Lakewood Receives 59 Acres Worth 25 Million

The city council is set to vote Monday evening on a negotiated exchange proposal that would give Lakewood 59 acres of land in exchange for construction services on the Federal Center campus, near Union Boulevard and West 6th Avenue.

The plot of land was appraised at $25 million. And that's how much the city of Lakewood would spend to work on the Federal Center campus per the deal.

Specifically, the city would build a new lab for the Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Geological Survey to replace the existing one. Once this is done, the city would own the land.

Funding for the project would come from refinancing a lease-purchase agreement, as well as Lakewood's existing savings account.

According to Lakewood Mayor Bob Murphy, once the city obtains the land, it will sell parcels to the private sector with the city council's guidance. The neighborhood authority, meanwhile, will determine what works best in specific areas.

The development will not be another Belmar, Murphy said.

Instead, the plan is to turn it into a mixed-use space with offices and residential areas, along with open spaces and plazas.

The public can weigh in on the proposal at 7 p.m. Monday before the city council makes a final decision.

"It's an opportunity for the city to shepherd over the longterm, a true neighborhood," Murphy said.
