It way mean absolutely nothing, but 231 Washington Street Urban Renewal Associates, LLC is showing up several times in the Newark Municipal Council proceedings.
https://newark.legistar.com/MeetingD...tions=&Search=

It is part of the site of the 40 story tower seen in the 2015 image.

I'm not sure why People oppose High Rises and Skyscrapers in Newark. Jersey City is getting redevelopments left and right and will run out of space by the end of the decade. Jersey City does not have unlimited amounts of space that hasn't been snatched up by a Developer or is preserved for historical reasons. Newark has giant swaths of land that can built upon , and this region badly needs more residential units in Urban areas. Newark has the grid and resources transportation wise to handle a massive redevelopment. Factoring Climate Change , Downtown Newark is does not flood unlike the emerging areas of Jersey City and Hoboken. So far SOMA Phase 1 and the other redevelopments in Downtown Newark seem to be doing extremely well. Downtown Newark is where Downtown Brooklyn was 15 years ago , its just starting to transform into a livable Downtown. Yonkers , New Rochelle and The South Bronx have a few High Rises and Skyscrapers Planned.

15-20 years ago Downtown Brooklyn was dumpy and crime infested. Downtown Newark doesn't have a crime problem , there's also a large artist , musician , and growing middle class population. A lot of priced out New Yorkers and Jersey City residents are moving to Downtown Newark....which is still cheap to rent.

I'm very hopeful for Newark.. yeah like others say there are problems, and crime is a major one. It's a transportation hub though and the potential is there for a major renaissance. It's our largest city and with so much untapped potential, and the positives you mention it already has, it definitely is poised for better things.

No , the Crime problem is mainly in the South and West Wards. Its just gritty and Under-Invested like parts of Downtown Brooklyn... But that is changing.. Its like Journal SQ in a lot of regards which has just started its transformation journey. Downtown Newark is next and its already happening. Most of the Redevelopment is underway North of Raymond boulevard which is less gritty and has better Transportation access then South of Raymond. SOMA is south of Raymond.

YIMBY Today: Newark’s Four Corners Millennium Project Moving Forward



Quote:
75 Market Street [Wall Street Journal]: RBH Group appears to be moving forward with their Richard Meier-designed “Four Corners Millennium Project” – derived from SoMa Newark – to be located in Downtown Newark. According to preliminary renderings, a main structure located at 75 Market Street “is expected to have 705 residential units, a hotel, retail and office space.”

Looks to be about 2.5 times taller than the national newark building (465') so that comes out to around 1,200'. Certainly not disappointing seeing as it's in Newark. Definitely taller and nicer than I expected!

I guess that's still to be determined but the renders suggest a supertall.

excellent! Newark could use some taller modern towers. It's one of the few larger cities that still have prewar towers prominent in their skyline.

So a skyline that can't even support a single 150m building is suddenly going to have a supertall? That's pretty stupid if you ask me. This isn't going to complement the existing skyline at all. It's going to dominate it. It's going to BE the skyline.

Also, are these developers smoking crack? This is freaking NEWARK we are talking about. The city just isn't a safe, desirable place to be. This tower really doesn't make sense.

Most of China is way nicer and safer than Newark, at least where I've been.

Isn't downtown Newark right near the airport though? I wonder if the FAA will have a problem with this.

I do agree it is odd, and like I said it would be better in JC or definitely brooklyn or queens. But hey a supertall is a supertall.

It is fairly close from what i remember when i flew over/nearby it to Newark airport!

I was surprised to see how many 'mini' cities there were dotted around New York, I was impressed with Newarks skyline alone thinking that it's much more impressive than any skyline (except London) in Britain!

Newark as a city does look nice though, its a shame about it being a 'dangerous' city as it looks to have massive potential!
