    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.

    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!
    Doesn't Newark already lead the country in per-capita public housing? Isn't a good chunk of the city west of downtown already affordable housing developments. Granted, if this new project is dense and mixed-use, it certainly beats the existing suburban garden apartment projects that seem to make up most of the city's affordable housing. However, it seems as if in the near future the city is headed towards a gentrified 1.5 mile slice bound by MLK, McCarter, and 280, a mix of gentrification and ethnic neighborhoods in the Ironbound, and a vast sea of public housing everywhere else. Not sure that's good for the city.

    A very common complaint about any and all downtown development is that it does not benefit the rest of the city, no matter how large or small it is. Particularly at issue is the West Ward around Springfield Avenue, which was the epicenter of the riots. Large sections of the streetscape still bare the blatantly visible scars of the riots of 1967, almost 48 years ago. Any development that fills in those scars should be seen as positives as long as they create a pedestrian friendly streetscape. There will always be a need for section 8 housing and a large part of the stock has to be demolished soon, but they have to be relocated somewhere. This will provide 324 units to allow that to happen.

    Also RBH's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RBHGROUP



    If we see this happen, Newark's developments will be UNSTOPPABLE! The placement would mean that the entire block would be history, which is currently only occupied by the Gallery Afrerro, a series of several storefront galleries. The placement of the tower is correct and if it actually happens, it could give Jersey City a run for its money in terms of the tallest building in New Jersey. Other renderings for the site called 101 Market Street showed a 40 story tower that was active as recently as mid-2012.

    http://looplink.newjersey.cbre.us/ll...Market-Street/
    The site hosting that rendering is an active real estate listing for a 1,000,000 square foot office tower and was updated 6 days ago.
    If so, then the majority residential project that RBH claims could have
    705 units of residential space
    130 Room Hotel
    161,070 sq ft retail
    110,000 sq ft office
    might be something else entirely...

    I think 2015 will be a big year for Newark and most Northeastern cities like 2014 was a big year for Midwestern Cities...

    Honestly, I am very interested to see how this plays out downtown. You have the Prudential, Rutgers, RBH, Hanini and Fidelco conducting major projects but its the proposed/indevelopment items that I am the most curious about (lets call it healthy skepticism). I want to see if RBH can find the anchor it needs to do 4 corners or if NJPAC ever moves or even Rector. The issue is that Edison and Pepe Lopez are nothign more than parking slum lords and own the best real estate in town, if you could get them to even do what Harrison is doing it would be a game changer...just frustrating.

    Is the Panasonic signage on the 101 Market rendering outdated? or is that new? Maybe a suggestion that Panasonic might expand into an additional location as Prudential did? That would be sweet.

    That render is still the old one from 2012 or earlier from before Panasonic decided to build their own building. If Prudential decides to build their own building for the 200,000 square feet of space they still need at Gateway, it would likely be the second one on their site they already own in place of the temporary buildings.

    The best chance for this tower is as residential and a hotel, particularly since Teacher's Village 2 blocks away has been instantly selling out its units. There is a huge pent up demand for residential here in Newark due to its lower costs and proximity to New York City and its transit system.

    Passed the Cablevision site yesterday. Looks interesting what they are doing with it. Definitely odd construction.

    Red face Newark is more popular than Honolulu, Hawaii!!!

    Website ranks Honolulu below Newark, N.J. in popularity

    If Hotels.com believes Newark is more popular than Honolulu, that is really saying something, although it is likely because of the airport hotels...

    Honolulu has dropped three spots to No. 40 on the Hotels.com list of most popular U.S. destinations, behind 39th-ranked Newark, N.J.

    The travel website's Hotel Price Index for 2014 lists the top 50 destinations in the U.S. as well as the top 50 international cities for American travelers for the calendar year.
    Las Vegas, Nevada, New York City and Orlando, Florida were the three top cities on the U.S. list, while London England, Paris, France and Toronto, Canada, topped the international list, respectively.
    Among U.S. destinations, California, Texas and Florida are home to nearly half of the 25 most popular domestic cities, while Denver, Colorado and Charlotte, N. Carolina saw the most growth over the year.
    Mexico saw the most growth among foreign destinations.

    Newark mansion undergoes 'miracle' restoration as affordable apartment building

    After being abandoned and falling into disrepair, the historic Wright-Clark Mansion in Newark’s Forest Hill neighborhood has been restored as a seven-unit affordable housing apartment building.
    “When something like this comes along…it kind of energizes you,” said Del Tufo, president of the Newark Preservation & Landmarks Committee, who lives near the property.
    “You have to aim higher,” Del Tufo added. “You can’t settle for mediocrity.”
    Del Tufo was among the attendees at an event today to celebrate the $2.5 million project from Montclair-based RPM Development Group, transforming what had been an eyesore in the community into a model for historic preservation.
    When people ask him about restoring their properties, Robert Hartman, a member of the city’s Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission, said he would direct them to the mansion.
    “It’s something that we can all point to and say this is how it’s done correctly,” Hartman said. “This is what we should all be doing.”
    In addressing the crowd at today’s event, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka stressed the need for more restoration efforts in the city.

    “I’m excited about this project,” Baraka said. “It’s a beautiful place here.”
    The building’s new tenants are expected to move in over the coming weeks, with monthly rents ranging from $680 for a studio apartment to $1,385 for a three-bedroom unit. The tenants were selected via a state lottery program, and preference was given to individuals affected by Hurricane Sandy. The project was financed in part with state and city funding.
    Built in the early 20th Century, the mansion, located at 527 Mount Prospect Avenue, traces its history to the Clark Thread and Nairn Linoleum Newark Co. industrial families of Newark.

    There are several other beautiful abandoned mansions to be renovated. This is a great way to preserve them!

    Global transport group signs on to One Newark Center

    Mack-Cali Realty Corp. and its joint venture partner, The Praedium Group, recently announced that global-transportation company Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. signed a new lease for 19,306 square feet at One Newark Center in Newark.
    Located in the heart of Newark's downtown, the 24-story, 416,429-square-foot office building is 98 percent leased. The Class A property offers tenants an attached parking garage, cafeteria, 24-hour security, redundant power systems, and is in close proximity to The Metropolitan Room at the Newark Club and the Seton Hall Law School. The area boasts increased residential housing, restaurants, entertainment and proximity to the court system — making it an ideal location. In addition, One Newark Center is strategically located one block from Newark Penn Station — a great asset for commuting staff and visitors.

    That is beyond fantastic!!!! It is so much better than the possible 4 story disappointment we were beginning to expect. I love the fact that it has retail stores along the entire ground floor facade because the area across the street is an unbroken row of abandoned and boarded up buildings. There are at least 20 of them along that street. Hopefully this will kick off a renovation of them!

    This really builds out the southern halsey corridor but everything is going to come down to connecting all that has happened at Edison and Lafayette with this to connect these developments.

    I believe that he is referring to that single story strip of retail stores that will be on the other side of the Prudential Center. The only thing that will ever connect the two is if they build a very large parking garage along Lafayette street lined with ground floor retail space. That would require convincing J&L who owns the huge lot to build that garage. What is more important is that the Teacher's Village building will place 7 or 8 retail stores and numerous pedestrians across the street from a row of abandoned brick buildings that also line the very narrow Treat Place. If that happens, it will allow Teacher's village to connect with the local shoppers along Broad Street.

    The following images are from last Wednesday, January 28th, and the recent snow storms.
    http://urbanismvsmodernism.blogspot....l?view=sidebar

    Starting, as usual, with the Prudential Tower.










    Yes, Virginia. That is the metal backing for the green wall that will cover the entire blank portion of the garage.








    Moving on to the Ironbound

    This building is just outside of Penn Station and will hopefully receive the same facade treatment as so many other buildings along Ferry Street


    Oliver Street School is moving along.




    That building on Elm Street next to the train tracks is moving closer to completion and eternal ugliness.






    I believe that this one, at the corner of Green and Bruen Streets, will be 5 stories high based on the stairs and elevator, and will hopefully look better.




    A nearby house is somewhere along its renovation path. Streetview shows that it had plain tan plastic siding very recently, whatever happened to it.


    Despite several news articles that were claiming that the 94 room Carvi Hotel would start last July, the old crappy houses remain on site. The architect is Comito Associates, who do really beautiful work with glass and steel.


    And now a look at Ferry Street. It was about 30 degrees out, hence the general lack of people.







    Work is underway at the storefront in the middle to put something in there. Nothing appears to be happening in the corner one.




    This is one of the few buildings left in the neighborhood with its original upper level facade. A quick paint job and some new windows would make it a beautifully preserved example of Old Newark.



















    From the snow storms. We only go about 4 inches compared with the expected 2 feet that was supposed to fall.













    In other news, the Springfield Avenue Marketplace is progressing nicely. The Shoprite building is about halfway framed and the five story apartment building that lines the Jones Street side is about 3 stories high currently. Due to the horrendously dirty windows on the Rutgers shuttle bus, no pictures.

    Also, while I was photographing the Prudential Tower from the Military Park side, a woman started talking to me about it and a few other projects and seemed excited about them. According to her, STARBUCKS WILL REOPEN THEIR STORE NEAR THE BROAD AND MARKET CORNER, presenting the idea at a planning board meeting! If this is true, it would mean that Newark's developments have progressed far enough to warrant the desire to come back to there, despite the previous failure. That rarely ever happens! While people could argue all day about the taste and price of their coffee, one thing is certain. Coffee shops and similar street cafe businesses are critical to attracting a huge amount of street life in the immediate vicinity. With any amount of luck, they will place tables and chairs outside or even have a folding facade, which will further increase the effect.

    The many adjustments to Newark's Zoning Ordinances, which have been unchanged since the 1950's, will be voted on Wednesday at 12:30 PM. If they pass, that will be the final stage to implement them and eliminate several odd regulations and put numerous development plans to work. It would also eliminate the need to get variances for many details that are regularly accepted and encouraged, such as parking for small buildings and unnecessary side yard setbacks in business districts. At the same time it will require minimum amounts of clear usable windows areas as a percentage of the facade area, and permit solar panels and community gardens. Once put into place, it will make it far easier for small developers to carry out projects without lengthy variance and review delays.
    http://planning.ci.newark.nj.us/wed-...-adopt-zoning/

    Also, the city has completely redone its website, and apparently eliminated the Planning Board Minutes. They used to be a good source about upcoming projects.
