NEWARK, N.J. | 577 Broad Street | 520 FT | 45 FLOORS

https://jerseydigs.com/arc-tower-newark/

Hearing Scheduled for 45-Story Arc Tower Proposal in Newark








By Chris Fry
November 1, 2022


Quote:
A tower in the works for several properties along Broad Street in Downtown Newark will soon be the subject of debate as the sky-high proposal would require demolishing several structures that have stood in the neighborhood for decades.

On November 2, Newark’s Landmarks & Historic Preservation Commission will be holding a meeting to discuss several lots at 569-571-577 Broad Street. The parcels, situated about halfway between Military Park and Harriet Tubman Park, currently house a vacant two-story retail structure and an empty rowhouse along one of Newark’s most prominent roads.

The properties have long been targeted by developers and are currently owned by an LLC registered out of Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. The two unoccupied structures would be torn down under the plan, with the neighboring 567 Broad Street and the Washington Florist building remaining.
Quote:
The current plan, dubbed Arc Tower in documents submitted to the city, would rise 45 stories and 520 feet at the highest point. The proposal has been drawn up by New York-based INOA Architecture, who have designed several other high-profile projects in Newark including the Halo and a 203-unit development at 50 Sussex Avenue.

344 residential units are included in the Arc Tower proposal, breaking down as 94 studios, 175 one-bedrooms, 73 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedroom spaces. The ground floor would feature 1,800 square feet of retail space situated along Broad Street plus a first-floor “mezzanine” consisting of a co-working amenity for residents.

The project as pitched does not require any existing variances from the Broad Street Station Redevelopment Plan according to the developer’s application but does require demolition authorization from Landmarks & Historic Preservation Commission. Further approval would also be needed from Newark’s planning board before the tower can move forward.

For now, the Landmarks & Historic Preservation Commission will be holding their November 2 session on Zoom to discuss the Arc Tower plan. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and can be joined by members of the public at this link or by using the Webinar ID 811 2402 3443.

The tower looks way taller than 520 FT, but nonetheless exciting and I love the design. Looks like Halo's cousin .

I agree, still great for Newark in either case.

Kind of reminds of a proposal in Austin but I forget the name.

Yeah, its in the perfect location to add some juice to the skyline. I love the small footprint, and the lack of a large parking podium base. I hate to see that in central cities.

I immediately thought the same thing. Reminds me a lot of Block 16:

Great for Newark. Looks more like a commercial building than residential — not a bad thing.

Once one rises others follow. Between this and Halo, Newark's skyline will be getting a major boost, one overdue for almost 90 years. The current tallest was built in the 30's as an example (National Newark Building).

Hopefully in time, a Jersey City style transformation occurs. Newark's CBD is also very expansive, so plenty of areas for new towers to rise.

^ Yeah, I do wish the two projects weren't as similarly looking, but great either way. There are some parking lots in the area that could be developed.

This is one gorgeous tower and i wouldn't mind having the skyline bookended by similar towers. They're almost a mile apart

Still very similar, moreso when you consider there aren’t many skyscrapers on the Newark skyline to begin with. And further, I don’t believe that one firm can only design one decent look. The buildings are fine, but one or the other could have looked equally nice with a different design.

I agree.

If this were being built in Atlanta, Dallas, etc., it would be front-page news.

Apparently the demo permits were not approved for this location via the Landmarks committee. Citing that the structures are of historical importance (they aren't... they are rubbish).

Hopefully this project will still pull through.

For 520 ft, it’s very impressive! Hope it gets built as well as the future tallest building in NJ right in Newark!

This would be a nice complement to The Halo, which is rising. Hopefully this can pull through. Newark is criminally underrated n that it doesn't get the attention in deserves and way overdue to be the next Jersey City in terms of both a destination to live and business. If anything, it can exceed Jersey City, in theory. It has the transportation framework, the culture, the history... to make for a kick-ass 21st Century city. It just has to get past the regressive local officials who want to keep Newark in the 70's.

Nice thing with Newark is also the amount of open parcels and lack of obstructions that wouldn't make a project be so difficult to establish. Just has to survive the local officials.
