One Riverview is a building under construction in Newark, New Jersey, the first market rate residential high-rise to be newly built in the city since 1962.

Location[edit]

One Riverview is adajacent to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) and next door to the center's education facility at 24 Rector Street in Downtown Newark. It is nearby McCarter Highway across from which is the Passaic River. The NJPAC-Center Street station of the Newark Light Rail in a block away.

One Riverview is seen as a major boost to the Newark's Living Dowtown Plan,[5] an effort to create transform Downtown from a 9-5 work place to a vibrant 24/7 community. It is one of several residential project slated for the area around Military Park, itself recently renovated. Other projects include the adaptive re-use of the American Insurance Company Building and the former flagship department store of Hahne and Company, and the new construction of One Theater Square.

Design[edit]

The complex will incorporate an historic six-story building that was once part of Ballantine Brewery.[6] It was later used by Newark College, the forerunner of the Rutgers School of Law–Newark, (1930-1947)[7] and until 2006 the city's Science High School.[8] A new 22-story high-rise will be built adjacent to it. The building will have 169 rental units and 7,640 square feet of ground floor retail space as well 117 tenant parking spaces.[9]

Development[edit]

First conceived in 2006.[10][11] the project is a collaboration by Shaquille O'Neal, Newark native and basketball star, in conjunction with New Brunswick-based Boraie Development, which has been instrumental in the development of the district around the New Brunswick train station.The project was partially made possible through a New Jersey Department of Economic Development Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit.[12] The $20,666,625 tax credit to 36-54 Rector Street, LLC and Boraie Development, LLC was originally granted on February 10, 2010, and finalised on April 10, 2012 based on a total investment of $ 63,897,500. Goldman Sachs has provided financing, while Newark-based Prudential Financial bought redevelopment area bonds issued by the city. Additionally the Municipal Council of Newark in February 2013 adopted a resolution for $5 million tax credits.[13] Ground was broken in September 2013.[14][15][16]
