Ironside Newark to house Ørsted office for offshore wind and digital staff

Nearly a year after offshore wind energy company Ørsted first announced it would open its North American Digital Operations headquarters in Newark, it is now official as to where and how much space it will occupy.

The offshore wind energy company reportedly secured a lease for 8,200 square feet to occupy a portion of the second floor of Ironside Newark, according to a New Jersey Business Magazine report.

Ørsted’s offices are expected to open this summer and will house information technology, operations and other project and company support staff for New Jersey offshore wind projects.

“New Jersey has established itself as a national leader in clean energy, innovation and offshore wind, which makes it an ideal location for Ørsted Offshore North America to headquarter our digital hub,” said David Hardy, CEO, Ørsted Offshore North America. “We’re excited to put down roots in Newark as we continue to develop our offshore wind projects Ocean Wind 1 and 2, bringing renewable energy to more than 1 million New Jersey homes.”

Ironside Newark, located at 110 Edison Place, is a formerly circa-1907 warehouse in downtown Newark that has been redeveloped and restored by Edison Properties into a commercial and retail hub across more than 456,000 square feet. It is situated directly adjacent to Newark Penn Station and within quick distance to Newark Liberty International Airport.

Designed by the renowned New York City-based design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman, Ironside Newark boasts direct access to the new Mulberry Commons Park, a city-owned park.
