Last week, the city of Newark announced that a 7.5-acre, 2.3-million-square-foot mixed-use development is in the works at 450 Broad Street. That’s downtown, on the current site of the Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. The project will include residential units, office space, retail, and cultural space, Jersey Digs reported. The number of units wasn’t disclosed, but the site could easily accommodate over 1,000 of them. Lotus Equity Group is the developer and Practice for Architecture Urbanism is designing the project’s master plan. The 6,200-seat baseball stadium will be demolished. The four-story parking garage just south of it isn’t part of the site.
Brooklyn-based property owner Angle Martinez has filed applications for a three-story, 3,956-square-foot office building at 156 11th Street, located on the southern end of Gowanus. The ground through third floors will contain commercial-office space. The cellar will be available as accessory space to the offices above. Mohammad H. Baalbaki’s Staten Island-based Baalbaki & Associates Engineering is the applicant of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits were filed in September. The Fourth Avenue/Ninth Street stop on the R, F, and G trains is three blocks away.
