Denholtz Properties Announces First Retail Tenant for Transformative Red Bank Mixed-Use Community

Denholtz Properties announces it has inked its first lease for The Rail @ Red Bank, a mixed-use ground-up development project in Red Bank’s West Side neighborhood. Melonhead, a juice, smoothie and acai bowl shop, will take 565 square feet of the development’s 6,500 square feet of ground-level retail space with an anticipated April 2021 opening.

Currently under construction, the completion of The Rail @ Red Bank in 2021 will mark the next chapter in the ongoing evolution of Red Bank’s West Side neighborhood. Strategically located next to the Red Bank train station, the site is also adjacent to the recently renovated 30,000-square-foot 116 Chestnut Street office building that is home to Denholtz Properties’ corporate headquarters. Through combining one of New Jersey’s most in-demand locations with 57 luxury residential units, a robust amenities package, unique retail opportunities, and a wide range of public spaces, The Rail @ Red Bank will soon become one of the Garden State’s most unique live-work-play communities.

Since opening the first location in Sea Bright in 2016, Melonhead founder Nick Frangipane has taken inspiration from his travels around the globe to inspire the unique menu filled with a diverse selection of all-natural juices, smoothies and acai bowls. His new business partner, Jim Whelan, has been a great addition to the Melonhead team, bringing fresh ideas and skills to the table.

Building upon the success of the first location, Melonhead’s newest location at The Rail @ Red Bank will feature a sophisticated, island-style design with outdoor bistro seating to activate the area surrounding The Rail and the train station. Further capitalizing on their location next to the train station, Melonhead will also offer an expanded breakfast menu including coffee, oatmeal, bagels, and muffins as well as healthy breakfast options for an easy way for commuters to start their day.

“The Rail @ Red Bank’s retail tenants are not only an exciting amenity for the building’s residents but a key component in jumpstarting the local economy surrounding the train station,” said Steven Denholtz, CEO of Denholtz Properties. “Through attracting in-demand and growing tenants like Melonhead as well as new residents, we are confident that The Rail @ Red Bank will be a powerful catalyst in the continued growth of the business community on the West Side.”

Frangipane added, “When we started to think about a second location, Red Bank’s energy and dynamism made it the ideal spot. The design of The Rail @ Red Bank perfectly encapsulates that spirit and we are excited to be its first retail tenant and join the Red Bank community.”

The Rail @ Red Bank is scheduled for completion in Q2 2021. To learn more about The Rail @ Red Bank, please visit For more information on retail leasing opportunities, please contact Gary Krauss, Pierson Commercial Real Estate, at 732) 707-6900×7,
