Further distinguishing the residence is sought after views in both front and back. Gazing north from the front yard and kitchen, homeowners can take in the majesty of Parkers Creek. An expansive backyard boasts a large 400 square foot patio looking out to the huge green space of Fort Monmouth’s Parade Grounds.

East Gate is a collection of 68 ultra-luxe residences created by developer RPM Development Group in century-old Office Housing at Fort Monmouth. The vibrant neighborhood is almost completely sold out and home to more than 60 families, according to Coldwell Banker New Homes of Madison, NJ, its exclusive sales and marketing agent. The trailblazing community is the first residential component in the repositioning of the 1,126-acre former U.S. Army post into Monmouth County’s premier live/work/play neighborhood.
At East Gate, homeowners enjoy residing in an inviting neighborhood where residents can be found strolling along completed sidewalks and mature trees dot the landscape. There’s also the one-acre East Gate Park which includes pedestrian pathways, benches, newly-seeded lawns, seasonal flowers and shrubbery and a modernized lightning/lantern package. The centerpiece of the park is a monument that pays homage to the storied history of Fort Monmouth. What’s more, residents delight in the majesty and natural beauty of Parkers Creek which is home to a wealth of outdoor activities.
The overall Fort Monmouth redevelopment effort will ultimately comprise new housing, office space, retail, entertainment and dining, and recreational and social amenities spread across three municipalities. There’s a wealth of leisure-time activities within the grounds of Fort Monmouth, including waterfront dining, picturesque nature trails and scenic common outdoor spaces. The Fort Athletic Club, a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facility, is also in the works, and future site plans call for other exciting new amenities and services such as a bowling center and microbrewery. Also nearby are the Suneagles Golf Club’s 18-hole golf course and the Marina at Oceanport.
Location has played a significant role in the appeal of East Gate. The community is easily accessible to New Jersey Transit’s Little Silver Train Station, located just two miles away, and express ferry service, both of which provide fast service to Manhattan.
East Gate is also situated just minutes from popular New Jersey beaches and the banks of the Shrewsbury River, and is in proximity to the entertainment, dining and culture of Red Bank and Asbury Park. Major highways, including Routes 35, 36, 18 and the Garden State Parkway, are also nearby.
