An Ocean County developer can now move forward with a proposed mixed-use project on Halsey Street in Downtown Newark that Jersey Digs first reported on last week.
The Newark Central Planning Board approved an application concerning the planned five-story building at 289-293 Halsey Street during its meeting on January 27. The development, which would be located adjacent to the municipal archives building at a site that is south of Teachers Village, would include 40 residential units, 885 square feet of commercial space, and a 24-space parking garage if built.
A rendering of the project was provided to Jersey Digs by ArtKirkTech Designs of Englewood.
The application was filed by Klein Fund, LLC, a Lakewood-based company that paid $1.5 million for the site at the beginning of 2019. The property currently includes a one-story building that used to contain the E&L Battery & Ignition Co. before the business was sold to a firm from Upstate New York.
