NEWARK, NJ | NJPAC Development | 6 Acres

NJPAC Envisions Major Six-Acre Development in Downtown Newark







Quote:
The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) has announced plans to extend Mulberry Street north to Rector Street and have this new block become the focus of a 6.1-acre development initiative. A new page on NJPAC’s website, “What’s Next for Newark?,” features a rendering of this proposal from Manhattan-based rePLACE Urban Studio and mentions that if the project comes to fruition, it would be “an open, welcoming ‘public realm’ where the arts and artists can come outside and reach people on the street.”

Currently, the site of a parking lot, the Mulberry Street extension would be lined with two five-story or six-story mixed-use buildings that would include apartments atop restaurants and “cultural assets.” Meanwhile, according to NJPAC, a high-rise development with apartments and retail space is in the works closer to Center Street while 24 townhouses are envisioned as well.


[...]


Then, in May, Newark’s Chief Development Officer, Carmelo Garcia, said that NJPAC was “working on a master plan and we’re excited to see what that’s going to unveil.” The President and CEO of the Newark Alliance, Aisha Glover, also told Jersey Digs at the time that NJPAC released a Request for Proposals (RFP) in order to find a developer for the six-acre property.

“The visioning for that site is pretty amazing and it will really help extend Mulberry Commons and activate a lot of the underdeveloped space and parking lots on that end,” said Glover, who confirmed that a residential component was in the works. When asked about the RFP over the summer, a spokesperson for NJPAC said that “it’s still early in the process.”

The new page on NJPAC’s website does not include a timeline for the latest proposed projects, nor is there any mention of how the proposed apartments would be priced. It does state, however, that this is “an ambitious plan, but the Newark real estate market has incredible momentum right now.”

Officials Reveal Next Phase Of The New Jersey Performing Arts Center Waterfront Masterplan



Quote:
Newark city officials have revealed plans for the next phase of redevelopment that will surround the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and aim to transform the city’s entire downtown area. The initiative is formally known as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center Waterfront Masterplan and calls for the creation of a mixed-use urban center and rejuvenation of the blighted Passaic Riverfront.

As reported by Jersey Digs, the next phase will focus on the redevelopment of 6.1 acres surrounding the performing arts center into a vibrant mixed-use corridor. This includes an extension of Mulberry Street across what is now a parking lot, through to Rector Street.

Two low-rise apartment buildings will bookend one side of the corridor along Mulberry Street. At the Center Street boundary, plans include the construction of a high-rise apartment building facing the Passaic River. Each of the residential buildings would support retail, dining, and entertainment components on its ground level.

A second entertainment property, currently in pre-development stages, could take shape north of the existing Performing Arts Center. Additional retail, residential, and entertainment components will flank a new public esplanade along the Passaic River. This will be the first time in Newark’s modern history that the public will have open access to the riverfront.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and James Stewart Polshek & Partners worked in collaboration to design and finalize the original Waterfront Masterplan. New renderings for components within the 6.1-acre expansion are credited to rePLACE Urban Studio.

Neither the design team nor associated officials have confirmed a timeline for the project.

Its been a long time coming. Newark has tons of potential. Only a matter of time before it becomes then next Jersey City with respect to development output. Fortunately, the leadership seems to in-tune with it as well. A far cry from the Sharpe James era which kept the city backwards and full of corruption. Ras Baraka is also a better mayor, much better than the predecessors, especially that hack Cory Booker who abandoned Newark due to his eye-popping ego.

But yeah, good times in store for Newark.

This is a very nice, dense project.
I'm concerned about McCarter "HIGHWAY"
Looks like a good place for some pedestrianization and a well landscaped waterfront park.
Road Diet!
A tree-lined BOULEVARD with landscaped medians and protected bike lanes.
If they're going to do this
do it right
Call Mayor Pete!
If anyone is due
it's NEWARK!

NJPAC Addition Plans Proposing 300-plus Residential Units Will Come Before Newark Planning Board

July 29, 2022 at 4:58 PM

NEWARK, NJ — New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) officials’ plans to construct two buildings that would bring 300-plus residential units and commercial space to downtown Newark will come before the city’s Central Planning Board next week.

NJPAC officials submitted an application to the city’s Central Planning Board, proposing to construct a 22-story high-rise building with 168 residential units, 15 maisonette/townhouse residential units and 186,026 square feet of ground floor commercial/retail space. The application also calls for the construction of a seven-story mid-rise building, which would include 145 residential units and 152,952-square-feet of commercial/retail space. The expansive project is planned to be constructed on 1-19, 21-43 Center and 24, 26-34 Rector streets.

Additionally, NJPAC’s application calls for a parking lot to be reconfigured to provide 149 parking spaces including an area within the lot to be used for bus parking.

The proposed project falls in line with NJPAC’s plans to transform a portion of downtown Newark by expanding the area's arts and education district. NJPAC officials announced last year plans to spur a $150 million development aimed to create a "vibrant new neighborhood" of low-rise and high-rise multifamily buildings, retail establishments, restaurants and cultural spaces on a portion of NJPAC’s riverfront campus.

“Contributing to the ongoing revitalization of Newark’s downtown has always been central to the arts center’s mission as the city’s anchor cultural institution,” NJPAC President and CEO John Schreiber said in a statement. “This plan is a thoughtful, curated mix of residential buildings, retail environments and cultural resources. We want this new neighborhood to be an exciting place to live, as well as a uniquely engaging destination.”

The vision for the project was welcomed by Newark officials.

“The redevelopment of NJPAC’s campus will be a game-changing step forward for the evolution of Newark’s downtown, creating an ideal live-work-play environment in the city’s heart — and making more affordable housing available for families of all kinds,” Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement.

Residents can hear this application and provide public comment on it at the city’s Central Planning Board virtual meeting that will be held Monday, Aug 1. Residents can access the virtual meeting by following the link here.

They really should have allowed the towers to go higher here.
