    The Newark Museum, Infrastructure Improvement Project

    May 14, 2009 12:00 PM
    Amount Requested: $5,100,000
    The projected economic impact of the Signature Project is $300 million during four years of construction and the first year of operation after the construction is complete. The project will create more than 261 full-time equivalent construction-related jobs for each of the four years. The transportation request is a component of that larger project.
    Recipient's Address: 49 Washington Street Newark, NJ 07102

    Regan Associates is also providing project management services for the Newark Museum’s 100th Anniversary Signature Project, a $200 million renovation and expansion of the Museum’s five- acre urban campus.


    The Polhemus House will be restored, although as what is still unsure. That doesn't really matter, because you have provided enough evidence to form the basis of a "period" restoration a generation from now. It will be saved, and it will become part of the Signature Project--and in the first stage of the Signature Project, the Polhemus House will be a potent symbol of the importance of the overall project as a cultural beacon in Newark, and the house's restoration will, ultimately, give us leverage in completing the second phase of the project."


    Currently, Michel Graves & Associates is the architect for a major expansion of the Newark Museum. Called the 100th Anniversary Project, the first phase of construction is a 450-car parking garage designed with a fa軋de that will enhance the street edge.

I wont hold my breath. As for the teacher's village...whenever the developers say things like quote..."we expect to beguin construction SOMETIME next spring/summer/year...SORRY.....DONT HOLD YOUR BREATH! Developers are confident, and like to announce DEFINITE dates.

    Apparently, Donald Payne thinks Jersey city's skyline should represent NJ in his website page! I think he's confused about which is NJ's largest city. Or does he know something on 2010 census count we dont know? BTW when WILL we know Newark's census 2010 count? Taking a while.......

    The Newark Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission tonight unanimously approved a plan by the Newark Museum to demolish two buildings to make way for an "iconic" structure that will double the museum's gallery space.
    Shown to the public for the first time, the $235 million effort is slightly smaller in scale and drastically different in design from the original, which was met with fierce opposition from historic preservationists when it was unveiled last year.

    The revised plan for the Washington Street site, however, was greeted with enthusiasm and the final vote was met with applause.
    "The overall scheme is wonderful. (It) offers variety in scale and materials that accurately reflects the district," commission chairman David Abramson said.
    Designed by noted Princeton architect Michael Graves, the 150,000-square-foot addition will feature a vaulted copper roof - described as "the mother of all arches" - and dramatic skylights that will house galleries, offices and a 350-seat auditorium. A smaller wing with an illuminated tower will be built at Central Avenue and Washington Street, and a parking deck will hug the corner of Central and University avenues.

    Default Nets Dominate Newark Skyline

    by Net Income on Oct 6, 2010 3:45 PM EDT


    New Jersey Nets

    View full size photo サ


    The Nets began to roll out its latest billboard campaign Wednesday, placing giant figures of Nets players and Avery Johnson on sides of Newark's tallest buildings.

    A towering figure (100' x 150') of Brook Lopez is already on side the IDT Building at 520 Broad Street, with the tagline "Experience Something Big." Devin Harris will be showcased on the Robert Treat Hotel. with the tagline, "Experience It" and Johnson, Lopez, Harris, Troy Murphy and Derrick Favors will stand on the 494 Broad Street building along with "Experience Newark's Newest Residents."

    On Wednesday, Terrence Williams got first-hand experience in how easy it is to get to the Prudential Center from Manhattan ...and his very first train ride ever.

    "We are in Newark, we are ready to play, and we want fans to experience Nets Basketball," said Brett Yormark, in explaining the marketing promotion.

    T-Will Takes a Train Ride

    By Ben Couch
    October 6, 2010

    NEWARK, N.J.—There’s a first time for everything, and Wednesday meant Terrence Williams’ initial experience with not only NJ Transit, but also taking a train.

    The Nets’ second-year swingman spent the afternoon sampling the route from New York’s Penn Station to Newark’s Penn Station, smoothly making a 25-minute trip to the Prudential Center.

    “This is definitely way better than I thought,” said Williams, from a window seat. “I might actually take this to the game instead of driving. There’s no train in Seattle. They’ve got a light rail transit now, but I never took that. I always had cars.”

    Led by YES Network announcer Jessica Taff, whose crew was filming for a TV segment, Williams began his trek at NJ Transit’s direct entrance to the ticketing concourse, located at the corner of 7th Ave. and W 31st St. Traveling down the staircase, Williams became one of 81,000 daily commuters to utilize NJ Transit.

    Williams shuffled into the ticket line, waiting his turn and purchasing a one-way ticket ($5.00) before making his way to Track 1, where he boarded the 3:30 p.m. Northeast Corridor No. 3855. Easily finding a seat among the afternoon travelers, Williams commented on the ease and speed of the commute, at one point roping a few of his fellow riders into committing to attend a game.

    “It’s only 20 minutes to get there,” Williams explained. “It’s better than waiting 40 minutes in traffic to be late.”
    Upon arriving in Newark, Williams began to be recognized, holding the door for middle-aged women and offering pounds to teenage boys as he made his way toward the street. He made sure to stop by Dunkin’ Donuts before heading along the short, two-block walk to the Prudential Center.

    Quickly covering the distance, Williams soon posed with the arena behind him, armed now with the knowledge that he’s got another option on gameday

    Default Shaquille O誰eal striving to keep the Nets in Newark

    1 day, 14 hour(s) ago

    Shaquille O誰eal striving to keep the Nets in Newark
    A gigantic kid from Jersey may well be added to the long list of jersey people who have been against the nets been taken away from Newark to New York, Brooklyn.

    Shaquille O誰eal, in a recent conference, indicated that he would lend a hand to negotiate an arrangement to have the Nets not leave Newark, the location where Shaq had lived for the first 15 years of his life. He even presented himself and clarified that he would be willing to run the team once he had retired.

    He further spoke of the idea that the new proprietor should combine ideas with the person who had built the massive stadium and see if they could keep the Nets where they belong.

    The big O誰eal was truly not thrilled by the possibility of them moving and thought that if the two of them could work hand in hand, they can perhaps succeed in making sure that the Nets did not go anywhere.

    He expressed his personal interest in the idea by hinting that he would come down and join them in the capacity as a general manager. He looked determined in his words and more than willing to translate them into action once the first chance of doing that came his way.

    He has held a strong opinion in recent past that states that the Russian owner of the N.J Nets must synchronize his ideas with the builder of the historical venue while obtaining help from other people who could also influence the decision. He has faith that this could benefit the situation at hand.

    The Russian owner, Mikhail P. and the owner of the New Jersey Devils, J.Vanderbeek already have a settlement that allows the Nets to remain in N.J. They would stay at the Prudential Centre for a minimum of a couple of years or most definitely till 2012 when the basketball stadium in Brooklyn is ready.

    The Celtics arranged to have Shaq sign with them in the off season to take part in an exhibition game against N.J Nets that took place on the 6th of October 2010. It was played in Newark, where O誰eal still has quite a bit of family left. He had a suitcase of memories that were connected with the city. Shaq felt a stronger connection to the motives and ideas he had. Visiting Newark re-established his faith in what he had believed in and the plans he had imagined to execute.

    The big bad Shaq had also opined in the recent past that he had a strong belief in the proprietor and has taken a liking to the Russian. When he had spoken to the press he had openly told everyone that the nets had a strong owner and a beautiful arena, and would like it to remain where it has been.

    That wasn't the only reason for the keenness which Shaq had been showing as he has been trying to save the Russian a great deal of solid cash. He wanted to make the owner of the Nets reverse his decision of spending $300m more on a stadium that he had planned to erect in Brooklyn.

    All O誰eal had wished for was that he would stay and wait on him, and then make him general manager. Shaq had only 741 days remaining and he would be available by that crucial time.

    However, Mikhail has told reporters that the whole notion of purchasing the nets had been founded on them being relocated to Brooklyn. He added that he had no qualms with the nets staying in Newark, but just till the new Barclays Centre Stadium was being constructed.

    He made clear that he had his commitment focused on New Jersey and to the fans. The Russian hoped that the fans, whether they are from New Jersey, New York or beyond, would remain with the nets' team that is new, young, strong and starving to win even after their relocation.

    As for the generous offer that Shaq made, Mikhail opined that he would always be allowed to push for the spot and encouraged him to send his personal resume to the GM that was currently running his show.
