Fort Monmouth officially closed it’s doors in 2011 and now there are plans to build an exciting retail and residential community. Two thirds of the 89 acres will be retail space and the other third will feature 302 townhomes. The new Freedom Pointe will feature an ice-skating rink, jogging & bike trails, an open lawn area for concerts, shows and other seasonal events, a high-end playground with spray park for the kids, miniature golf, pop jets and bocce. Tenants for the retail space are already lining up. Work on the project will begin by the end of the year and the tentative date of completion is 2019.
