A group of properties located opposite one of Newark’s historic cemeteries could see their existing structures torn down in order to facilitate the development of a new residential building.


The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment has a pending application involving a proposed five-story project at parcels such as 11-13 and 15-19 Herbert Place. The tracts in question are situated across the street from Mount Pleasant Cemetery just east of Broadway in the city’s North Ward.

If approved, the development on the 11,044-square-foot site would include a dozen one-bedroom units, 11 two-bedroom units, one three-bedroom unit, and a 1,890-square-foot rooftop terrace, according to a February 3 memo to the board by Gerard Haizel of Nishuane Group, LLC.
