Newark: Which Way Forward

Downtown Newark, New Jersey is changing. In the past two years, a spate of new building projects has brought new workers, new residents, and new businesses into the City’s core, transforming what was a nine-to-five downtown into a twenty-four-seven district. The City’s leadership has encouraged new development through its “Newark Forward” report, which outlines a blueprint for equitable growth and opportunity. However, with its current masterplan, the City lacks the tools to visualize and evaluate the urban form of this new development.
