MONROE TWP., NJ-The Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey plans to build a new 20,000-sf headquarters on a seven-acre site here. The site is being donated to the organization, which offers outreach programs to seriously ill children, by Jack Morris, CEO of Edgewood Properties of Piscataway, NJ. Ground is slated to be broken next spring with a completion date of mid-2007.

The new facility will combine the group’s operations in Union, NJ, where it’s based, and Cherry Hill, NJ. It will house space for special events, a volunteer training and development center, staff offices and other facilities.

“The gift of this land is the most significant step to date in our realizing the dream of building a truly magical facility for the children of New Jersey,” says Paul Huegel, president and CEO of the organization. “When children first see it, they will know that this is a place built for them.”

The seven-acre site is also within a larger tract of land along Route 33 in southern Middlesex County earmarked for mixed-use development by local officials. Proposals call for a new minor league baseball park that would be operated by Steve Kalafer, chairman of the Somerset Patriots minor league team in Bridgewater, NJ, along with a shopping center, a residential component, a park-and-ride lot and open space. A task force appointed by Mayor Richard Pucci is currently studying the proposals.
