Here are the highlights of the proposal for a new Red Bank parking garage submitted by Yellow Brook Property Company LLC, one of five developers to submit plans in response to a borough solicitation earlier this year.

White Street Proposal: The Beacon
Total parking spaces: 934, including 855 in a parking garage.
Total housing units: 236, including 60 for-sale condos, 176 rental units and 12 income-restricted apartments.
Commercial/office square footage: 7,100SF of retail
Ownership structure: Borough would own the parking garage.
Here’s the complete submission, with sensitive financial information redacted by the borough.
Yellow Brook, based in Red Bank and owned by Roger Mumford of Little Silver, built the 45-unit first phase of the Station Place apartment complex on Monmouth Street at West Street, which it later sold, and is now building the second phase of 12 subsidized-price units, called Oakland Square. [Correction: The original version of this post incorrectly reported that the new owner was building the affordable units.]
Yellow Brook also built number of single-family homes under the name Lincoln Square in the area of Bridge Avenue and Drs. James Parker Boulevard, where it has its office.
As reported by redbankgreen in April, Mumford is in the process of acquiring half a block’s worth of properties between Catherine and River streets east of Bridge Avenue where he hopes to win approval to build 22 “brownstone-style” townhomes.
