New 7-Eleven Planned for Newark’s North Ward

Even though 7-Eleven has had a presence in New Jersey for decades, the convenience store chain has recently undergone a major expansion in the state, particularly in Essex County. For instance, in the last few years alone, two 7-Eleven locations have opened in Downtown Newark while a third is coming to the neighborhood. Meanwhile, additional stores have opened in the East Ward, the South Ward, and the North Ward, along with neighboring East Orange, South Orange, and Maplewood. Now, yet another 7-Eleven is planned within the Newark city limits.

The city’s latest convenience store is being proposed for 865-869 Franklin Avenue near the Branch Brook Park Light Rail station in the North Ward. The site, which is located within two blocks of two separate Krauszer’s convenience stores, contains a gas station and JC Auto Mechanic.

This 7-Eleven is being proposed by the property’s owner, Bloomfield-based Syed Family, LLC, which is registered out of a 7-Eleven in the township. The LLC recently applied for Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with multiple variances from the Newark Central Planning Board in order to construct the location and complete “associated landscaping, lighting, and parking improvements.” The matter was expected to be heard by the board last month.
