Construction on a development that replaced a wooded lot in Downtown Newark is expected to wrap up in the new year.

The five-story project at 915-933 Broad Street has topped off and windows have been installed throughout the structure, which is situated at the corner of Hill Street across from City Hall. The development, previously branded as City Hall Apartments, is expected to consist of 84 apartments, an IHOP location, and a Cornbread restaurant. Signs advertising the upcoming IHOP and Cornbread have been posted on the facade of the building.

Tara Dowdell, a spokesperson for developer Adenah Bayoh, told Jersey Digs that everything in the development is expected to open in the spring of 2020. The project is now being referred to as 915 Broad Street.

Currently, the premises are owned by Broad Hill Partners, a firm registered out of the Manhattan address of Lettire Construction. The company acquired the previously undeveloped site at the end of 2016 for nearly $2 million from the Newark Housing Authority, an agency with over 12,000 people on its low-income public housing waitlist. In 2018, Day Pitney LLP, which represented Broad Hill Partners at the time, reported that 55 percent of the units at 915 Broad Street would be designated as “affordable housing,” in part as a result of federal low-income housing tax credits.

  1. Can you please tell me how I can obtain an application for one of the units please!! I have been here all of my life, I am on Disability, I need an affordable apartment, it would be a Blessing to live in the downtown area an be apart of the Re-development of Newark, NJ.

  2. It’s a total blessing, paying a rental of 1,900dollars per month and you can’t call it your own. Please let me know how it can apply for one of the units.
    I wish the mayor and all the developers UL’S blessings.

  3. This is the one thing I don’t agree with. -Why not build something specifically for “low income people”. Why should I pay $2000+ for an apartment in a luxury apartment complex while having others paying $800 or even less.

    • What you don’t get is that whatever amount a low income tenant pays represents the same percentage of their income as your rent is for you….so they are working just as hard as you to pay their rent.

  4. I’ve worked in Newark for 10 years and looking to move to Newark. Can you please inform me how I can get an application to this development?

    Thank you in advance.
