OCEANPORT - From the rooftop of Russel Hall, TetherView CEO Michael Abboud has an impressive view of the parade grounds on Fort Monmouth.
But instead of marching bands, he's treated to the daily foraging routines of the deer that conven on the grounds ever since the U.S. Army shuttered the fort in 2011.
Abboud welcomes the temporary distraction from his colossal task of moving his business into the former Army headquarters.
"We want to be the pioneers of bringing the fort back," said Abboud. "It (the fort) will be a critical part of Monmouth County."
With progress toward its goal of creating a technology hub on the Fort already underway, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) sold the Russel Hall parcel to private cloud computing company TetherView on June 23, 2017. The company, which moved to Fort Monmouth from Staten Island, NY, has been subleasing the 42,300-square-foot Russel Hall building since January 2016.
OCEANPORT – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and County Veterans Services Office have announced the opening of a satellite Veterans’ Connection office at Fort Monmouth. A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on April 5 at Russell Hall in Oceanport to celebrate the opening.
TetherView Properties LLC, an information-technology company with locations in West Long Branch, Edison and Staten Island, will move its headquarters to the former army base, following the closing of a $1.313 million deal to purchase the building that once served as the U.S. Army headquarters there.
