New Residential Development Planned for Newark's Broad Street

Newark, New Jersey: A new residential development is planned for the southern gateway to Downtown Newark.

According to a legal notice, a five-story building could come to 1213-1221 Broad Street and neighboring 124 Miller Street in Newark's East Ward. The notice states that Fausto Simoes, a managing member of New Broad Street, LLC, is seeking preliminary and final site plan approval with variances to construct a 72-unit building with parking on the ground floor. Each of the upper four floors would contain 18 units. Currently, a three-story house and Souly Motor Cars, a used car dealership, are located on the property, but both buildings are slated to be demolished to make way for the new development. The site, which was previously home to Broad Motor Car and Andy's Transport, Inc., is situated across the street from the Broad Street off-ramp from Route 21/McCarter Highway and a vacant PSE&G building. There is NJ Transit bus service to Elizabeth, Newark Liberty International Airport, Downtown Newark, Midtown Manhattan, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, and Ocean County within walking distance of the property.

The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment will hear the proposal during its meeting on Thursday, March 23rd at 7:00pm in the City Hall Municipal Council Chamber.
