Newly released renderings illustrate a multi-family project that could be coming to Newark’s Central Ward.

A development firm called The Art of Newark 2, LLC is planning a six-story building at 28-30, 32-36, 38-40, 42-46 Irvine Turner Boulevard in Newark. The site, which was previously home to the historic Queen of Angels Church and School, could become home to 155 residential units. Netta Architects and Stonefield Engineering are both involved with the project.

Jersey Digs previously reported on these plans in March before the developer was first scheduled to go before the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment. At the time, The Art of Newark 2, LLC sought Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances for use and density, according to a public notice, which added that “the applicant has since revised the proposed plans.”

The specific changes are not yet clear, but variances such as excessive lot coverage, insufficient facade transparency, and insufficient parking are now being sought.

A February memorandum from the Nishuane Group noted that 110 parking spaces were proposed for a garage on the first floor of the building, though it is not yet clear if this is still the case. The memorandum also stated that there would be studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units on the first, second, and third floors, while 13 one-bedroom and 24 two-bedroom duplexes would occupy the fourth and fifth floors.

A hearing regarding the latest plans is scheduled to take place over Zoom this Thursday, August 6 at 6:00 p.m.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.

  1. As long as Cottage Street Orbit who owns many vacant properties in the downtown area and don’t maintain them, including the row of empty storefronts on Broad St between Central and New St . Large amount of graffiti that can be seen from blocks away on the side of the second floor roof area of 601 Broad St. and also 599 and 603 Broad St. They climbed the scaffolding in front of 607 Broad St. to get up there. And another landbanking group from Ramsey NJ headed by Yankel Tauber also owns many vacant properties in the downtown area that they will never do anything with, including 607 Broad St. which is the old Griffith building. Also has a large amount of graffiti on the side roof area wall that is visible from a great distance away and the scaffolding they put up in front has litter underneath and the lights under the scaffolding don’t work now for over seven or eight months now because to save a few dollars they had the electricity cut off, now it’s very dark under there at night. The light bulbs are still intact however. Code Enforcement has been notified about both buildings.
