Real estate company is developing office property — for its own HQ

A real estate company is developing a new office property — to serve as its headquarters, it announced Friday.

Bennett Cos. said the property at 51 Main St. in Holmdel will be a custom-designed, state-of-the-art, two-story building with amenities including a conference room and drafting room on the interior, and electric vehicle charging stations, a detached garage and more on the exterior.

“Many boutique real estate companies announce new office developments, but not many can say that it will also serve as their new headquarters,” CEO Tyler Bennett said in a prepared statement. “We’re happy to be in this category. Bennett Development, an affiliated company that develops multifamily and commercial buildings, will manage this project.

“This project marks the first office development for the company.”

Bennett said he hopes to hire additional employees in the wake of the announcement.

“It was time to stop leasing space and practice what we preach, developing and owning real estate,” he said. “We will be seeking new members to join our amazing team, and look forward to showcasing this amazing project.”

The building is slated for completion in the summer or fall of 2022.
