I have done a little homework on the Isley Building at 35 Edison Place. I found this article from www.newarkrbp.org Link. I then found this website Link 2 which is the developer's site. It has very interesting pictures of various plans around Newark including 35 Edison Place.
Here is a list of the projects...
Newark Downtown District
33 Washington Street
35 Edison Place

Some interesting statistics on 35 Edison Place.
- Ground floor retail space of 2500 Square Feet
- Full Basement
- $50 a square foot
- Two story restaurant (Brick City Bar and Grill)
- Four loft style apartments
- Brick City Bar and Grill will take up 6,000 square feet

I called up the number it gives for Brick City Bar and Grill and the man who picked up said that it is going to open within the next month- month and a half. The article also says that the four loft style apartments are currently for rent. I'm going to head down there next month to check out the entry plaza, 35 Edison, and what ever else is going on down there.

I love Jeff Vanderbeek. Every single thing I've suggested thusfar has been given due consideration and a large part of it has been implemented.

Well, ND5, another one of your suggestions has come through. The Rock to get a sculpture

As always, great work TR07. We've been hearing whispers about the Brick City Bar and Grill for a while now, so it's nice to see something concrete. It's even nicer to see that it will be open in time for the start of the season. People thought Vanderbeek was crazy, but this arena really is helping to turn around downtown Newark.

One more thing, in one of the articles that I found while researching the topic, the Deputy Mayor of Newark said that they are planning on breaking ground on a new hotel near the arena within the next year. Could this be along with the much anticipated Triangle Park???

The BCB&G website is up,(didn't know if posted) and it looks like a really good menu. A lot to pick from. And most importantly it sounds like it will be a good place to hangout at the bar and not just a bar to sit at while you wait for a table.

Hey everybody!
I'm going to be heading down to Newark on Tuesday (5th) to check out what's going on around The Rock. Any requests of where I should take pictures of? Also, how's the food at the Arena Bar because I plan on having lunch there unless Brick City or any other of the restaurants that are supposed to open this summer are open.

From my experience, the food at Arena Bar is extremely forgettable. Best food around the new barn IMO is at Scully's (the Dublin Decker is heaven between slices of bread), but a lot of folks around here seem to be fond of Hell's Kitchen (only went there once myself and wasn't all that impressed).

Thanks Dano. I'll probably go there instead. I've heard mixed reviews of Arena Bar but I'll check out Scullys. Here's their website if anybody is interested. Scullys

That's an ugly name, I'll just keep calling it the practice rink.

LOL, they still haven't named the Fire Lounge... I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before it becomes the Taco Bell Fire Lounge.

OK, I'll put up my summary of stuff around the arena tomorrow... But Shaq has just announced that he will be building a $90 million, 25 story condo tower in Downtown Newark. It will be built near NJPAC and will be Newark's third tallest building. The condos will be market rate. Link
Shaq is from Newark. I wonder if we ever get an NBA team at The Rock like the Bobcats, Nets, or Grizzlies if he become a part owner or something...

Wow. Now is this the first high-end condominium tower getting built in Newark since this whole downtown rejuvination? One way or another, it's a good sign for the city. And good for Shaq, giving back to his hometown.
