Lincoln Park Association in conjunction with Leadership Newark,

NJNOMA put together a proposal to present to stakeholders to obtain funding for the construction of a new mix-use residential retail at the exiting historical landmark site. The plan is to keep the façade intact however the need for structural reinforcement is inevitable. Also, the client would like to use secondhand shipping containers and steel framing. This will be a huge project for the city of Newark and we have the unique opportunity to create an initial design for projects as well as potential growth and connection to the community. Creating this proposal was an all-volunteer time. Once the funding came into play the Leadership Newark organization became the consultant.
