Concerning the news that EWR airtrain is to be shut down and the input some users gave to make this a chance for the PATH Extension to EWR and on towards SI I made a small map to present my thoughts on the topic:



Most facts about track alignment are explained in the map, something about future services:

>You could shut down EWR Amtrak and NJT station routing all longer-distance rail passengers through Elizabeth and Newark Penn, which would (at least a littlebit) speed up travel times on the NEC.
>In addition to the possible through services to Staten Island this line would need two shuttle services to compress headways around EWR: An Elizabeth-Newark Penn shuttle as well as one that just follows the exact service of the EWR airtrain.

I know, I know, pipe dream, never going to happen and even if, only with costs that skyrocket into the billions and construction times of probably 20 years but IF it happened it would greatly improve greater NYC's travel infrastructure

I would simply follow the existing NEC tracks to the current EWR station (or thereabout) and then follow the current alignment through the airport. The current EWR station could be the center for a new development that would be served by NJ Transit (but not Amtrak).

I do agree on the need for the possible shuttle services, though.

There's an issue with the fact that the SIRT and PATH loading profiles are quite different (wider and longer cars on SIRT). I would avoid the cost of punching through Elizabeth (that's got to be most of the price tag for this) and simply extend SIRT out to a meeting with the Raritan Valley Line.

Railroad Avenue and Elm Street project




Carvi Hotel site is still untouched. As far as I know, they never applied for tax credits. Instead, the zoning set a 5 story height limit across the
Ironbound (8 stories nearer to Penn Station), and this is supposed to be 6 floors, but will only be slightly taller than the adjacent building by the same firm.



Polk Street project



Polk and Market Street project, which is likely an environmental remediation site without any typical signage.




Market Street gasworks environmental remediation is complete.




A new retail store will go into the left bay of this building, which was renovated at least 2 years ago.

New hotel to join waterfront district in Harrison

By Kathryn Brenzel | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on May 18, 2015 at 1:01 PM, updated May 18, 2015 at 2:03 PM

HARRISON—A New Jersey-based developer plans to include a hotel as part of its efforts to transform 35-acres in Harrison.

Advance Realty announced that an AC Hotel by Marriott will join the Riverbend District, the developer's 35-acre redevelopment project in southern Harrison. The district is part of the town's plans to recast itself as a commercial and residential hub, largely through 250 acres along the Passaic River.

"The addition of AC Hotels by Marriott to the Riverbend District will be a key component in the continued development and enhancement of a dynamic destination in Harrison," Peter Cocoziello, president of Advance Realty, said in a statement. "The AC Hotel will benefit area corporations by accommodating business travel and will add to the variety of dining and entertainment options for Riverbend residents and visitors."

I would just go with the old Proposal for a Newark-Elizabeth LRT via Elizabethport with a Streetcar or BRT along Highway 27 between the 2 Cities.

That would probably make sense too, being cheaper plus there is this other proposal for the Staten Island west coast branch which is favoring an LRT, too.
Still I would say that given the plans to shut down the AirTrain it would be best to extend PATH into EWR, you could possibly set up a transit center to connect with the southbound LRT somewhere around there

Mini Newark Update from Kevlar Ewr over on WNY

Green wall on the garage






They re-did the front on the old value plus building - it previously had 3 entrances, now it has been redone to one (maybe a large tenant moving in?)



Pilings for the Hanes low rise

I would also add BRT along US 1/9 from the Airport to Woodbridge.

A fresh start: In Newark, developers see demand for new units
June 9, 2015 at 7:30 AM


60 Nevada in Newark, an affordable housing development by RPM Development Group. - (Photo / AARON HOUSTON)

It was late April when RPM Development marked the opening of its newest apartment building in downtown Newark, known as 60 Nevada, but roughly half of its 75 units had already been leased by the time executives and city officials gathered for the ceremonial ribbon-cutting. If you ask Joe Portelli, that came as no surprise.

“That’s not uncommon for Newark,” said Portelli, vice president of development at the Montclair-based firm. “There’s a tremendous demand for high-quality affordable units here. … A lot of people come from nearby, people who are in town looking to upgrade their housing. And I think that you’ll find that there’s a lot of affordable housing in Newark, but the difference is quality that’s safe, that’s clean.”

188-192 Wilson Avenue/Jabez, CPB will be hearing a proposal for a renovation/construction to turn lots 30, 31 and 32 into a bank/apartments and parking lot.

Harrison Construction Updatefrom West Hudson on WNY

Quote:
200 Middlesex
Heavy demo should be starting this week with equipment having arrived. Here's one last look at the rinky-dink buildings that will be replaced with a massive structure of 5-8 stories in the coming years.







300 Middlesex
Alot of metallic panelling has gone up in the past few weeks, as well as the first balcony railing.











221 Bergen
Stucco work is just about complete on the first building and stone installation began on Friday.







1100 FER South
Masonry work is practically complete on two of the four sides of the building and has started on the rear (facing Red Bull Arena). Precast planters have been placed and an elevated sidewalk (similar to what we have in Harrison Commons) is taking shape along FER.







1200 FER South
Work continues on raising the site to comply with flood plane guidelines.





127 Bergen
Excavation of the foundations is taking place.



100-102 Harrison Ave
Construction should be progressing to the third floor by the end of the week.



New Decorative Rail at Element
Love this artistic new pedestrian barrier...not sure if this is the only place it will be installed but I think it would be great if the town replaced the banners on FER south of the PATH station with something like this.
