Newark’s Historic Seth Boyden Court to Undergo Transformation Led by Perdomo of NY

With a rich history dating back to its establishment in 1939, Seth Boyden Court, the city’s first public housing complex, is poised for a remarkable revival. Spearheading this ambitious endeavor is Perdomo of NY, a renowned leader in demolition and redevelopment projects.

Recognizing the need for revitalization in the South Ward community, plans are underway to breathe new life into this once-abandoned property. The comprehensive development scheme encompasses mixed-income residential units, commercial spaces, and potentially even a state-of-the-art film studio, as hinted by Mayor Ras Baraka.

The demolition of Seth Boyden Court, made possible through a strategic partnership with the Newark Housing Authority and financing assistance from the city, signifies a pivotal step towards the neighborhood’s rejuvenation. Perdomo of NY, renowned for its expertise in demolition and environmental management, will oversee the meticulous removal process.

Joined by esteemed stakeholders including U.S. Rep. Donald Payne Jr. and Newark Housing Authority Executive Director Victor Cirilo, Mayor Baraka expressed his unwavering commitment to the project’s success, emphasizing its role in fostering equitable growth and prosperity within the community.

As the vision for the Dayton Street neighborhood unfolds, Deputy Mayor for Economic and Housing Development Allison Ladd highlights the transformative impact, envisioning a vibrant mixed-use district that celebrates inclusivity and innovation.

With groundbreaking initiatives such as the forthcoming PATH station and the natural splendor of Weequahic Park enhancing the area’s appeal, the revitalization of Seth Boyden Court epitomizes Mayor Baraka’s vision of a thriving, resilient South Ward.
