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.

  1. Okay..four-story parking garage is not connect, but 2.3 million-square-foot is wanted in. (Newark)

  2. This is ridiculous! You have ACRES of vacant surface parking lots along Orange street. You have a vacant stretch of Broad street between Broad st Station and Broadway. Vacant for DECADES!
    I’ve lived in Newark all my life. Developers propose here & disappear!! I guarantee after they demolish the stadium (are they protecting Somerset or Montclair from future Newark team?) The land will be vacant for another 20 years along with Westinghouse!
