A miniature transit-oriented village in tune with its arts-district location, West Side Lofts includes apartments, artist studios, pedestrian plazas and retail space convenient to the Red Bank commuter rail station.

The building, massed so as to create the more intimate sense of four smaller structures, wraps around a landscaped courtyard, viewable from the glassed-in passages connecting the building elements. Apartments featuring private decks and pop-out bays overlook this pedestrian mews, which draws people through the site to the active sidewalk lined with cafes, galleries, and antiques shops.

A row of live-work units, facing a new theater, will provide studio, gallery, and living space to local artists, while a two-story brew pub will draw in people from the neighborhood. Residential and retail parking are hidden from street view by wrapping the parking structure with the residential units.
