Infill & Smaller Redevelopment Projects for Newark

Some recent Photos to start the thread from Brandon Nagle

Downtown Newark

Hahne's Building
According to Newark Planning Board filings on 9/22/14, the building will have a TWELVE (12) story addition on the corner of Halsey and New Street, whether or not they are still going for it. That lists 127 residential units in the main building and 212 units in the addition. It will also have 100,000 square feet of office space and 68,000 square feet of street level retail space.

999 Broad Street
This is filed to the zoning board as 987 Broad Street and will be 5 floors with 84 residential units above parking and
5000 square feet of retail space fronting Broad Street.

15 Washington is completed. This Facebook page has a lot of interior photos. https://www.facebook.com/RUN15Wash



Cable Vision Garage/Offices (490 Broad Street) and the re-cladding of 494 Broad



Nike will still open October 1st according to their signage.



These windows are as blocked as before. I am hoping to get some info from the Planning board about that situation, because if
it is legal, it could sabotage many efforts to improve the streetscape. Just provide the require clear window area in the front and
get approved. Then turn the store around, block the front windows, and just use a rear entrance, as many Newark-phobic businesses would want to.



According to a classmate who attended several Planning Board meetings, this huge warehouse owned by Edison Properties is so strong, it can
support a 15 story addition of residential space, which they discussed at a planning board meeting, making their claims of retail, restaurants,
art galleries, and office space that much more likely. Hopefully they will do something to the facade otherwise I predict a fully enclosed mall.



Hobby Deli's corner is being renovated at long last. It includes the last 5-6 storefronts.




A new store called Fallas is coming to Broad Street to the old Bamberger's building. It is a discount clothing
store that is the rebranding of Conway, the store you might recognize from the corner of Broad and Market.



The pair of rowhouses at the corner of East Park Street and Mulberry Street will be renovated and expanded to contain 15 apartments.

As I had properly assumed before, this site at 118-126 Green Street will be developed soon. A 5 story addition will be made to the former industrial building for 77 apartments and 2229 square feet of retail space. That was approved on July 27th.

The building on the far right of the image with the Moneygram ad, 196 Market Street, will be renovated into 18 apartments and 2 storefronts. It had to go infront of the historic preservation board for a second staircase. The bricks will be cleaned and new glass will be added to the storefronts. http://planning.ci.newark.nj.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/LHPC_150722.pdf
This means that the momentum created by Rockplaza lofts will continue along Market Street to put the upper floors of those buildings to use.

University Heights

NJIT Central King Building




It will look like this:

267 MLK Blvd is being converted into a 4 dorm Frat House, maintaining the usage of that stretch as "Frat Row"



238-240 MLK seems to be stuck for possible environmental cleanup after being off to a very quick start.

A 60 x 150 lot on 37-39 Jackson Street just sold for $740,000.

Approved for 18 units.

Let's see now long it takes to build.

This development plus the old Continental and El Pastor lot on Market and Polk would really help this area.

Too bad. Without this project Newark's downtown will always be incomplete.
We still have the Teacher's Village , Hahnes Development , the various University Heights redevelopments... So DT Newark will be busier then every in a few years...

@Nexis nice pics didn't the Hahnes building have different windows?

I think the area by Teachers Village will start to take off in development once that project gets finished especially Branford Place.

I'm surprised there's no downtown movie theater's hopefully they can do something with the abandoned Paramount, Adams, and RKO Procters Theatres.

Yes , all the windows on the Hanhes building have been replaced. I think four corners is more of a game changer then the NJPAC for Downtown Newark...

So how will they accommodate the parking for the Hahnes project when its finished?

The old Bamburgers building would have been great for mix use type of housing considering its location.

I agree the four corners project would be great for that part of downtown along with the SOMA project.

Is there any news on the Triangle park?

The parking will be underground. But i'm not sure how many spots they will have. I'll ask about the Triangle Park when I do my Newark update later this week.
