One of downtown Red Bank’s most distinctly modern office buildings is up for a makeover, according to an application scheduled for review by the Historic Preservation Commission this week.
The plan for 268 Broad Street calls for a facade replacement, with a new skin replacing the wood sheathing and additional windows, according to a certificate-of-appropriateness application filed earlier this month.
Built in 1979 for the Zager, Fuchs law firm firm, the structure is nestled among former Victorian mansions converted to office use. According to a report in the now-defunct Red Bank Register, it was designed by the Red Bank architecture firm of Kaplan, Gaunt & DeSantis (now known as kgd Grammer Designs).
The building is currently leased to the Zager firm and a title agency.
Also on the HPC agenda are signage requests by Relic Music, a guitar shop at 13 Monmouth Street, and Mark Sobel M.D., a physician at 206 Broad Street.
