City View Landing
As a part of the Newark HOPE VI redevelopment, City View Landing replaced a dense, high-rise public housing community with a mixed program of neighborhood uses. The former site consisted of an approximately seven-acre parcel bounded by Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, West Kinney, Lincoln, and Court Streets. The plan included 122 new residential units developed for homeownership, senior living, and affordable family rental townhomes. The assemblage of housing types addressed critical urban design problems, such as practical street intersection design and a need for parking internal to the block. Many of the homes feature private and secure rear and front yards, off-street or private parking, and covered front porches, resulting in a neighborhood of exceptional quality, design, and construction.
