Lease for New Newark Police Precinct to Cost $1 Each Year

Newark, New Jersey: The lease for a new Newark Police Department facility will begin next month.

According to a legal notice, Broad Street Fidelco will lease the space on the first floor of the recently expanded building at 494 Broad Street, near Riverfront Stadium between Bridge Street and Atlantic Street, for $1 per year, beginning on July 1. The space will be used as a Central Ward mini-precinct, and the lease lasts for three years. A parking garage, a Cablevision call center, and News 12 New Jersey's Newark Newsroom are also located in the building.

Newark Communications Director Frank Baraff told Essex County Place in April that the Internal Affairs Division of the NPD will also be located in the space.

In addition, police office space is planned for the One Theater Square development near the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, in addition to 245 apartments and retail space.
