Building Infrastructure

Ironside Newark, the newest central business hub for a growing and vibrant downtown Newark, is located at the corner of Edison Place and McCarter Highway. The building is being transformed from a historic warehouse into a state-of-the art office and retail destination.

Ironside Newark is always connected, just steps away from mass transit hub Newark Penn Station, and in close proximity to Newark Liberty International Airport. It features an unmatched dark fiber optic network, with loft-style, open workspaces making collaboration and connection an everyday experience.

Enjoy onsite and nearby dining and entertainment options, and direct access to the new Mulberry Commons Park, all amid a thriving urban landscape taking downtown to new heights.

There’s never been a better time to start your future in Newark.



Constructed in 1907 to accommodate railroad freight storage, Ironside Newark was originally known as the Newark Warehouse Company Building. The building was a six-story renaissance revival used by the Central Railroad of New Jersey and located on what was then known as Mechanic Street.

Considered an operational marvel at the time, freight shipments were managed by a central telephone office in the warehouse, with train deliveries entering through the second floor to support the city’s elevated track network.


In 1980, the Newark Warehouse Company Building was renamed the Central Graphic Arts Building, the anchor tenant of which was Central Paper Company.

In more recent years, the building was used for additional commercial business.


In 2014, the building was purchased by Edison Properties, a real estate leader headquartered in Newark since 1956.


Newark Mayor Ras Baraka attended a “wall-breaking” ceremony kicking off construction of Ironside Newark, calling the Edison Properties’ development, “a transformative 21st century workplace that supports the city’s shift to a dynamic and walkable 24/7 community.”


Edison Properties relocates its headquarters into the Ironside Newark building to become the first company to conduct operations there.

Entry to the building is managed by electronic access control points. A fully-integrated electronic access control system is used in the building, which combines access control, CCTV, and alarm monitoring.

Connectivity and Collaboration

Connectivity has been factored into the design of the building with dual points of entry, a diverse riser system, emergency power, common space Wi-Fi, and more. Ironside Newark has access to an unrivaled network of fiber-optic providers such as Verizon, AT&T, Altice, CenturyLink, and others. In addition, a redundant 10 Gigabits per second Internet connection is available to all tenants through the Newark Fiber program—a unique offering that makes the building an ideal setting for tenants with technology-driven needs.


In addition to onsite retail and dining options, additional casual and fine dining establishments and other retailers are a short walk away.

Interior Column Spacing

Each floor has 24’ X 20’ structural bays.

Live Floor Load

The building features reinforced concrete floors with capacities that far exceed typical retail and office requirements.

“The redevelopment of this building from a vacant warehouse into a cutting-edge commercial and retail a testament to the progress occurring throughout downtown and beyond.”
