Newly renovated and expanded, 494 Broad Street contributes to the vitality of the flourishing Washington Park district. Constructed on a 40,000 SF surface parking lot, the mixed use 10 story structure consists of an eight level parking facility accommodating 630 parking spaces, 80,000 SF of office space for Cablevision, a newly renovated lobby, and 4,500 SF of future retail space. The precast structure is predominately clad with zinc panels, curtain wall and aluminum louvers that conceal the parking levels.
The overall image presents a sleek cohesive connection between the 8 stories of parking and the two levels of office structure that cap it. The existing building was re-clad with the same materials creating a seamless integration between the two connecting buildings.
The 494 Broad Street redevelopment project is part of a long-term plan to revitalize the North Broad Street area of Newark.
