'A dream come true': Developers break ground on Newark 'vertical farm'
"This is a very important moment for the city of Newark, for the state of New Jersey, for the planet, for humanity," said David Rosenberg, CEO of Aerofarms, the company that will call the building home.

Once completed, the 69,000-square foot building will house rows and rows of so-called "skyscrapers" - small towers filled with soil beds that will produce about two million pounds of green vegetables and herbs each year.

Seems like this kind of light industry is a perfect fit for lots of cities like Newark, Trenton, Camden, etc...

I didn't hear of any tax breaks or abatement's....so I guess its a true organic project.

Why wasn't that a pun? It was a play on words with two meanings, organic as in "arising naturally" and organic as in something pertaining to a class of compounds comprising plant life.

North Carolina energy company moving headquarters to Newark
Lime Energy did not disclose exactly when the move will take place, or how many jobs it might add in Newark. The new headquarters will be located at Three Gateway Center, next to Newark Penn Station.

In a statement, president and CEO Adam Procell said Newark would provide the company with "great connectivity" to other Northeast cities, as well as access to higher education and a talented workforce.

"This move allows us to continue 'walking the walk' in our commitment to sustainability and to supporting the communities where we work and live," he said.

Late June The Ironbound Newark update from Brandon Nagle
Quote:
86-88 Bruen Street



Railroad and Elm Street project




Oliver Street School



Whoever thought this would look good needs to be left in 1980/90.

The original rendering promised this:

http://www.spectorgroup.com/oliver-street-school/

It was value engineered to death to this:

http://www.lusoamericano.com/?tag=oliver-street-school

This building is supposed to be renovated to loft apartments, but no progress yet.


Diagonally across the street, the Carvi Hotel site remains relatively untouched. It does appear that they are slowly picking at the houses, likely having to do a lot of asbestos removal.



A restaurant on Ferry Street is being renovated.



The mixed-use building on Polk Street


A Bayonne Box on Polk Street


The environmental remediation project at Polk and Market Street is complete.

L+M Development Partners, along with a slew of other partners and investors, are currently converting the four-story, 400,000 square-foot Hahne & Co. building, located at 609 Broad Street, in downtown Newark,
into a mixed-use structure. 160 residential units are being sculpted out of the upper levels, and 75,000 square feet of retail will occupy the ground floor, which includes a 30,000 square-foot Whole Foods.

N.J. names 30th transit village, town calls designation 'tremendous'

By Jessica Mazzola | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on July 08, 2015 at 5:20 PM, updated July 08, 2015 at 5:22 PM

IRVINGTON — New Jersey has two more transit villages, bringing the state's grand total to 30, the Christie administration announced in a release Wednesday.

Park Ridge and Irvington have secured the state's "transit village" designation, an NJDOT-administered program that connects transit hubs across the state with experts and funding to redevelop the land surrounding them.

Those in Irvington say they are hopeful that the new designation will be the first step toward a revitalization.

"This is a tremendous designation for Irvington," said Wayne Bradley, the township's Director of Community Development. With the help of the designation, "we are trying to uplift (the area), create a real ambiance, and get Irvington to be a place."

Recent Downtown Newark update from Brandon Nagle

Quote:
NJIT has installed a huge new sign on Weston Hall, the architecture building I spend WAY to much time in. Now if only they could put a nice canopy over that door...



The adjacent backside of the Central King Building will be renovated into a multipurpose glass space for meetings and performances. It will be a very welcome change from the current fortress state, which replaced a beautiful and elaborate ornate stairway.



The New Street Pedestrian corridor will go through the middle of this building, and a portion will be demolished for a nice gateway into the Rutgers Campus Center.




238 MLK Boulevard



15 Washington Street





Cablevision Office and Garage



This may be the most attractive parking garage I have seen in a while, although I am patiently awaiting the retail tenants of the ground floor. It brings a nice streetscape about 300 feet closer to Broad Street Station. Only about 1000+ to go...



BURG's Memorial Day opening has come and gone. They are so close, but they will likely miss the entire summer. Military Park was otherwise still in use with about 20 people there despite the 95 degree heat and no formal events.



Prudential Tower
At 20 floors and about 313 feet tall, it is by far the biggest recent redevelopment in Newark. It is not only big, but the detailing is exquisite and luxurious. The opening date has not occured yet, as work is continuing inside. Some of the retail is leased, but three spaces are not. Hopefully this huge complex will become the catalyst for activity that is so desperately needed downtown.







While still somewhat seperated, wide staircases invite pedestrians up into the front plaza. This completely breaks the previous trend of only having a narrow entry controlled by a metal gate and fence. Just look at the Panasonic Building that was just completed last year!



Supposedly a cafe' on the 5th floor (the double height one at the garage roof level) will be open to the public, also allowing them to visit the huge green rooftop park on top of the garage. Only time will tell if that actually happens, but the original plans clearly stated that it would be open to the general public from 8 am to 5 pm.



Supposedly a large shoe store (Reebok?) will occupy this entire space. A large anchor tenant is needed to draw people to the area to also enjoy the other smaller stores. If the current state of the space is any indication, it will likely be locked up tight, which is banned. Any security gates must be 90% transparent in order to allow the police to see in and the security lighting to flow out and illuminate the sidewalk.



Ron Tomson is a luxury men's business suits store, a great addition, but they had better diversify their models to have any luck in Newark!



Hahne's Building




Excavation is nearly complete for the 6-8 story addition to the Halsey Street side of the Hahne's Building




PSE&G Plaza Updates

I really wish this element would go! There is practically nothing more car oriented in a pedestrian environment than a chicane, a loop of pavement to drive your car right to the door. A constant stream of vehicles move in and out of them with little regard for pedestrians on the sidewalk and when they are full, the cars park ON the sidewalk.




Jimmy John's will open any day now in the recently extended building.



Rutger's Life Sciences Building is getting a 6 story twin and the greenhouses that once occupied the site are now finally gone.
