Petrucci Company, Inc. in the transaction, and Lollicup was represented by CBRE’s Mindy Lissner and David Gheriani. “We are pleased to have assisted Lollicup with their expansion to this well-located class A building,” said CBRE’s first vice president, David Gheriani. “This is a prime example of a company that is growing due to today's condi- tions, and we are proud to have assisted them in this development project.” 140 Meister Ave. was de- signed by Cerminara Ar- chitect and constructed by J.G. Petrucci’s in-house con- struction firm – Iron Hill ConstructionManagement the “Land Use Rules”), which serve as the zoning overlay for the Fort. FMERA intends to re-re- lease the RFOTP for this this gateway site later this year. “FMERAmaintains that the highest and best use of the site is as a vibrant, pedestrian- friendly development with residential and a combination of commercial, cultural, en- tertainment and retail uses,” said FMERA marketing & development manager Sarah Giberson . Background The redevelopment of Fort Monmouth is a multi-year reinvestment to repurpose the former military installa- tion which served as the US leader in satellite and telecom technology. The primary goal of FMERA’s Reuse and Rede- velopment Plan is to return the Fort to a vibrant environ- ment, create jobs, and catalyze economic growth in each of the three towns and the region. The plan strives to balance de- velopment with the protection and enhancement of natural resources, while also creating

an ecosystem complete with business, culture, and 21st century living. Prior to closure, the Fort had five million s/f of building area. Most of the buildings left behind are targeted for demolition. So far, the reuse and redevelopment has acti- vated one million square-feet of commercial space and over 200 residential units, along with civic and entertainment uses. Twenty parcels have been sold and sixteen parcels are currently under contract, in negotiation, or in the de- velopment pipeline. Several additional RFOTP releases are planned, including the McAfee Center, intended for technolo- gy and other commercial uses, and the 400 Area, an approxi- mately 80-acre parcel slated for a mixed-use development. FMERA is an independent state authority established to oversee the redevelopment of the site and the implementa- tion of the Fort’s Reuse Plan, which envisions specific re- investment that aligns with each community’s economic development goals.
