Wok to Walk Planned for Downtown Newark


Newark, New Jersey: A location of an international chain of restaurants serving Asian cuisine is reportedly opening in Newark.

A Wok to Walk location is planned for the Prudential Shoppes on Broad development at 679-705 Broad Street, between Cedar Street and Prudential Drive, in Downtown Newark. According to a real estate listing from Jones Lang LaSalle, the restaurant is slated to open in Building B of the development, between the Nike Factory Store and Blaze Pizza. 

Originally, documents from CBRE showed that a French Fry Heaven franchise was at lease with the company to open in the space, but plans for the location were never realized. 

Wok to Walk is based in the Netherlands, and has locations in 15 countries. All of the company's three American locations are in Manhattan. Customers can choose a base like egg noodles or white rice, toppings like smoked turkey and pineapple, and a sauce.

The Shoppes on Broad complex opened across from Military Park in 2015 as part of Prudential Financial's new office complex. Qdoba Mexican Eats, Starbucks Coffee, Halsey Cleaners, Halsey Newsstand, Ron Tomson, and Bright Horizons have all opened in the development, and The Halal Guys, Grabbagreen, and European Wax Center are coming soon. Additional space is still available for lease.

Could NJ Transit's Newark Drawbridge Be Replaced?


Newark, New Jersey: A bridge used by hundreds of commuter trains a week may be replaced.

According to a legal notice issued Thursday, New Jersey Transit has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for "conceptutal design services for the replacement of the Undergrade Bridge 7.48", which is also known as the Newark Drawbridge, over the Passaic River. The agency is looking for proposals from qualified consulting firms with "related experience of a similar magnitude" that have "the intention of negotiating a contract with the organization whose qualifications and proposal best serves the needs of NJ Transit".

A replacement study regarding the bridge was one of the projects affected by the Transportation Trust Fund shutdown earlier this year.

The Newark Drawbridge connects Newark with Hudson County, and is used by NJ Transit's Montclair-Boonton and Morris and Essex Lines. Built in 1903, the bridge sits just south of the Route 280 Stickel Bridge.

A preproposal conference will be held at NJ Transit's Newark headquarters on Wednesday, December 21st at 10:30am, according to the notice, and a site visit will be held later that morning at 11:30am. Proposals are due at the beginning of February, according to the agency website.
