Fairstead and LIHC Investment Group have announced plans for a six-story mixed-use development at 127 Orchard Street in Newark, New Jersey. Part of Essex Plaza, a 13-building residential complex, the new structure will replace a surface-level parking lot and yield 365,000 square feet with 241 units. Forty percent of these will be set aside as affordable units for households and individuals at 60 percent area median income (AMI). In practice, that equates an annual income of $64,400 for a four-person household.
Newark’s historic Walker House at 540 Broad Street is now home to a local brewery and a 22,000-square-foot indoor rock-climbing gym, the latest phase of a multimillion-dollar redevelopment plan led by LMXD, Prudential Financial Inc., and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. Located in the heart of downtown, Newark Local Beer and Method Climbing + Fitness sit below 20 stories of rentals that debuted in 2020.
L+M Development Partners, Type A Projects, and MSquared recently closed on $42 million in construction financing to complete a 78-unit affordable housing project in Newark, New Jersey. The property will occupy a portion of an existing residential complex at 250 Georgia King Village in the city’s Fairmount neighborhood.
The Newark Planning Board has approved an 11-building mixed-use complex located on the former Newark Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium campus. The 10.5-acre development site hugs the shore of the Passaic Riverfront and will be completed in nine distinct phases as CitiSquare Newark.
