Number of units
Newark Urby includes the renovation of the existing 18-story tower, which was originally built as a parking garage in the 1920s, as well as the construction of a new four-story building. It will feature 249 market-rate residences ranging from studios to three bedrooms, along with a host of top-flight resident amenities, including a rooftop deck, ground floor courtyard, gym, lounge areas and a music room. The building will also include roughly 4,000 square feet of neighborhood retail, including a café, and a 4,000-square foot Rutgers-Newark welcome center. The property is designed and will be managed under the Urby brand, which is a forward thinking, people-focused alternative to the standard apartment building. Each Urby is different but what unifies them is an inspired approach to design and common spaces that radiate social energy.
