Mulberry Commons Project
Mulberry Commons, Newark
Mulberry Commons is a $10 million public-private development project in the heart of downtown Newark. Previously known as “Triangle Park”, the development was delayed for over a decade by lawsuits and other obstacles, before then Deputy Mayor for Housing & Development Baye Adofo-Wilson and other Newark officials successfully formed a partnership with local commercial landowners to begin development in 2017.
Officially opened to the public two years later, Mulberry Commons provides a vital link between many of downtown Newark’s most notable downtown attractions including the Prudential Center and Newark’s Penn Station, one of the nation’s busiest rail hubs.
The development also played a critical role in the development of Ironside Newark, a long-vacant warehouse building adjacent to Mulberry Commons, that is now a vibrant mixed-use office and retail building that hosts Mars Wrigley’s North American headquarters, among other tenants.
