Developers Lotus Equity Group and Michael Green Architecture have revealed plans to construct the largest timber office building in Newark, New Jersey.
The Riverfront Square office building will contain up to 500,000 square feet of Class A office space within its cutting-edge timber-framed structural system.
“To build the nation’s largest timber building in Newark speaks to the confidence and belief we have in the city and Riverfront Square as a world-class location that can compete with any great city around the world,” said Ben Korman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Lotus Equity Group. “The vision we share with Michael Green is to design the most environmentally sustainable office tower that enhances the health of tenants and the surrounding communities through efficient planning and green design. When you merge these benefits with Newark’s emerging technology sector, Riverfront Square is primed to help companies attract and retain valuable talent.”
By choosing wood as the primary construction material, the building provides an opportunity to envision a sustainable, efficient and architecturally-stunning future for the riverfront square and for the city of Newark.
