Woodmont, Jingoli celebrate groundbreaking of warehouse property in South Amboy

Ground-up project to bring Class A warehouse space to redevelopment zone

Woodmont Industrial Partners and Joseph Jingoli & Son Inc. held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday in South Amboy at a 22-acre parcel that will comprise 152,100 square feet of Class A warehouse space at completion.

Located at 111 Main St. in the Broadway/Main Street redevelopment zone, in addition to ample square footage, the site’s development will include 22 dock doors, with an additional 22 knock-out doors available if desired by a tenant; abundant trailer and car parking; and a 36-foot clear height.

“The development at 111 Main St. will benefit South Amboy both economically and socially for years to come,” Mayor Fred Henry said. “We’re thankful to have Woodmont and Jingoli involved in the revitalization of this area of the city. We look forward to the redevelopment generating quality union jobs and providing necessary environmental restoration to the site.”

“It’s been a pleasure working with the city of South Amboy, which continues to demonstrate the importance of a forward-thinking municipal government that understands market trends and economic development. Woodmont shares the city’s vision for the project as well as the importance of local redevelopment,” Stephen Santola, executive vice president of Woodmont Properties, said. “We look forward to the completion of 111 Main St. as well as our ongoing expansion in New Jersey and beyond.”

WIP and Jingoli joined forces several years ago to develop the property. In late 2021, the South Amboy planning board unanimously approved the project.
