    Anybody knows ANYTHING?

    GOOGLE SEARCH COMES UP EMPTY.
    Taxpayers are on hook till 2023 or 9 for this relatively new facility. If they demolish it SOMEONE NEEDS TO GO TO PRISON!

    Anyone know what happened to BURG? Googling, I've found several stories mentioning it opening in the summer of 2014. 6 months later and they aren't open yet, their facebook page doesn't mention anything, and they list a dead weblink.

    Coalition mulls possibilities for 'great urban spaces' along NJ Transit line in Newark, Oranges


    — The mayors of three neighboring cities are expected to speak later this month about how changes to the areas surrounding train stations could potentially help bolster some of the state’s struggling neighborhoods.

    The Urban Essex Coalition for Smart Growth formed in 2013 as a result of the Together North Jersey initiative, which is working to create transit-oriented developments in northern New Jersey. According to the Urban Essex Coalition’s Coordinator Tom Schulze, the group formed after a TNJ recommendation to look into redevelopment options surrounding a string of five train stations along the NJ Transit rail line in Newark, East Orange, and Orange.

    The five-mile stretch encompasses about 62,000 residents across the three municipalities.

    “There is a lot of opportunity for redevelopment and improvement along the line that bisects these communities,” Schulze said in an interview about the work the coalition has been doing over the past year. “Our overarching goal is to improve the area…to encourage great urban spaces.”

    The coalition, which includes the three cities, NJ Transit, and a few dozen area businesses, nonprofits, and colleges, is working to foster mixed-use developments surrounding the Broad Street Station in Newark, City Hall and Brick Church stations in East Orange, the Orange Station near Main Street in Orange, and the Highland Avenue station in the Valley Arts district. The coalition has applied for a $200,000 grant that it says will allow for an in-depth study of the area to determine exactly what types of developments would work best around each station.

    All the more reason why im confused a mormon church was built right across the street from the broad st station and that contaminated site between the 2 is still sitting empty.

    And 200k for the study? What a scam

    They did study the Oranges aswell , I wish they included the former Ampere Station area and the Newark-Paterson Corridor along with the Newark LRT in general... Its a small study , and it seems the Oranges don't have any issues attracting redevelopment lately. Theres several projects within a 10min walk of South Orange , Highland Ave , Orange and Brick Church...

    It is very difficult for municipalities to stop a religious institution from building a facility on property it has already acquired. Of course it has to comply with local zoning rules but the city would have run into trouble if they opposed the church project due to losing the ratable (religious properties are tax exempt) or not wanting a church on that block. I'm as big a Newark booster as you'll find but that city is in absolutely no position to be picky - a Mormon church is better than another vacant lot.

It will be a fantastic example of the redevelopment of a notorious housing project into a truly urban neighborhood, and it sits on a site that is key to reconnecting University Heights with Broad Street Station. Also, Newark has a horrific shortage of good grocery stores, so a supermarket will be a really important addition to the neighborhood. I look forward to photographing this one as it is so close to NJIT.

    Looks like the IZOD center is no more. All shows still scheduled there will be moved to the Rock.

    ^^^Bring em on!!! More events at the Prudential Center means more people will go to Newark's bars and restaurants before and after the events. It also means more usage of Penn Station, which might lead to more improvements there.

    More Scaffolding for 15 Washington




    Cablevision



    Brackets for something, be it a cool facade design or a boring banner. Either way, I do not remember it from the renderings floated a while ago.

    40 Rector Street has not moved, but all of the third floor windows were wide open.




    Once this ticket office and Police Substation goes, prep work can finally start for the NJPAC tower.


    Gap Store is open with a 70% off sale. I hope that is not a sign of desperation...


    Future SoMA/Four Corners Millenium Project site


    Teacher's Village
    According to this brand new article, http://newyork.construction.com/new_...ritty-city.asp

    35 Maiden Lane will have 21 units arriving next month.


    60 units in 245 Halsey will open in October.


    42 William Street will have 40 apartments in the Summer

    Another called 17 William Street will be built and bidding is underway.





    It's official. The Calumet Building is history and instead a very long four story building with 90 units called 17 William Street will be built in its place running all the way to Maiden Lane. Hopefully that will kick off the renovation of the line of about 15 completely abandoned buildings behind it...

    While searching for information on the Four Corners Millenium Project and its at least 40 story building, I happened upon two interesting ordinances.

    https://newark.legistar.com/Legislat...B-55301115E60A
    The block bounded by Mulberry, Lafayette, and Columbia Streets will become something called "Triangle Park" which will be built by the Newark Housing Authority, whether that will be a building or an actual park remains to be seen. The block is directly adjacent to the elevated and internally focusing single level retail strip that may soon be built behind the Prudential Center.

    https://newark.legistar.com/Legislat...E-CCE54D6AC1F0
    A 30 Year Tax abatement might be awarded to a firm called 545 Orange Street Urban Renewal, a non-profit organization which will build 11 buildings containing 324 housing units, all section 8 as part of a development called New Community Manor. The addresses place the development on both sides of Springfield Avenue on a number of vacant lots just past the Shoprite Development. Combined with a few other projects, this is an astounding reconstruction of the streetscape there!

    Details on unit sizes and rents can be seen here: http://affordablehousingonline.com/h...y-Manor/24649/
    There appears to be a lot of mixed up information here or weird coincidences. New Community Manor is the name of a single existing 10 story building just north of the Colonnade at 545 Orange Street. It has 324 Section 8 apartments in that one building. The ordinance for the tax abatement refers to an 11 building, 324 unit project on Springfield Avenue, miles away. All of the sites in question are owned by a group called New Community Corporation http://www.newcommunity.org/ They started in 1968 to rebuild after the riots of 1967 and provide services to needy individuals, including housing for 2600 people. It appears that they are going to expand.

    Great pics tower. As I've said before I'm definitely a fan of the commentary with your pics.

    Concerning Triangle Park it seems that the link you provided shows the city hasn't given up on it, because I know I sure did after this awhile back:

    http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/201...nt_newark.html

    The same way Hahnes/Pru tower beautifully connect University Heights and the downtown core, Triangle Park can be somewhat of a bridge between the concrete deadness from the Rock to Newark Penn (it's not ugly but it lacks life IMO).
