8 Floors and rising!

South slab is now eight floors and the grand glass atrium is now clearly visible (without glass).

Why are the beams on the right side of the top floor slanted out over the building profile? Also, structurally, will the rest of the building be placed on top of those slanted beams? Is that possible?

no problem. I didn't see this in the renders. I must have missed something.

Thanks for the responses. I'm sure they know what they're doing, but it is weird. The renderings certainly don't show a "bump out" in the side of the building, but I think this is where the roof deck of the parking/retail structure abuts the main building, so it may be integrated into that. Guess we'll find out soon!

Can't wait to see the project finished, with the Hahne's building condos and Whole Foods across New Street open and the Military Park completely redone. I'm also glad Prudential is utilizing the underground space in a very big way. What is that, a three story megablock parking structure?! It's larger than Military Park Garage across the street, which is an underground lot that is three stories. It's huge.

I've worked on this block in Newark for 10 years, and it's amazing how much the city has accomplished in that short time, especially during a recession. This area is going to be super-hot in another 10 years, since young professionals are already getting priced out of Hoboken and Jersey City.

More cranes are being added to this project. In addition to the two main cranes, there is now a third large crane being constructed where the large parking/retail area will be. And, of course, there are 3-4 other smaller cranes at the site. It's huge!

Great shot. This photo exemplifies just how big this project is. In addition to the main tower in the background, Prudential is rehabilitating two older buildings at the south end of the site. I'm guessing these will turn into retail stores and offices or apartments above. On the north end of the site, construction has started converting the vacant Hahne's building into a Whole Foods and condos above.

Today they delivered and set pre-cast concrete pillars for the parking garage, so the parking deck/retail extension is officially above grade now. Movin' fast.

Sure is! Anticipated opening date of 2016. They've got a lot of renovation to do on the Hahne's building first. Right now they're removing what seems like 300 years of accumulation and knocking down anything that isn't structurally sound, like the entire back wall. Also, the basement extends almost all the way to the Broad Street curb under the sidewalk. A section at the corner of Broad and New Streets collapsed, and you can look into the basement from the middle of the sidewalk. Just found this interesting. Maximizing space, I guess.

I'm guessing this Whole Foods is going to have a large cafeteria area and a coffee bar, to cater to the lunch time Prudential and other surrounding business employees.

Getting back to the Prudential building, is this being constructed without a central core? I see no concrete being poured for elevator shafts?

Still rising, despite the snow!

All images are from my blog, http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot.com/






This is on the second, taller tower's site. It is being used temporarily as a construction office.

The windows are starting to go in. They are very clear windows. You can see directly inside the building even with the sun reflecting against them.

The smaller tower is nearing completion. The larger one will take a little longer to start as two temporary buildings have been built as space holders until work actually begins on it.

The images are on my blog, http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot.com/

















Check out my blog, http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot.com/ for more development projects across Newark. There are a lot of small infill projects occurring.

This is still moving along. Glass has stalled for a while as they have been adding the mechanical systems to the top of the taller slab that almost entirely occupy the top two floors. Garage work is moving along faster.










This is the base of the 50x100 foot green wall that will cover most of the garage. The brackets on the side will support it.









The building on the left is the old Valu-Plus building. The two story building next to it is new construction. It and another building on Halsey Street will serve as temporary infill until the second taller building of similar design can be built.
