Newark’s latest mixed-use development could be on a side street in the Ironbound neighborhood.


A proposal has surfaced for an eight-story project known as “The Jackson” at 85-101 and 103 Jackson Street in the city’s East Ward.

The development is slated to include five commercial spaces, 108 residential units, a gym, a conference room, and seven parking spaces, according to a November 29 municipal staff report. Nearly three dozen of the units would contain two bedrooms each while the remaining 73 units would each include one bedroom.
