Ready to move? Why Newark - yes, Newark - might be N.J.'s next hot neighborhood


By Kathryn Brenzel | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

NEWARK--The Brick City is next.

This seems to be the general consensus among some experts and politicians looking to peg the newest up-and-coming urban area in New Jersey. The ingredients are there: Access to mass transit, new massive development projects and the appeal of rents significantly cheaper than Manhattan.

Good and bad news for Harrison PATH riders awaiting new station
By Steve Strunsky | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on April 21, 2015 at 4:58 PM, updated April 21, 2015 at 5:47 PM

HARRISON — For Timothy Braddock, a media company engineer waiting for a train to New York at the Harrison PATH station, the sooner the 80-year-old station is scrapped for a planned $256 million replacement the better.

Downtown Newark Update for 4.21.15 from Brandon Nagle


Quote:
Shop-Rite apartments are topped out



Prudential Tower





Teacher's Village



Halsey Street side has reached its full height. The back half will rise another 2 floors.






Replacement of the Calumet Building.




15 Washington



Cablevision Garage (490 Broad Street)



Corner of James Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard will soon have a 5 story apartment building with a ground floor retail store and the adjacent 3 story brick building will be renovated. 77 apartments in all. This project was to be a part of the NJIT Gateway Project, so I guess it would count as Phase 2 (Honors dorm was phase 1.) The Gateway plan from 2007 describes it on pages 23 and 24. The actual project will be far different.
http://gateway.njit.edu/gateway/file...ptual-plan.pdf
The public notice board is a result of the new zoning ordinance called NZLUR and pronounced "NUZZ-LER"

Quote:
Two sites on either side of New York Avenue, between Pacific and Jefferson Streets, will soon have new 2 or 3 family houses built. Lets see how they will respond to Box and Beyond. Neither one can meet the wall of the adjacent house because of the side windows. Small older houses were recently removed from both sites.




Oliver Street school is moving along well.





Apartment building at Railroad Avenue and Elm Street



76-80 Bruen Street

Newark airport monorail targeted for scrap heap, cost $354M to build



The Port Authority is planning to replace the AirTrain monorail at Newark Liberty International Airport, which links EWR to an NJ Transit station on the Northeast Corridor Line. (Jerry McCrea | The Star-Ledger)

NEWARK — The 19-year-old AirTrain monorail system at Newark Liberty International Airport is being targeted for replacement.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has not publicly estimated the cost of a new system, or said when it expected the project to begin or end. But Port Authority commissioners are scheduled to vote Thursday to authorize spending $40 million on planning consultants for the project, plus another $30 million on technical experts.

I've always considered that system to be an under-designed gimmick. PATH should have been extended right into the Airport 20 years ago. Heck, it should have been done when the PA took over back in the '60s.

I guess the PATH extension is beginning to make a little more sense, now.

If not for the costs involved, it would be worth it to just go ahead and continue on into Staten Island via Elizabeth...

Even with the PATH extension, you'd still have the people mover from the "airport" station kindof like the new Oakland airport train from the BART station.

No, right INTO the airport, more like in Philadelphia, Heathrow, National Airport, and Dulles. No need for any people mover at all.

While it would obviously be more expensive, the PATH trains would follow a tunnel around the airport, making basically the same stops as the airtrain. They would obviously have to be in different parts of each terminal or parking area, but the same basic locations could be served.

A pitch for business Red Bulls focused on new partnerships at Harrison arena

By Joshua Burd, March 23, 2015 at 3:00 AM


Suites at Red Bull Arena are all-inclusive, making them hassle-free for corporate partners. - (PHOTO BY AARON HOUSTON)

For the New York Red Bulls, it was a landmark deal in more ways than one.

With their season just underway, the soccer club in March unveiled a marketing partnership with the Japanese heavy equipment maker Yanmar. Not only was it the largest sponsorship deal in club history — it marked the first time another company will have its name on the team's training jerseys and a permanent sign inside Red Bull Arena.

“It's big for us to allow that, because we only select very few partners to be co-branded with Red Bull in our building,” said Marc de Grandpre, the club's general manager. “So it speaks to the synergies between the cultural values of the company.”

They could always bring back the Newark - Elizabeth LRT which would service the Airport , the booming Downtown and the large Job Hubs of the Airport / Port / Jersey Gardens along with relieving Bus and Rail congestion between the Cities. The PATH could be extended to the Airport and Terminate in a main Station like you said... The LRT would connect to the Airport Station and continue you onto Elizabeth. I think EWR Should be transformed into a Regional Hub , servicing Intercity & Regional Buses ,PATH , LRT , Regional Rail & Amtrak.

Ya good luck getting that to happen, don't get me wrong I agree with you! I just do not think that this is going to be possible.

Newark-phobic no more: Outsiders need to see city's business promise, locals say

NEWARK — Would you open a business in Newark?

Plenty of people have said, "no." WalletHub, an finance website that creates nationwide rankings, recently named the city the worst one in the country to start a business. Earlier this year, the site said Newark was one of the worst places to find a job.

But, business owners and organizations in the city say those rankings are based on Newark's reputation – not what's actually happening downtown.

"This ranking is not just wrong, it's dead wrong," Otis Rolley, the President and CEO of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation, said in a statement to NJ Advance Media.
