The Emerald City
Newark, New Jersey
Urban planning, in the most inspiring premise...
Another side project of mine that emerged from developing Highpoint Tower and The Newark Visitor Center was the premise of a 20-year masterplan of Newark. In a Dubai-Styled mass construction project, the idea would be to increase the city's density from 270,000 people to the excess of 1 Million, by constructing the retail, residential, and commercial capacity to take full advantage of the logistics capability of Newark Port and the global connectivity provided by Liberty International Airport. The Infrastructure would grow over time to serve these needs and through a the use of conservation and of intelligent capital-driven zoning, the city would grow to great economic prominence without losing its identity as the Brick City.
