New Mixed-Use Building Planned Near Newark's Teachers Village

Newark, New Jersey: More development could be coming to Newark's Central Ward.

Plans have been revealed for a new mixed-use building at 45-53 William Street, between Halsey Street and Washington Street, at the edge of Downtown Newark. According to a legal notice, the proposal calls for a four-story building with 39 residential apartments and around 2,750 square feet of retail space on the ground floor atop 32 parking spaces. The property, located a few yards away from recently completed residential buildings in the Teachers Village development, has been used as a parking lot for several years. William Washington LLC, the developer and property owner, is based out of the same One Washington Park address as Assurance Realty Group. The company is seeking preliminary and final site plan approval for the development.

The Newark Central Planning Board will hold a public hearing regarding the proposal during its meeting on Monday, January 9th, 2017 at 6:30pm at City Hall.
