The Recent Urban Revitalization Boom in Downtown Newark,New Jersey

5143 Views 13 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  towerpower123
Over the last 2 years Newark seen a Massive amount of Urban Reinvestment in its Downtown Core. Whether its older warehouses and buildings being renovated into lofts or apartments or older 3 story buildings being renovated into mixed use retail with apartments on the upper floors. Over the last 7 months things have really heated up with construction on the New Prudential Headquarters topping out and a New Cablevision call center high rise breaking ground. Whole Foods , Chipotle , Several Burger joints are opening up by the Fall... Over the last few weeks i've been documenting the various changes to Newark.... There will be a Downtown Thread , Ironbound thread and Passaic / Port Thread...the last thread won't be posted till mid July as I have yet to take the River tour yet. As I take New Downtown Photos from now on I'll just place them in this thread...unless its a specific event. I do plan on redoing Forest Hill and University Heights over again.

It's a joke and will set Newark back. No one is being displaced with the new developments.
What are people's thoughts about the affordable housing set aside bill that the Council will vote on tomorrow ? I was surprised to receive a mailer about it -- maybe it's intended more as a reminder to voters that Baraka is behind it (?)
