Denholtz is now planning an investment of more than $60 million, according to FMERA. Under the
first phase, the Red Bank-based
firm is slated to renovate the nearly 53,000-square-foot commissary building to create a mix of food- or craft production-related uses such as eateries and production spaces, with construction expected to begin in early 2021.
The builder will also demolish the existing buildings in the warehouse district, post office area and post exchange and redevelop the area as office, research and development
