An ambitious mixed-use project with 45 apartments and its own parking garage alongside the Red Bank train station won unanimous approval by the planning board Monday night.
Board members praised the plan, by Matawan-based Denholtz Associates, as one that fulfills the vision of the “train station overlay” zone to a tee.
“It seems to me the first project to really take advantage of that designation and be creative,” said board member and borough Administrator Stanley Sickels.
