The Military Park Building, acquired in late 2007 by The Berger Organization, is an ultra-modern hi-rise office tower at Sixty Park Place, in the heart of Newark’s bustling central business district, just two blocks from Gateway Center and Penn Station. Both of these major transportation centers provide continuous PATH and NJ Transit service via a 14-minute train ride to Manhattan.
The celebrated Military Park Building also is a desirable office location for federal government agencies and law practices due to it proximity to Government Center, named for Newark’s centralized presence of government and legal buildings. Within walking distance are the Newark campuses of Seton Hall and Rutgers Universities, Rutgers School of Law, New Jersey Institute of Technology and the headquarters for Prudential Insurance Co. The renowned New Jersey Performing Arts Center is one block away.
Featuring a new front façade as well as restored and new exterior windows, the Military Park Building is a prominent fixture on the Newark skyline, especially in the evening when it is showcased with distinguished exterior lighting. Most recently, a $5 million renovation project was launched to upgrade the lobby and core building as well as the elevators. Also added is a state-of-the-art fitness center available for tenants only. Plans are underway to re-open the building’s stylish 11,000-square-foot street-level restaurant space to further enhance the neighborhood’s 24/7 activity.
Offering commanding views of the surrounding city, New York skyline and Military Park, the landmark property is ideal for expanding Newark-based companies as well as New York City-based firms seeking to reduce the cost of doing business in close proximity to Manhattan. Tenant services are complemented by the array of first-class accommodations, as well as business and banquet services and amenities, available at nearby Best Western Robert Treat Hotel, also owned by The Berger Organization.
