Another New Development Planned for Newark's Ironbound

Newark, New Jersey: The number of residential development projects across the City of Newark continues to increase, and another project has now been proposed for the East Ward.

According to the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment, Yglesias Residential Properties is planning two new buildings for the Ironbound neighborhood. A five story building with 60 residential units and a four story building with six residential units and a gym are proposed for 13-31 New York Avenue and 132 Walnut Street, between New Jersey Railroad Avenue and McWhorter Street. The properties are near the new Ironbound Early Learning Center, and the proposal calls for demolishing an existing house at one of the sites. A parking garage with 59 spaces is also proposed.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment will hear the proposal on Thursday evening at City Hall.
