Municipal Center Longshot

The new Montgomery Municipal Center is located just west of the intersection of Orchard Road and Route 206, near our schools and shopping district. Here are some highlights:

  • 62,500 square feet total, including the Somerset County Library Branch of 20,000 square feet.
  • Library and Police Dept. on first floor. All other municipal offices on second floor.
  • The Library Branch includes small study rooms, a conference room, a children’s section, a lounge area for parents and casual readers, a sound proof studio for podcasting and recordings and lockers outside for after-hours pick-up of books via a code sent to mobile phone or device.
  • Eleven formal meeting rooms, with the largest accommodating 100 people.
  • Space for community artwork and items of historical and cultural importance included inside the building.
  • Council chambers are open and airy with glass entranceway. The roofline here evokes the stature of a gable barn, reflecting Montgomery’s agricultural heritage.
  • Stone, wood, and glass exterior. Natural colors in a contemporary style.
  • The project includes green space around the building, an events plaza, and rain garden.
  • Design by DMR Architect of Hasbrouk Heights, NJ and construction by Debco Inc. of Wayne, NJ.
  • 45-acre site of the former ConvaTec corporate offices, purchased for $5.9M by Somerset Cty. Improvement Authority.
  • Montgomery’s $30-year loan of $35 million has an interest rate of 1.75%.
  • $5.375 million in state library funds received, offsetting costs.
