Renewal at 511-521 Newark: History & Challenges

Historically, the site at 511-521 Newark Street has been problematic, with buildings that partially collapsed last year and was deemed unsafe.

This led to the demolition of the existing structures, leaving the site mostly vacant. The previous owner, AIRN Management, filed for bankruptcy in 2022, further complicating the property’s future.

Plans for a 32-unit project at 511 Newark Street were announced back in 2019, but progress stalled following the bankruptcy of AIRN Management. This sale, however, signifies a new beginning and the possibility of finally bringing those plans, or perhaps new ones, to fruition.

The underlying theme is that high-quality, well-located sites in Hudson County remain of strong interest for developers.” said Fahri Ozturk of CBRE.

The marketing strategy involved a customized approach for each property in the portfolio, ensuring a broad pool of potential buyers was reached.

Adjacent to 511 Newark Street is another property currently managed by CBRE, located at 601-619 Newark Street.

This parcel is fully approved for the construction of 60 residential units and 4,900 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, including a restaurant with outdoor seating, further contributing to the area’s revitalization efforts.

In summary, the sale of the Newark Street development site is a significant milestone for Hoboken, reflecting both the challenges overcome and the exciting possibilities ahead.

With strategic planning and community support, this area is set to become a vibrant part of Hoboken’s urban landscape.
