Berger Organization announced recently that a 450,000-square-foot office tower in downtown Newark is currently in the planning stages for extensive renovations.

The renovations at 33 Washington St. will comprise all 19 floors and extend out to the street.

The office tower was acquired in March 2017 by the Berger Organization, a real estate development and management firm based in Newark.

The property sits on 1.6 acres and is across the street from Washington Park in the James Street Commons Historic District. The building's tenants are a mix of leading companies, including those in the technology sector. The building also has a fitness center, cafe, shared conference rooms and on-site parking.

Planned renovations include:

  • All new central systems – HVAC, elevators, lighting, security;
  • Updated lobby;
  • Digital signage kiosks;
  • A new streetscape;
  • Fit-outs for Newark’s emerging high tech tenant base.

“The demand for Class A office space in Newark continues to grow and 33 Washington’s location and amenities make it a highly desirable address for companies that want to be downtown,” said Miles Berger, CEO of Berger Organization. “We are also very excited about new developments within the neighborhood and what those will mean for the city’s business community.”

The property is two blocks from Newark Broad Street commuter light rail and half a mile from Newark Penn Station.
