Prudential Arena Area Development
The firm has been retained to design a hotel, several restaurants, retail and commercial buildings with residential loft-type units around the Prudential Arena site in Newark. Mixed use structures include combinations of historic renovation, restoration/re-use and new construction. Initial hotel design projects have morphed into the current residential and office development projects, which include retail and restaurant uses at the ground floor, to co-exist with the neighboring NJ Devils restaurants and theme stores. In the shadow of the arena, the diverse uses are part of a new urban life that is emerging in the Four Corners district of downtown near Penn Station. First phase retail and restaurants are currently under construction.
