    As the housing market improves, many cheap bayonnes will be bought and consolidated into larger parcels for residential buildings.

    Can confirm that in two separate mornings this week, there was a work truck at the shaq site, clearing out the rubbish behind the gated area and going inside the building.

    So I went to City Hall yesterday....and spoke to several people... Developers are starting to buy up just about every parcel in Downtown , and there's a growing number of New York developers... About a billion in redevelopment is planned over the next few yrs with some key projects finally breaking ground next yr... Some stalled projects will break ground very soon....

    That's great!! Does that mean that there will be some new skyscrapers built by the end of the decade?

Next to the 3 story Bayonne Box is an underwhelming and rather unattractive charter school which itself was only built 2 or 3 years ago. The Bayonne Box is sandwiched in between these two relatively large buildings on a narrow parcel of land. On the other side of the block, behind the new construction are four other handsome Bayonne Boxes - the larger ones with the brick façade, pitched roofs, large balconies, bay windows, etc. That lot could have accommodated two or three other bayonne boxes of the same architectural style. Now, that block looks absolutely ridiculous. Poor planning. SMH.
    I very much prefer this development to the bayonne boxes. It perfectly wraps that corner!

    Nice to hear! That means that they are actually prepping for the December 16th real groundbreaking.

    Photos: Inside the Hahne's Building in Downtown Newark





    Newark, New Jersey: Construction is well underway on the Express Newark project in the former Hahne & Company Department Store on Broad Street in Downtown Newark. Tours were given on Tuesday of the development, which is located at the corner of New Street. It is scheduled to be completed in 2017.


    When completed, the building will contain a Whole Foods Market location, the third in Essex County. The market will be one of only two supermarkets in Newark's Central Ward. A ShopRite opened along Springfield Avenue in September, and the Pathmark on Bergen Street closed last month.

    "Over the past 30 or 40 years, people have been going to the neighboring towns to shop", said Deputy Mayor Baye Adofo-Wilson, citing Kearny, Montclair, and West Orange. "There really wasn't any place here to shop", he added, saying that now, "Downtown Newark is a place that people want to live and work".

    In addition, the building will be home to mixed-income housing and a new space for the Rutgers University-Newark Department of Arts, Culture, and Media, with a portrait studio, gallery, and an auditorium. Rutgers University-Newark chancellor Nancy Cantor told reporters that she hopes that school's bookstore will move to the Hahne's building.

    The building will also house office space. The first office tenant is expected to be announced this week, according to Jon Cortell with L+M Development Partners, who told Essex County Place that having a Whole Foods Market location in the development attracts other companies.

    Hahne's, once a popular Northern New Jersey department store chain, closed its Newark location in 1987, though to former shoppers, the memories remain.

    The project is being financed by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, Goldman Sachs, Prudential, and Citi.

    Sale of Ironbound lot could pave way for new era in iconic Newark neighborhood

    NEWARK - Bidding has opened on a large piece of property in the Ironbound District that stakeholders say could forever change the course of Newark's most iconic neighborhood.

    The owners of the famed Iberia restaurant placed the 5.2-acre site on the open market earlier this month, and are courting developers who may see it as a prime parcel for a high-rise office or residential tower.

    Frank Giantomasi, a West Orange-based real estate attorney representing the owners in the potential sale, said the site - with frontage on major thoroughfares Market Street and Ferry Street - could be key in the city's plans to attract new professionals seeking both easy access to Newark Penn Station and amenities including restaurants, shopping and nightlife.
    "This could be the first development that truly creates a walking class of commuters," he said.

    While skyscraping buildings are commonplace downtown, the structures have always remained west of Penn Station. Similarly, boons of retail and mixed-use development have popped up downtown around the Prudential Center andMilitary Park, though Giantomasi said similar growth in the Ironbound would open up even greater possibilities.

    "This says positive things for Newark, shows that the development is not all on the downtown side. This is more community development, as opposed to being driven by the arena or the performing arts center," Giantomasi said.

    The Ironbound District, with its vibrant population of Portuguese and Brazilian immigrants living in the dense neighborhoods of brick and clapboard houses, is often counted as among the most unique in all of New Jersey – a distinction locals would like to maintain.

    The Iberia property is currently home to both the restaurant and two storage facilities, but is mostly occupied by blacktop parking spaces, which city officials have often lamented as a deterrent to major development as they look to create a transit-oriented district similar to what has sprung up around the PATH station in Harrison.
    "We're slowly losing against towns like Harrison, Jersey City, Hoboken to develop the area around Penn Station, so we can create the conditions to attract new people,'' East Ward Councilman Augusto Amador told the Star-Ledger last year.

    Development has recently begun to bubble in the area, however, with national chains beginning to appear alongside more deeply entrenched family businesses, and plans for a boutique hotel and new apartment buildings underway.

    Though similar declarations of a new age in the Ironbound have come and gone before, Giantomasi said he believed the neighborhood has too much to offer not to rise to even greater heights.

    "Ferry Street is a unique street in America," he said. "It's the closest thing we have to a Bourbon Street or something like that, with restaurants, nightlife, eating and drinking."

    BTW, I drove by Sussex Ave (the section that is,stupidly called "Gould,Ave"),
    only to continue as a wider Sussex Ave once you go into East Orange. The massive new building going up there has turned out to be a "rental private storage building". Dissapointed.
