Work on Oceanport's Village Center to Break Ground Monday

The long-awaited project will bring retail, office and residential space to the borough's downtown.

At long last, changes are coming to Oceanport's downtown business district.

The developer of the borough's Village Center, which will include about 38,000 square feet of retail and office space, will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, Aug. 13.

The 4 p.m. ceremony at the corner of East Main Street and Port au Peck Avenue signals the start of construction on the first commercial project in Oceanport's downtown in a number of years, according to the borough's administrator, Kim Jungfer.

The 4.7-acre site was purchased from the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority and sits adjacent to Maria Gatta Community Park, said Jungfer.

She said the bottom level of the building would be targeted as retail space and the second and "partial third floor" would hold office and residential apartment space.

"This will help enhance our downtown area," said Jungfer.
