Most buildings that can be found along Broadway in Newark’s Lower Broadway business district date back generations, but now, a new development could be added to the block’s streetscape.


A five-story apartment building is envisioned for 40 and 42 Broadway, where a one-story building and a three-story building have long stood.

Site of proposed development: 40-42 Broadway, Newark.

40 Broadway Ave, LLC of Kensington, Brooklyn, submitted an application to the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment that says that 18 residential units, 823 square feet of retail space, and a gym are envisioned for the premises. Nine of the apartments would be one-bedroom units while the other nine apartments would be two-bedroom units.

The new building would also include a rooftop terrace with pergolas and a game area, according to site plans from OCA Architects.

Located a short walk north of Newark Broad Street Station, over the years, the existing structures on the premises have been home to businesses such as J&J Convenient Store, A Taste of Africa, Natalia Coffee Shop, Las Delicias Restaurant, Sazon Dominicano Restaurant, and Mzizi Afro-Caribbean Eats.

Shneur Kovitz is identified in the application as a managing member of the 40 Broadway Ave, LLC, while a disclosure statement also associates David Polasak and Chaim Genut with the firm.
