Jeremy Grunin Asking for Community Assistance in Developing 200,000 Square Foot Site Near Ciba-Geigy


TOMS RIVER-Jeremy Grunin, son of Ocean County philanthropists Jay and Linda Grunin is seeking to develop a 50-acre wooded site along Route 37 between the Manchester border and the Ciba Geigy Superfund site.

“We’re excited to announce a 50 acre, 200,000 plus square foot project right on the border of Manchester and Toms River on the very busy Route 37 corridor,” Grunin said. “This is a fully CAFRA approved site.”

“We’re looking for ideas on what we can do to have the greatest economic impact in our county and create a few jobs,” he said. “We already have a few ideas of our own.”

The project is located at the intersection of Route 37 and North Hampton Boulevard, just 1,500 feet west of the entrance to the Ciba-Giegy BASF site.

Grunin said he is looking for input from the community on how to best develop the property.   You can visit for more information.

Originally the parcel of land Grunin is seeking to develop was to be turned into a Wal-Mart store about 10 years ago, but was shot down because of citizen opposition and the presence of many northern pine snake dens.

Grunin’s CAFRA permit was issued for a 193,000 square foot box store.  It’s not known at this time if that permit would cover any other development on the site.
