How's the Prudential Center expected to do with the arena in Brooklyn competing with it now?

Wawa are going to be saturating the north with many stores in the coming years. Kind of sad as I'd like them to remain a Central/South jersey thing :P

Prudential center is doing just fine as MSG is MSG so Brooklyn and the Rock represent a two stop stayin the area for most acts. I think the larger issue of owernship needs to be sorted to see how much is invested in hitting that target date of 250 events.

 

As for development there will be alot to see once the season opens as you should start to see the steel come out of the ground at the new Pru building and miltary park rennovations will be moved along. Add to that teh crab shack as well as hopefully Indigo by the end of year and you will have new restuarants and buildings churning along.

teachers village has their website up and I have to give credit to RBH, they are moving a ton of stuff along and it's refreshing to see. Between them, Hanini, Fidelco and Prudential, you have to be excited about the changes coming along.

You reminded me that I took some pictures down there on Friday while I was getting lunch!

 

Teachers Village from Halsey St.and I gotta say it even looks a hell of a lot better in person. Nice buildings, new sidewalks, a bunch of trees planted. It'll kill my free parking but I can't wait to see what businesses pop up around this thing.. It'll also help push crime out of that area making the area around PruCenter that much safer

Damn I thought I took one of the Prudential construction.. Not much to report right now though as its a giant dirt pit.. Oh well, still very exciting to see all of this construction in Newark

The Panasonic building is pretty much complete. I think it's actually unofficially open, in that some employees have moved in this week. While not very tall or original, the tower came out looking pretty nice. Now, let's get those employees coming out to games this season.

Let's get the Panasonic Tower open at the PruCenter's Lafayette entrance.. I really hope they come on as a major sponsor of the team!

Wow, I remember about 5 years ago I did a partial demolition package for the Hahne's and Griffith buildings.  It was a very problematic demolition due to the basements & parking garages that were to be maintained.  Never went through due to cost and historic reasons.

Ya there is going to be alot of tax credit financing along pru financing to make this happen but it will because the developers involved and it being Pru's neighbor.
In another note, I noticed it hasnt realky been mentioned that our new owners company also owns and manges a few properties in newark already. Hopefully he will get in on the arena district redevelopment as well.

Off the top of my head no, I remember them presenting at a business forum after their acquisitions talking about how they viewed Newark and Urban markets as Domestic emerging markets. Honestly, the guy presenting came off a bit arrogant but they were investing in the city so I gave it all a pass. From what I remeber though it was a couple of large apartmetn complex properties in the South Ward possibly near Wequihanic park.

On a cool note I was down by the river yesterday and not only is the new park opened between freeman and Jackson but the old gas site is looking pretty good (Jackson to the horizon building). Hopefully, we will be celebrating opening that section by next year. In further positive news the walkway between the Clairmont (fbi building) and Penn station is already in and just needs to be opened.

Sounds from that article like they're wanting to build a new station at the airport. Why not use the existing Newark Airport Station that NJ Transit and Amtrak use?

 

Also, I only support this if it means a new station for South Street in Newark. Otherwise this move only really benefits Lower Manhattan and Jersey City.
