Construction is continuing to advance on a Downtown Newark parking garage that was originally proposed well over three years ago.
Crews have spent the last several months working at 47-63 Green Street at the corner of Mulberry Street on what is being referred to as the Newark Parking Authority’s (NPA) Green Street Mixed-Use Facility. Located near City Hall, the Newark Municipal Court, and the Prudential Center, the project is expected to consist of 515 parking spaces, offices, and retail space on the ground floor. The office space is slated to be used by the NPA, the City of Newark’s Finance Department, and the Newark Municipal Court, according to municipal legislation.
Previously, the premises contained a surface parking lot and were expected to become the site of a parking garage with close to 650 parking spaces. Jersey Digs reported in 2017 that Newark’s municipal government sought to sell the property to the NPA for $1. Then, in 2019, the project made headlines after the Newark Municipal Council voted to lease back part of the facility over a 30-year period from the NPA for $27 million.
Currently, Blue Bell, Pennsylvania-based Timothy Haahs & Associates and Mountainside-based Netta Architects are listed as being responsible for the project’s architecture, while other contractors include Gilbane, Dobco, and Grant Engineering.
