Fortune Square is Roger Mumford’s latest exciting enhancement to Red Bank’s West Side renaissance. The project was inspired by visionary T. Thomas Fortune and his home, Maple Hall, a national historic landmark since 1976, and recently designated National Site for Journalism. Fortune is considered by many to be the bridge to the modern civil rights movement and became the first black publisher. The Fortune Square luxury apartments are located to the rear of Maple Hall, a masterfully rehabilitated 19th century French mansard style structure that now serves as a cultural center to advance education, advocacy, human relations and journalistic integrity. The theme and architectural detail of Maple Hall were incorporated into the exterior design elements of Fortune Square.
“After reviewing term sheets from multiple lenders for our Fortune Square project, we decided to proceed with Peapack-Gladstone Bank, based on their reputation for responsive, efficient and innovative service. My experience with Marc Magliaro and his team, from term sheet through closing, proved seamless. In addition, and as part of the process, Marc arranged for a Bank professional to precisely explain a creative financing option that resulted in an extremely attractive permanent rate. I would recommend Peapack-Gladstone Bank without reservation.”
