if the Millenium tower is 1000', I wonder how tall the building envisioned with the spire would be?

Those buildings look ridiculous in Newark, but hey if it revitalizes downtown that's a great thing.

Newark is a sh*t hole, basically a big Camden

If you have nothing positive to say , then don't comment. I'm tired of people posting stereotypes about Newark and other parts of Urban Jersey...most of them are outdated by 10 years..

Urban New Jersey is still very dangerous. And the roads are post apocalyptic. I took a wrong turn once and ended up on a road with miles of solid concrete median barrier so I ended up shunted all the way up to I-95.

Only 10 square miles of Urban Jersey which is around 630 Square miles if you add up all the cities is dangerous. The rest of Urban Jersey is on par with NYC crime levels or lower... The worst areas of Newark are in the South & West Wards. The Redevelopment is occurring in the Downtown , University Heights , and the East Ward which rarely see any violent crime these days. But what does Crime have to do with redevelopment in a stable and revitalizing area. How come I never hear of crime concerns being raised on the various NYC threads?

Man so much hate for Newark in this thread. I'm excited for these towers though. Newark could really use some modern architecture and the height is delightful.

I wasn't trying to hate on Newark, but I've lived most of my life in the northeast and urban Jersey is usually not so nice. On the plus side this would be a huge makeover for the city.

have you been there lately? Newark is improving the last 20 years - basically all in front of my own eyes. Downtown and Broad street corridor is changing as we speak. Also Ferry street and its Portuguese community bustling business - is another perfect example how things changed.

Some parts of the city in the west are pretty bad - that is true, but nothing is out of place in the downtown area. given its direct Path train connection to NYC - it is one of the most desired places to build something.

here's some more tidbits than what YIMBY provided. Revival seems to be the ultimate goal here.

http://www.rbhgrp.com/four-corners.html

Quote:
The Four Corners Millennium Project (“Millennium Project”) consists of seven mixed-use residential, hotel, office and retail buildings located in the heart of downtown Newark’s Four Corners Historic District.

[...]

The Millennium Project mirrors the goals and objectives of the SoMa Master Plan, extending the mixed-use, community-building concept north and east from the boundaries of SoMa (including its first phase Teachers Village development), to activate the core of the central business district. Specific uses within the Millennium Project include:

Residential: 807,565 sf (705 units)
Hotel: 70,815 sf (130 rooms)
Retail: 161,670 sf
Office: 110,000 sf

The buildings each contain retail on the ground floor, with residential, office or hotel uses above the ground floor. Parking for 599 cars will be accommodated within the project. Historic features of significant and Landmarked buildings will be preserved in the overall design of the Project.

The Millennium Project builds upon the City’s master planning efforts as outlined in the Living Downtown Plan and the Master Plan to strengthen Four Corners as the active retail crossroads of the downtown by encouraging a continuous, active street wall along Broad and Market Streets that creates vibrant storefronts with day and evening uses that promote pedestrian activity on the street.

In addition, the Millennium Project will enhance the quality of the downtown experience in order to increase residential population, support business attraction, and increase retail spending by a range of downtown populations, including residents, workers, students, and visitors.

More Downtown Newark from Brandon Nagle
Quote:
RBH's Four Corners project will consist of 2 simultaneously constructed buildings that will together house 300 mostly market-rate apartments. The buildings are being designed now, will cost $100 Million each, and will likely break ground by the end of 2015. Both buildings will have underground parking, but not much. Instead, there will likely by a valet system to the other RBH owned lots. They own 79 properties that were purchased for $130 Million.
One will be next to the RBH Office. It will reach from the garage to the edge of 89 Market Street. It will be designed by Richard Meier and rise 13 stories high with ground floor retail.



The second will be 16 stories high and will by designed by Frank Gehry. It will also contain a hotel and some office space, and will somehow incorporate the facade of the Paramount Theater, and replace the buildings seen to the right of it. It will also break ground by the end of the year.

Poor old townhouses. They could add a lot of charme to the scene of Newark if renovated and incorporated into new complexes, instead they'll be gone (probably forever). American cities constantly repeat their mistakes in once urban downtown areas.

Comments like these are what holds Newark back! It has so much potential. I'm not from Newark, but I go to school there and it has really improved over the last 5-6 years.. This would make it a mini NYC.. I really hope I get to see this be built over the next 5 years!

I didn't mean it like that. I agree with you which is why I said if it revitalizes downtown that's great.

I would love for Newark to become a mini NYC.

Seeing those old structures in such a state of disrepair saddens me greatly.

Great start conditions for Newark to become a Mini NYC/Mini Apple - it even has an advantage, it still has its original Penn Station.

Oh and it needs to make great efforts to keep and value its historical heritage! It's what can be a game changer compared to other more recent and bland neighbourhoods in the New York metro.

Ron Beit certainly doesn't share some of the negative sentiments expressed about Newark in this thread. This article is a month old, but it shows how RBH is more than just talk. (italics added)

The Four Corners Millennium Project is the architectural heart of Newark. You are credited with addressing the historic district in a comprehensive, integrated manner. What attracted you to the Four Corners, and what difference do you think your development will make to Newark?
Old-school New Jerseyans grew up shopping at the Four Corners of Broad and Market Street, and there’s a real sensitivity to this intersection, so because of that the city was very focused on making sure that it gets redeveloped. It’s also a very important location vis-à-vis the nodes of development starting to emerge. This is the intersection that creates a continuous experience connecting the downtown, as it once did.

There was difficulty building consensus among the many constituents holding parcels around this intersection, so we devised an ownership structure that would work for everyone and this singular maneuver made it a viable project, at least one that can even be pursued. After this project, the downtown will be well on its way to new heights and on a new trajectory.

What aspect of the Four Corners project do you find most exciting?
Activating this intersection in a way that’s respectful of the historic use, which was just commercial retail, but adding a new twist. We intend to activate it with a significant residential population. It’s going to elevate Newark to 21st-century global levels, with world-famous architects designing buildings that will be socially minded and set the standard for 21st-century development.

They are also STILL trying for 101 Market Street for the massive tower. The listing was posted on August 17th, so it is only 85 days old.
