Priority waitlist announced for Newark Urby

Urby and LMXD nearing completion for brand’s newest community

Residents who are looking to be among the first to tour Urby Newark, the restored and modernized historic 18-story Art Deco tower on Washington Street, are being waitlisted.

According to an announcement from Urby and LMXD, which have teamed up to create the new mixed-use project in New Jersey’s largest city, construction is nearing completion, paving the way for leasing to officially launch this summer.

Located at 155 Washington St., Newark Urby features 250 rental residences ranging from studios to three-bedrooms with light-filled living areas. The architecture preserved the building’s original design elements and added a new four-story addition.

Residents will enjoy communal spaces, including a rooftop terrace and ground-floor courtyard with barbecue grills and sitting areas, state-of-the-art gym, multiple lounge areas, a resident coworking space and a dog run. The building will also include roughly 4,000 square feet of neighborhood retail highlighted by a public café, a hallmark of Urby communities, as well as a 4,000-square-foot Rutgers University-Newark welcome center.

“We’re excited to bring Urby to the vibrant, convenient and cultural hub of Newark,” David Barry, founder and CEO of Urby, stated. “The development reflects the brand’s commitment to thoughtful design, engaging programming and community connection that creates unique experiences for residents.”

“Newark Urby represents our ongoing commitment to supporting the overall growth and success of Downtown Newark, and we are proud to see our collective vision for this underutilized site come to fruition,” Sam Chapin, managing director at LMXD, added. “With modern residences, state-of-the-art amenities and retail and public space, Newark Urby successfully combines high-quality living with a community-focused approach.”

Newark Urby is located centrally in the heart of Downtown Newark, across the street from Rutgers-Newark and just blocks from light rail service and the New Jersey Transit Broad Street Station, and a short walk from Newark Penn Station — with access to Amtrak, PATH and NJ Transit rail. It is also just a few blocks away from both Military Park and Washington Park.
