Yes , Journal Square and Downtown JC have been receiving abatement's or credits... Only Newark should be getting , Jersey City is in rapid redevelopment mode. Newark needs a push...although neighboring cities have done well without tax incentives like Bloomfield , Elizabeth and the Oranges...

Yea it was. Here is the actual source for the 4 corners millenium project:

http://www.rbhgrp.com/four-corners.html

================================

Quote:
four corners millennium project

The Four Corners Millennium Project (“Millennium Project”) consists of seven mixed-use residential, hotel, office and retail buildings located in the heart of downtown Newark’s Four Corners Historic District. What was once the busiest intersection and shopping district in the State of New Jersey and surrounding region, has over the past 25 years declined such that there exist several vacant and underutilized buildings, most of which are not occupied above ground-floor retail uses. Recently, a few infill buildings have been renovated to bring several dozen residences and a Dinosaur Barbeque restaurant to the Four Corners area. But not until RBH Group and City of Newark officials conceived of the Four Corners Millennium Project, did anyone address the district in a comprehensive, integrated manner.

The Millennium Project mirrors the goals and objectives of the SoMa Master Plan, extending the mixed-use, community-building concept
north and east from the boundaries of SoMa (including its first phase Teachers Village development), to activate the core of the central business district. Specific uses within the Millennium Project include:

Residential: 807,565 sf (705 units)
Hotel: 70,815 sf (130 rooms)
Retail: 161,670 sf
Office: 110,000 sf


The buildings each contain retail on the ground floor, with residential, office or hotel uses above the ground floor. Parking for 599 cars will be accommodated within the project. Historic features of significant and Landmarked buildings will be preserved in the overall design of the Project.

The Millennium Project builds upon the City’s master planning efforts as outlined in the Living Downtown Plan and the Master Plan to strengthen Four Corners as the active retail crossroads of the downtown by encouraging a continuous, active street wall along Broad and Market Streets that creates vibrant storefronts with day and evening uses that promote pedestrian activity on the street.

New Developments Seen as Boosting Future of Newark

Quote:


NEWARK—For years, this city has watched nearby Hoboken and Jersey City be transformed by luxury apartments, restaurants and an influx of young professionals while it struggled to overcome a legacy of poverty, violence and corruption.

Now developers say the future of what was once an industrial hub is finally under way, with half-a-dozen downtown residential developments having received financing, broken ground or been completed within the past year. The hope is that the projects will bring thousands of residents, a more vibrant street life that will help drive down crime and lift rents enough to tempt other developers to take the plunge.

“I think this moment is really a new beginning,” said Newark’s economic and housing development director, Baye Adofo-Wilson.

Among the projects moving forward is the Four Corners Millennium Project, which is expected to have 705 residential units, a hotel, retail and office space. It has received state tax credits and begun design work.

Elsewhere, Dranoff Properties plans to break ground this winter on a 22-story building with 245 apartments in a city that has seen little new high-rise construction in the past 50 years.

Also under way is the 500,000-square-foot redevelopment of the former Hahne & Co. department-store site. The developers have signed a lease for a Whole Foods Market, which is expected to open in 2016.

Coalition mulls possibilities for 'great urban spaces' along NJ Transit line in Newark, Oranges



— The mayors of three neighboring cities are expected to speak later this month about how changes to the areas surrounding train stations could potentially help bolster some of the state’s struggling neighborhoods.

The Urban Essex Coalition for Smart Growth formed in 2013 as a result of the Together North Jersey initiative, which is working to create transit-oriented developments in northern New Jersey. According to the Urban Essex Coalition’s Coordinator Tom Schulze, the group formed after a TNJ recommendation to look into redevelopment options surrounding a string of five train stations along the NJ Transit rail line in Newark, East Orange, and Orange.

The five-mile stretch encompasses about 62,000 residents across the three municipalities.

“There is a lot of opportunity for redevelopment and improvement along the line that bisects these communities,” Schulze said in an interview about the work the coalition has been doing over the past year. “Our overarching goal is to improve the area…to encourage great urban spaces.”

The coalition, which includes the three cities, NJ Transit, and a few dozen area businesses, nonprofits, and colleges, is working to foster mixed-use developments surrounding the Broad Street Station in Newark, City Hall and Brick Church stations in East Orange, the Orange Station near Main Street in Orange, and the Highland Avenue station in the Valley Arts district. The coalition has applied for a $200,000 grant that it says will allow for an in-depth study of the area to determine exactly what types of developments would work best around each station.

Kearny still wants NJ Transit train station, mayor says


By Rose Duger | For The Jersey Journal
on January 08, 2015 at 11:32 AM, updated January 08, 2015 at 11:34 AM

KEARNY -- Leaving a legacy for future generations of Kearny residents was the theme running through Mayor Al Santos’s annual state-of-the-town address at Tuesday’s reorganization meeting.

As he outlined priorities for 2015, Santos noted that elected officials many years ago had the vision to pursue long-term plans including the construction of the Gunnel Oval athletic complex and Riverbank Park that benefit today’s residents.

For Santos, the modern-day equivalent of that vision includes persuading NJ Transit to revive plans to construct a new train station on Bergen Avenue below Schuyler Avenue. The transit agency had targeted Kearny for a station years ago, but scuttled the plan when Gov. Chris Christie canceled the ARC tunnel project to build a new Hudson River transit tunnel.

Now, with bi-state concerns about train capacity and the poor condition of existing tunnels, Santos figures the time is ripe to present Kearny’s case.

“This is one thing I have not given up on,” he said. “I think the state will have to reverse its nearsightedness on that issue.”

Santos also outlined priorities including building a new athletic complex at Gunnel Oval, replacing aging water transmission lines, repaving streets, continuing to pursue development of recreational facilities at the Keegan Landfill and supporting large-scale redevelopment projects on Passaic and Schuyler avenues.

“I think today we need to make decisions that will improve the quality of life in this town for years to come,” he noted, adding that short-term goals including bolstering the ranks of the police and fire departments and holding the line on taxes are also top priorities.

some amazing updates, thanks Nexis and Chris! Newark is such a no-brainer..

I wonder what Phillip Roth would say about these projects..

Have noticed more and more activity on the Harrison side, specifically the old factory buildings w/ construction debris increasing. Also the woodframe places are up to 4 stories now. There is also something going on in Rahway on the east side of the tracks north of the station, wonder what.

Won't it be great when Harrison station is done..what a different impression of Newark/Harrison.

$55 million redesign, two-story building planned for Elizabeth NJ Transit station


Preliminary designs were unveiled Monday for a $55 million renovation of the Elizabeth NJ Transit station. From left are Mayor Chris Bollwage, City Council President Patricia Perkins Auguste, Assemblywoman Annette Quijano, U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and U.S. Sen Cory Booker. (Katie Lannan | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)

ELIZABETH — A total of $55 million in state and federal money will fund the construction of a new two-story building and train platforms at the city's midtown NJ Transit Station, a project officials hailed today as an economic driver.

"This project is not just about the rail, it's not just about the station," U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said during an event outside the station. "This will be an economic accelerator for the city of Elizabeth. It'll increase housing values, it'll spur business growth, it'll create jobs and expand opportunity. This is a tremendous day for the city of Elizabeth and for the region."

Booker, Sen. Robert Menendez and Rep. Albio Sires joined state, city and NJ Transit officials and Union County freeholders to unveil the designs for the new station.

"This area is going through a renaissance, and this is just going to help it," Sires said. "It's going to create jobs, people are going to move into the area because of easy access to moving back and forth, and you need a train station that's adequate."

Preliminary designs of the West Grand Street station, expected to be completed in 2018, include a two-story station building with a street-level ticket office, waiting room and vendor space.

East Newark wants a hotel built on its Passaic River waterfront

By Rose Duger | For The Jersey Journal
on January 22, 2015 at 1:55 PM

East Newark’s elected officials are setting their sights in 2015 on enticing a developer to build a hotel along its Passaic River waterfront.

Mayor Joseph R. Smith outlined moving ahead on a new hotel as his administration’s top priority for 2015.

So far, four entities have requested more information on specifications for the project, but none have submitted applications to the borough yet, according to the mayor.

“That’s our priority this year, to try and build a hotel along the waterfront,” said Smith. “I really feel this is the answer. It’s what we need here. It’s low maintenance compared to the services that would have to be provided for a residential development and we would get the real estate taxes for it.”

Borough officials have targeted a tract at the intersection of Passaic and Central avenues for the project. Once jointly occupied by BASF corporation and a parking lot for First Republic Corporation, the parcel has stood empty for several years.

Massive Changes were approved for the zoning in Newark...the first revision since 1957...


Quote:
+ NZLUR increased the number of zoning districts from 12 to 19 to provide each neighborhood a custom fit
+ Adjusts regulations in response to articulated community agendas: for example, to prevent undesirable teardowns of historic homes in Clinton Hill and to control difficult-to-accommodate multifamily conversions in Roseville & Forest Hill, and set a four-story height for large portions of the Ironbound.
+ Adds tailored special use zones for areas of the city occupied by major hospitals and airport support functions.
+ Restores dedicated residential zoning to area like 11th, 12th & 13th Avenues.
+ Creates new buffer zone between to protect Ironbound residences from noxious industrial uses.
+ Provides updated & clearer definitions for building uses. For example, “Eating and Drinking Establishments” are now distinguished between “Sit-Down” and “Take-Out” so residents & developers have clearer expectations of development. Also provides more detail and categorization for industrial uses to clearly identify uses associated with resident health concerns.
+ Provides modernized parking requirements, no longer one-size-fits-all. Commercial parking regulations have been refined according to actual needs.
+ We have increased and modernized the conditional use list of uses that have higher standards to meet, often uses that seen by some as nuisances such as a truck wash or body art studio.
+ Updates development fees so developers cover a fairer share of the costs of development review, the first update since 1996.
+ Creates heightened noticing requirements for development applications to better inform the public. For example, a simple notice of development application will be posted at proposed development sites, and applicants will no longer be able to carry applications for long periods without having to renotice property owners.
+ Provides more common-sense guidance on building design based on building types, along with illustrated design standards.
+ Uses “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design” strategies such as minimum street-facing windows on new buildings and controls for transparency and visibility for front-yard fences.
+ Increases minimum required landscaping for parking lots & industrial sites.
+ Creates limits on impervious coverage for all building types to lessen combined sewer overflows.
+ Specifically permits desirable uses such as community gardens & urban agriculture.
+ Add standards for solar and wind power which did not exist before.
+ Creates new design standards for streets & sidewalks to improve pedestrian safety & experience.
