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.
A Staten Island-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 448 Clove Road, in Port Richmond, on Staten Island’s North Shore. The project will measure 2,749 square feet. There will be a 916 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by a single residential unit on each of the floors above. The apartments should average 917 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Ryan & Vaccaro is the architect of record. The 32-foot-wide, 3,575-square-foot property is vacant.
When city planners unveiled the new zoning for East Harlem at a community board meeting last month, neighbors wanted to know how many new apartments would grow, and how many people could potentially be displaced. Now the city has revealed estimates of how the rezoning would reshape the upper Manhattan neighborhood in a new set of zoning documents.
In August, the owners of the Key Food at 801 Washington Avenue in Crown Heights announced plans to shutter the store on the corner of Lincoln Place to make way for a residential building. Now applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for the nine-story project, which will have a main address at 805 Washington Avenue.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 536 East 183rd Street, in the Belmont section of the Bronx. The project will measure 15,181 square feet, featuring 1,255 square feet of ground- and cellar-level retail space, followed by residential units on the second through fifth floors. The apartments should averge 998 square feet apiece, which means they will likely be geared towards families. Midtown South-based Issac & Stern Architects is the architect of record. The 3,807-square-foot plot is vacant.
