Events Raw Space

The Gateway Center

The Gateway Center is comprised of 3 office buildings totaling over 1.6 million square feet, connected by a shared concourse walkway, hosting a plethora of amenities along with a direct connection to Newark Penn Station. Under new ownership, Onyx Equities will serve as the operating arm, while overseeing north of a 30-million-dollar redevelopment of the entire concourse, entry from Penn Station, main building lobbies, upper lobbies landings and bathrooms. Newark Penn is served by The Newark Light Rail, three NJ Transit commuter rail lines, the PATH rapid transit system, and all 11 of Amtrak's Northeast Corridor services, making it the seventh-busiest rail station in North America. With access and convenience like no other in the state, the Gateway Center is able to attract a deep and diverse talent pool pulling from NYC, urban and suburban NJ. With three onsite parking facilities, tenants can experience a true Live-Work-Play environment from sunrise at the office/retail and walkable amenities to sunset at Newark’s Prudential Center, NJ PAC or the Ironbound District. The Gateway Center offers Newark Fiber which delivers 10gig of fiber connectivity at a 1/10th the cost of a typical provider, a truly unparalleled internet experience. If you’re looking for a destination where activation and connection are imperative, look no further than Newark’s Gateway Center!

Event Summary

Newark has

seen sustained investment in recent years and signs point to this trend continuing into 2020. With

low office vacancy rates

and exciting local developments

opening later on this year, we'll explore

where developers are looking for their next properties. With great proximity to transit access and


destinations like the Prudential Center, New Jersey's largest city

is poised for more growth.

As major brokers are

seeking buyers for development sites and

multifamily vacancy rents

dip below 4% in

the area, developers

will be keeping a close eye on how the market performs in 2020.
