ginger Jar in Harding Township with a curated collection of classic home décor. “I felt the need for a Morris County retailer offering well-priced gifts and decorative items, and I especially have a thing for blue and white,” she says.The shop, a circa-1745 farmhouse located on the Country Mile between Berna...
When Michelle Lease of New Vernon decided to take her online business to a new level, she quickly filled up the Ginger Jar in Harding Township with a curated collection of classic home décor. “I felt the need for a Morris County retailer offering well-priced gifts and decorative items, and I especially have a thing for blue and white,” she says.
The shop, a circa-1745 farmhouse located on the Country Mile between Bernardsville and Morristown, opened in March 2022 and quickly became a go-to for hostess gifts, serveware, Chinoiserie vases, tote bags, jewelry and equestrian-themed items.
The Ginger Jar, decorated in preppy navy blue, white and Kelly green, also sells an abundance of notepads personalized with zip codes of surrounding towns, as well as stationery customized with names of local schools. Needlepoint throw pillows coax a smile with clever comments like, “I don’t repeat gossip, so listen carefully,” and, “This is why we can’t have nice things.”
Lease’s new and vintage merchandise fills most of the store, with sister business Le Petite Monogram Shop, owned by Elke Spoor, occupying an adjacent space. The newest member of the staff is mascot Rose, a yellow Labrador puppy who greets shoppers. As an added attraction, the popular Candy Store of Harding maintains its longtime spot toward the back of the building. Lease says, “A bonus to our customers is visiting the candy shop for favorites like sea-salt caramels.”
No stranger to the business world, Lease began her retail career at the tender age of 15 selling party dresses. Later, she worked as a marketing and PR consultant before opening her own online business, the Paper Cottage, which captured national attention when it was featured in a Chase Card television commercial in 2013. More recently, she operated the Nantucket Collection, an online venture that sold coastal-style décor and gifts.
Although some entrepreneurs might shy away from opening a new location these days, Lease welcomed the opportunity. “I live just around the corner, found this charming space, and had existing relationships with fabulous vendors, so it seemed like the right time to pull the trigger and open my first shop,” she says. “My head was full of fun ideas—I just needed to download them.”
“It’s been a long time coming, but I’m thrilled to finally have my own brick-and-mortar location. The Ginger Jar is a happy gathering place that embodies all the things I love.”
The Ginger Jar, 1007 Mt. Kemble Road, Harding Township; 917-640-1484.
