Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka to Cut Ribbon at Newark Foundry Workspaces - a late-19th Century Newark Mansion Converted to Co-Working and Professional Office Spaces
Mayor Ras J. Baraka, Deputy Mayor Baye Adofo Wilson, Acting President and CEO Aisha Glover, and All Renovation Construction LLC and the DDBR Group LLC will host a ribbon cutting celebration on April 24, 2017, 1 pm for Newark Foundry Workspaces, the city’s newest co-working space located at 569 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Newark Foundry Workspaces is a 6,200 sq ft late-19th century mansion converted to co-working and professional office spaces. Located in the revitalized High Street District of Newark the mansion has been restored to it’s original grandeur and is poised to become a unique collaborative hub for Newark entrepreneurs and innovators.
“Our goal was to introduce a coworking model in Newark through a unique and underutilized property, this would allow us to successfully showcase our development strategy going forward in Newark” says Newark Foundry Workspaces founder Allan Suarez. “Also our decision to execute came down to the fact that we strongly believe Newark is on the cusp of being recognized as a legitimate tech hub leader and could be a viable alternative to New York City’s overcrowded and expensive coworking options.”
The founders of the Newark Foundry are Allan Suarez, Pietro Calabretta and Robert Demetrio of All Renovation Construction LLC. Together they have over over 30 years of cumulative construction and restoration experience. The core objective for Newark Foundry Workspaces was to restore the mansion to it's original form and reintroduce the property with new technology and efficiency to be used as commercial office and coworking space.
