A UPS distribution facility and 1,000 new jobs are coming to Bayonne’s Military Ocean Terminal (MOTBY). The Peninsula City’s planning board approved amendments to the site plan, allowing the construction of the facility along 150 waterfront acres with direct access to Global terminals and the New Jersey Turnpike.
“When I first became Mayor in 2014, the development of MOTBY and bringing jobs back to Bayonne were my top priorities,” said Bayonne Mayor James Davis. “This project with UPS helps me accomplish both, and is not only good for Bayonne but for the entire region.”
“This is a welcomed addition to the revitalization of the former MOTBY site and great news for Bayonne’s families,” said U.S. Senator Bob Menendez. “I applaud Mayor Davis and his council for their continued leadership in attracting new, good-paying jobs and economic opportunities to the city.”
MOTBY was transferred to Bayonne in 1999 and has experienced robust redevelopment, including residential projects and retail tenants such as COSTCO, Starbucks, and Lidl.
