HANOVER, NJ-Red Bull New York will get a new headquarters and practice complex on a 45-acre site owned by Hartz Mountain Industries. Better known as the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer, the organization will own the complex and occupy the site under a long-term ground lease with Hartz. About half of the site is usable, with the rest wetlands and drainage. Terms of the deal were not released, and a spokesman for Red Bull New York declined to release information on the cost of the complex.

“Our facility will finally give the Red Bulls a place we can call home,” says the organization’s managing director, Marc de Grandpre. “We are committed to seeing this team and this sport be successful in the tri-state area, and this facility is a huge piece of that puzzle.”

The complex will consist of a 50,000-sf, two-story office building that will house the sporting and business sides of the RBNY organization. The first floor will include multiple locker rooms, a players’ lounge, weight room and trainers’ room. The second floor will house the organization’s headquarters. Also part of the site plan is a separate one-story, 3,700-sf field house equipped with locker rooms.

Plans also call for six practice soccer fields, five of them outdoors and one covered by a tension fabric frame structure. The fields will be a mix of natural and synthetic surfaces, and four of them will be equipped with lights for evening activities.

“We look forward to becoming part of this community,” de Grandpre says. “With this facility, we can provide meaningful opportunities for youths all across the region.”

“We have been a partner with the Town of Hanover for 20 years,” says Emanuel Stern, president and COO of the Secaucus, NJ-based Hartz, which has developed several W/D facilities on surrounding sites. “Now, the last parcel of our Hanover site will be home to our most exciting use.”

Construction is expected to start this fall and be completed by the end of 2008. Work will coincide with construction of a new home stadium for the MLS franchise. As reported by GlobeSt.com, work is under way on Red Bull Park in Harrison, NJ, a centerpiece of that city’s MetroCentre mixed-use redevelopment. The 25,000-seat stadium is slated for delivery in time for the 2009 season.
