The former Hahne and Co flagship department store building was restored and redeveloped into a vibrant mixed-use, mixed-income development in the heart of downtown Newark, New Jersey. The timing of this restoration coordinated well with the rise of Prudential Insurance’s new 20-story office building and the City’s restoration of Military Park, both located across the street from the project. With Rutgers University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the New Jersey Historical Society located steps away from the project – the Hahne’s project connects the various important corridors of Downtown Newark and provides unprecedented quality new housing, retail and commercial opportunities to the community.

The residential portion includes 160 units of both affordable and market-rate apartments and a parking garage. Opened in 2016, the building is also home to a diverse group of retailers including Express Newark, Rutgers University-Newark arts and cultural incubator, a Barnes and Noble bookstore, Newark’s first Whole Foods Market, Coolvines wine store, Marcus BP restaurant, and the Industrial Bank.
