The Site

Located at 601 Dr. MLK Jr. Blvd., Newark Makerhoods is restoring the historic Krueger-Scott Mansion and building a new mixed-use development on the grounds where the stables and gardens once existed.

The Krueger-Scott Mansion will transform into office, event, and coworking space with a special focus on entrepreneurship. The office space, event spaces, and coworking memberships will be available to individuals, businesses, non-profits, and other organizations.

The new construction will include:

  • 66 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartment units, 36% will be affordable housing

  • 10 roughly 650 sqft commercial spaces

  • A shared commercial kitchen

  • Demonstration kitchen and event space

  • A greenhouse

  • Approximately 4,000 sqft courtyard

  • Above-ground parking

The project is planned to be complete in early 2021.
