Teachers Village

Teachers Village is a new mixed-use community in the heart of downtown Newark. Designed by world-renowned architect Richard Meier, Teachers Village is located on five blocks along Halsey Street south of Market Street.

 

            It features six new buildings consisting of:

 

            ✏  3 charter schools and a daycare facility

            ✏  206 units of rental housing marketed to teachers, and

            ✏  65,000 sf of high quality retail in over 20 different businesses.

 

Teachers Village is transforming former parking lots into a sustainably-designed (LEED-ND) dynamic new neighborhood that offers opportunities for teachers, students, professionals and visitors to live, work, shop, eat and learn.

 

Teachers Village is the nucleus of a thriving downtown arts and education district. Multiple galleries and artist enclaves exist along the Halsey Street corridor, which extends north from the City Without Walls (cWOW) gallery in Lincoln Park to the Newark Museum on Washington Park, encompassing such diverse offerings as Gallery Aferro on Market Street; and around the corner, the Newark Print Shop and Index Art Center;  GlassRoots glass studio on Bleeker Street; Rutgers University's Paul Robeson Galleries; and the Aljira Contemporary Art Center across from Military Park.

 

Teachers Village is surrounded by five universities with a community of 50,000 teachers, students and administrators. There is great potential for collaboration between Teachers Village and the surrounding corporate and academic community. Outreach to the universities as well as to leading corporate and institutional entities such as Audible.com, Panasonic, Prudential, PSE&G, Verizon, and area science and business incubators will enable Teachers Village to generate ideas and social capital within the community; and most importantly, to inspire its students and teachers to learn and earn the skills necessary for the 21st century.

 

“Smart classrooms” integrated within the various residential buildings provide yet another opportunity for offering after hours classes in arts, technology and design or simply to advance one's degree. Teachers Village presents a unique opportunity to learn about the future based on the next generation’s interests and innovations.
