Renderings can be found on the architect's website: Jarmel Kizel Architects & Engineers

The renderings are too big to post but can be viewed directly:

Analysis from chris08876 on the FAA filing that was recently approved

This is not the typical time-table for a cell tower.

Next, look at the structure type: "Building" @ 550 ft. The structure type code is not what it would be for a cell tower or Comm (Communications Tower) via the FAA.

I think we may have a solid residential here!

If there are any proposed amendments to the zoning. That could be a big key as to the motivations for case: 2017-AEA-12953-OE.




This is not an official business district but mostly residential with your occasional light business/retail on the main streets. Most of the buildings are low to mid, with your occasional high rise.
It looks like there will be a public parking garage for visitors to Branch Park. At 550 ft, this would be the real new tallest in Newark.

Another person mentioned there is an abandoned Newark City Subway stop nearby that could be reopened to provide direct access to Newark Penn Station and a one seat transfer to New York.

This is an office tower?

Branch Brook Park is pretty nice. I would think that residential towers would be a more expected fit, but I'm assuming this is commercial space.

I bet there is some zoning changes at work. I believe the area is zoned for mostly residential, and light commercial.

No way this is commercial. At least not the primary use. I can see this being ideal for condos maybe. An excellent view of the park away from the business core, but still very quick access to NJ Transit, PATH and NYC.
