NEWARK | 8-50 McWhorter Street + 51-57 Union Street + 108 Hamilton Street | 12 FLOORS

Project: 28-50 McWhorter Street + 51-57 Union Street + 108 Hamilton Street (Tallest Residential in Ironbound)

A developer has just proposed what would be one of the largest residential buildings ever constructed in Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood.

The proposal calls for a new high-rise mixed-use building to be built at 28-50 McWhorter Street, 51-57 Union Street, and 108 Hamilton Street in the city’s East Ward. According to a legal notice from the City of Newark, should the 506,656.34 square foot tower be approved, it would be 12 stories tall, and include 384 residential units. A commercial or retail space is also planned for the ground floor.

The building is being proposed by applicant and property owner 28 McWhorter St., LLC, which is registered out of the same Roseland Borough address as J&L Parking Corporation.

Currently, high-rise multi-family dwellings are not a permitted use in this district. Therefore, the notice states that the developer is seeking a variety of variances, including for exceeding the permitted percentage of lot coverage, insufficient front yard setback, insufficient side yard setback and insufficient rear yard setback.
