“This development project will transform this portion of the waterfront, bringing life & activity to this part of our community. It will preserve the historic post office building and its operation as a postal facility. It will provide a safe, tree-lined, aesthetically pleasing route to the waterfront along Newark Street. The new sidewalk along Sinatra Drive will align and fully connect to the sidewalks fronting all the buildings to the north.
The developer and the U.S. Post Office came to an agreement to build on this site over 6 years ago. So this project has been a long time in coming. Today, the agreement between the City and the developer has yet to be approved. When opportunities such as this present themselves, it is important for our elected officials to act expeditiously to ensure that they are not lost.”
– Ron Hine, Executive Director and Founding Member, Fund for a Better Waterfront
