Newark at the Crossroads: A 2032 Vision for the Newark Aerotropolis - Presentation


The project attempts to leverage the proposed extension of the PATH station into transit-oriented redevelopment for the Dayton-Weequahic Park neighborhood. The goal of the proposal is to develop an Aerotropolis New Town that connects to Newark and provides tangible benefits for the existing community. The proposal has four main objectives. The Site Plan Objective is to create a site plan and model that reimagines Newark's underutilized industrial land into a high density, mixed-use, multi-modal Aerotropolis. The Zoning Objective calls for crafting a zoning ordinance and map that enables the development of a mixed-use Aerotropolis while empowering existing communities. The Transportation Objectives is to reimagine the Frelinghuysen Avenue corridor as a multi-modal boulevard that leverages the new PATH station to reintegrate Dayton, Elizabeth, and downtown Newark. Finally, the proposal calls for a Community Benefits Package that develops a community benefits agreement that ensures that the wealth and opportunity resulting from the new Aerotropolis extends to the Dayton community.
