I think since 2011 or 2012.

Does anyone know where I can find pictures of a modern looking alternative to Bayonne Boxes? My parents are getting ready to build on a 25x100 lot and I am trying to get them to implement some modern ascetics to the exterior, but their architect stinks and doesn't know how to design the outside other than the traditional look.

Try googling Box and Beyond Newark NJ planning board. I have a link saved but I can't post it yet! They have a report with alternatives.

Thanks...I just looked through it.

The only one that is doable is the design by Gregory Comito. Some of those just aren't doable given the current market. We'd like to be under $250,000 in construction costs given this is a house they plan on selling.

The only way someone will develop some of those nicer two families is if it is an owner occupied 2 family without a mortgage. Most of the new 2 family houses are appraising for $440k. With the land and building costs you might be close to $400k easily.

Some of the designs are great, we just aren't in the market...yet

This would be huge! Would be great spot to connect Ferry Street with the Riverfront development.

Shaq is hiring for his 40 Rector Street tower

Shaq helps launch program to help Newarkers find construction project work

Quote:
Rehabilitation work recently began on the tower's future home on Rector Street, but will need hundreds of hands as work moves closer to completion.

Not long ago, the prospect of a $55-per-hour job seemed little more than a pipe dream to Eric Rollins. Today, however, the 35-year-old lifelong Newark resident can see a clear path to just that.

Rollins is among a small pool of applicants for "Project IMPACT" – a program officially launched today by city leaders and NBA great Shaquille O'Neal that aims to help Newarkers land a spot in local labor unions.

"When Newark becomes a great and beautiful city as is happening before our very eyes, the residents can benefit too," he said.

O'Neal, who has thrown his backing behind multiple development projects in Newark through his partnership with Boraie, said he planned to move into the tower's top floor after it was completed as a symbol of his enduring commitment to his hometown.

"Newark made me who I am. I just love this city. I've been coming back here since 1995,' he said. "I'll be here."

It's finally happening!
Photos likely tomorrow...

Newark Developments

Quote:
Originally Posted by towerpower123 View Post
Inspired by the Development Map that Jersey City puts out occasionally, I created a map of every known development project in Newark, all 123 of them! 14 more are on the accompanying chart but do not fit on the map. A few recent (since 2009) developments of note are shown to assist with way-finding.

It is on my blog, http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot....l?view=sidebar

The map shows the properties of the developments, not the actual buildings, so don't be fooled by the huge amount of work on Springfield Avenue, as it is mostly parking lots on site 83. The data is only from developments I can find data on, so there might be more! Unfortunately, there is the possibility that several "approved" or "proposed" developments won't occur at all for varying reasons (usually financing). Also, some developments might have advanced to the next stage, but I am not aware.

The data comes from a huge variety of sources including, but not limited to, Newark Planning Board minutes and decisions, news articles, press releases, developers' websites, City Councilman Amador's Ironbound Development slideshow, and real estate and apartment rental sites like Trulia, ForRent.com, loopnet.com, cityfeet.com, hotpads.com, and zillow.com, while some data was from memory.

The map covers an area of 2.5 miles East to West and 2.9 Miles North to South, approximately centered on Downtown.

Complete-Building is done and open
Construction-Work is underway to build or renovate the building
Approved-Building has passed the Newark Planning and/or Zoning Boards
Proposed-Known future projects that have not yet sought approval



It is also available on my Google Drive as a PDF.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9K...ew?usp=sharing

As you can see, most developments occur in defined clusters, especially NJIT, Lincoln Park, near Railroad Avenue. and Halsey Street. They vary widely in scale, and most are majority residential or educational developments. Many developments thankfully contain Ground Floor Retail spaces to better meet the street.


The following is a compilation list of all of the developments. The left-most column numbers correspond to the development map above. Those numbered as "N/A" do not fit on the map.







As seen in the chart, there is just over $1 Billion in new development either under construction now or soon to be under construction in the near future. About $1.2 Billion in developments were completed recently. This does not include the many smaller projects that move along without a promoted price tag.

1302 Residential units, 312,200 Square Feet of Retail space, and 1,234,000 Square Feet of Office Space (mostly Prudential and Panasonic) were completed recently. Not included in that figure is the gradual renovation and conversion of 165 Halsey Street into a Corporate Data Center, which will eventually provide 1,200,000 Square Feet of computer servers!

3293 Residential Units, 319 Hotel Rooms, 364,000 Square feet of Retail spaces, 648,000 Square feet of Classroom spaces, 544,000 Square feet of Offices, and 922,000 Square Feet of Industrial Warehouse space are underway or will be soon.

I drove by the RBH site on Rome street for the AeroFarm project and it's coming along. Foundation looks done and they have steel framing going up about 30 feet high. It was dark out, I'll try to take some pictures soon.
