RED BANK, NJ: At 6:30pm, tonight, Thursday, January 16th, the Zoning Board will have hearing on a proposal to build a nine-story structure on top of the Pazzo MMX restaurant that includes an apartment building at 141 West Front Street.

The developer is the PRC Group owner of the Red Bank Corporate Center

The hearing is being submitted as a “…bifurcated use variance,” which means that PRC will submit a separate application for the variance and a subsequent application for subdivision, site plan or conditional use approval if the initial variance application is granted.

PRC is seeking variances that would allow it to build:

  • A one-floor parking garage and a four-story apartment building over the existing 4 level garage
  • Proposed six-story apartments over existing Pazzo MMX restaurant

The apartment building will have 150 residential units.  Ranging in size from 410 square feet to 1,018 square feet, the apartments will be a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. To meet the towns affordable housing requirements, a total of sixteen units would be classified as affordable.

The top (ninth) floor will have a “green” roof deck.

The former Sanford Auto Body Service building will be demolished to expand the next door existing parking garage. 

Hurdles that PRC will face: height restrictions, (apartment) density, parking allowance, plus a host of set-back boundaries.
