Eleven80 is a 137 m (449 ft) tall skyscraper in Newark, New Jersey. It was completed as an office building in 1930, has 35 floors, and was the tallest building in Newark until 1931. It was converted into residential use in 2004 after being vacant since 1986.[2][3]

Eleven 80 is located in the heart of Downtown Newark, just north of Four Corners across from Military Park, both of which are United States historic districts. It is clad in light tan brick and limestone. The five-story base features terra cotta panels and metal spandrels decorated with geometric floral motifs. The letters "LN" can be seen above the third floor, for Lefcourt Newark, the original name of the building.
