    Did some digging and came up with nothing, but towerpower found this a ways back so this is definitely thanks to him; if it's already posted in here I missed it (looks like the new Prudential building poking it's head on the upper left):

    Retail Roundup, Newark: Ono Grinds Poké, Suite 304 Lounge, More

    By

    March 15, 2017






    Not too long ago, Newark was considered to be a food desert and had a Downtown that was criticized by some for lacking quality cuisine. But just days after the opening of the city’s first Whole Foods and the announcement that an Eataly-style Italian Market is on the way, Newark’s food and retail scene continues to explode.

    One of Newark’s newest rental buildings, the Halston Flats at 1227 Raymond Boulevard, will soon be getting some Hawaiian flare. Ono Grinds Poké will be setting up shop in one of the building’s three storefronts, looking to put a twist on traditional poké. Customers will be able to customize either a poké bowl or Sushiritto (sushi burrito) from start to finish at the restaurant.

    Diners will choose their base, their protein, and one of Ono’s seven house-made sauces to include in their meal. Co-Founder Daniela Hoyos says that the restaurant looks to provide the ultimate poké experience and will be hand selecting sustainable fish every morning and adding tons of fresh mix-ins as part of their quest for the highest quality ingredients.

    Besides Pokč bowls, Ono will feature other items like customizable organic Açaí and Pitaya smoothie bowls. Hoyos says the restaurant will open sometime this Summer.



    A new Krauszer’s location will also be taking up residence in the Halston Flats, which will fill out all of the retail in the building’s base. The convenience, deli and grocery chain seems to be betting big on downtown Newark; they opened one spot at 216 Market Street back in 2015 and are bringing another one to the Teachers Village project later this year.



    A new lounge and restaurant is coming along right on the Downtown/University Heights border. 304 University Avenue, formerly home to Skipper’s Plane Street Pub, was sold in December last year to RBH Market Street West, a subsidiary of the locally-based RBH Group. Since then, the ground floor pub has undergone a renovation.

    The space is being turned into Suite 304 Bar and Lounge, which will feature a menu that leans towards Italian style. A walk past the site shows that construction is humming right along and owner Sam Siino says the restaurant expects to open their doors for food on March 20th and hopes to have their liquor license by April 1st.



    And finally, a new gym facility is looking to open in the heart of Downtown next month. The newest Planet Fitness location at 520 Broad Street is hoping to welcome residents on April 1st and the gym is having a Pre-Grand Opening sale on memberships through March 15th, with offers as low as $10/month.

    New Parking Garage With Retail Space Planned For Downtown Newark

    By

    March 28, 20170



    47-63 Green Street | Credit: Google Street ViewPlans are moving forward for a new parking, office, and commercial facility in Downtown Newark.

    The Newark Parking Authority (NPA) is planning to construct the complex at 47-63 Green Street, a lot that stretches south along Mulberry Street to Franklin Street in the East Ward’s Living Downtown Redevelopment Plan Area. According to a legal notice from July 2016, it is slated to be a mixed-use structure that would include a garage with over 640 parking spaces and ground floor retail space. Plus, the Mulberry Street side would contain the new headquarters of the NPA, along with a municipal court and office. The NPA is currently based within the Robert Treat Center near Military Park, and the Newark Municipal Court is situated next door to the property at 31 Green Street.

    The tract, which is located just steps from Newark City Hall, the Newark City Hall Annex, and the historic United States Post Office and Courthouse, currently contains a surface parking lot. A large abandoned structure used to be located in the middle of the lot, but it was torn down several years ago.

    As part of the project, there are plans for the City of Newark, which owns the property, to sell it to the NPA for $1. The ordinance that if passed by the Newark Municipal Council, would authorize the sale, states that “the City has determined that the remediation and redevelopment of the property along the lines of the proposal will not only contribute to the reinvigoration of the City but also provide the City with a public benefit.” It also mentions that half of the parking spaces would be reserved during work hours for City employees at no cost to them or to the City, except while events are taking place at the nearby Prudential Center.

    Variances regarding insufficient ground floor height, lack of stairway bulkhead on the street, insufficient active ground floor level uses, and permitting ground floor office use was unanimously approved with conditions by the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment in July 2016, according to city records, which also show the the authority agreed to comply with directives from the City’s Department of Engineering and the Division of Water and Sewer Utilities. The records state that public parking and offices in the building’s lobby were prohibited under the redevelopment plan.

    Todd Helmer is listed as the project architect, while Brian Grant and Duane Nelson are listed as the project engineers.

    It's already a tax exempt municipal lot. Adding new retail spaces and a garage that can generate revenue is a good thing, no?

    I vaguely remember that. I think this location is better since it still leaves the chance for some vertical development for those parcels you're talking about.

    Unfortunately, I read on another thread that they want to take some of those flat parcels by the arena and turn them into a VIP lot, which is complete and utter crap. At least a garage has the potential for retail. A surface lot is the single worst kind of urban 'development', especially in a downtown. That's why Mulberry Commons needs to get built, it can take the bite out of the surface lots there and spur more real development.

    Default NJPAC Tower Update

    I passed by the site over the weekend and the tower is rising quickly. They're now up to the fifth floor slab, so it looks like they're averaging about a floor per week. At that rate, the structure should be topping off by late July/early August.

    Looks like the site prep phase is just about over and equipment from Linde-Griffith has arrived in preparation for piling.
