The Pavilion and Colonnade Apartments are three highrise apartment buildings in Newark, New Jersey. The 22-story towers were designed in the International Style by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and opened in 1960, originally known as Colonnade Park.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

Soon after completing Manhattan’s Seagram Building, Mies designed the three towers near Branch Brook Park, north of Downtown Newark. The Pavilion Apartments are located at 108-136 Martin Luther King Blvd. and the Colonnade Apartments at 25 Clifton Avenue in the overlapping neighborhoods known as Seventh Avenue and Lower Broadway, Newark. Privately owned, the buildings were intended to bring middle-income families to the area of the Christopher Columbus Homes—a cluster of low-income apartment buildings, or projects, which were eventually demolished.[8][9]

The Pavilon Apartments were sold in April 2018.[10]
