A company that owns an auto dealership in Newark’s South Ward has applied to replace their used car and U-Haul lot with a mixed-use development.

HK Auto Group, LLC is expected to seek approval and variances this week for a proposed five-story project at 89-91 and 93 Elizabeth Avenue. An application states that 29 residential units are in the works for the premises.

The proposed development would include 14 parking spaces. Located next to Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church not far from Malcolm X Shabazz High School, the properties are served by New Jersey Transit buses to Clifton, Cranford, Downtown Newark, Elizabeth, Irvington, Nutley, Plainfield, and Westfield.

Although development proposals of this sort have been quite common in other Newark neighborhoods over the last few years, this proposal is among the only recent applications of its kind for this area along Elizabeth Avenue. The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hear the plans during a virtual meeting this Thursday, August 6 at 6:00 p.m.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be discussed by the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.

  1. I don’t know if this development was approved, but it isn’t guaranteed to come to fruition. If it was approved, I’d imagine this project wouldn’t be shovel-ready for another year or so.
    As for your question, you have internet access, as evidenced by your comment.
    …do a Google search, go to ZBA meetings, contact a realtor, but don’t expect these articles that are meant to inform about new real estate developments, to provide you with instruction on how to pursue the finished project…
