The area around Irvington will be bad for a long time. But anything that's close to Penn Station, you can expect a lot of redevelopment and improvement. As has been the case already. Panasonic building their new headquarters close to the station is a good example. They really need more mixed use development though.

One of the sites for the SOMA Newark...its been bought up and is awaiting construction...which could begin by Summer. The Whole Block is slated for redevelopment of some kind.

Nevermind I figured it out from the building in the background! That's where those super tall towers are standing in that one render of Soma. I can't post the pic cause I'm a newb.

It will likely not be the supertall tower from the SoMA project. Instead, I think it will be a 40 story tower.

If residential, it will contain 705 Apartments, a 130 room hotel, and 130,000-200,000 square feet of retail space across several floors as part of the Four Corners Millenium Project. Within that view, everything between but not including the KIRCH logo building on the left and the parking garage on the right would be demolished for an approximately 300'x250' site.


http://looplink.newjersey.cbre.us/ll...Market-Street/
It was originally proposed as an office tower with Panasonic as an anchor but they built their own 12 story building closer to Penn Station. I think it will look like this, which is called 101 Market Street, which is the name of the site. The supertall towers from the SoMA masterplan appear to be placed on the site of a now abandoned Bank of America office that is very much hated for its architecture of fear and likely poor quality space. The link says that it was updated 6 days ago, and said something else when I checked it several months ago, meaning that they are actually updating the site for the possible development.

The developer, RBH Group's homepage shows the base of the supertall tower on 101 Market Street, but that is likely a placeholder for the actual design.

Also, Nexis, thanks for reposting my image that I put on Wirednewyork without citing it from there or my blog at http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot.com/?view=sidebar

Ugh Newark looks so ghetto in that pic, hopefully this new development will turn downtown around.

New Look: Newark’s Four Corners Millennium Project



Quote:
Inklings of Newark’s resurgence have been peppered throughout the press in recent years, and at YIMBY we have covered plans for a 22-story apartment building with 224 units set to rise at One Theatre Square, as well as Richard Meier’s “SOMA Plan,” which offers a blueprint for developer RBH Group’s transformation of the city.

RBH’s current work in Newark is limited to smaller-scale projects like Teacher’s Village, though even that redevelopment is taking on a larger scope. And now it appears that the first tower within the larger master-plan may also be moving closer to reality.

As the Wall Street Journal reported in late December, RBH is planning a mixed-use skyscraper with over 700 residential units, in addition to a hotel, retail, and office space. And YIMBY’s new look for the tower confirms it will certainly be distinctive, rising approximately 80 stories.

While RBH has not released any formal height figures, the building appears to stand roughly 1,000 feet tall, which could (somewhat surprisingly) give Newark the distinction of having New Jersey’s first “supertall” of 1,000 feet or more. Jersey City’s boom has been immense, and its overall skyline has clearly surpassed Newark’s, but even its tallest proposal will stand 995 feet tall, falling short of the 1,000-foot mark.

Wow, this would really look insane in Newark, (weird too). But I am sure if this is built more will come.

How is this allowed with the airport so close? But that's great news though!

I dont think the planes fly right over the city anyway. They usually land/depart further east than where the buildings are.

The runways don't face Newark's CBD like they do in Miami.

The New York - Newark area is going to look like a polarized Shenzhen in the next decade. Standing in the One World Observatory or 30 Hudson Yards observatory and looking out to Jersey and the other boroughs will be jaw dropping.

NY will be the skyscraper capital again! (it maybe arguably is but a few cities are definitely in the running.)

actually it is not insane. downtown Newark is on the constant rise the last 15 years or so. It is incredibly vibrant place

I go to Newark quite often, so something of this height with the current buildings is pretty insane to me.

well, it's not like something out of scale with the rest of the skyline hasn't been done in the US before.
