Meier-designed Newark ‘Teachers Village’ clears hurdle

A $120-million education village designed by legendary architect and Newark, N.J. native, Richard Meier, gained approval 26 March from the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.

Developed by RBH Group, the project will span four blocks and will contain eight buildings consisting of 224 residential units reserved for Newark teachers as well as 100,000 square feet of charter schools and nearly 60,000 square feet of retail space. Expected to break ground this summer, the project could be completed as soon as summer 2012.
