NewPark Specific Plan

Newark, CA | urban design/planning

What does the mall of the future look like? Density, mixed uses, and lively real streets.

Site Plan

The NewPark Specific Plan, developed in collaboration with EMC Planning Group, charts a course for a new mixed-use urban center around a revitalized regional mall. ELS’ strategy transforms vast parking lots into mixed-use parcels, streets, and plazas that support and enhance the core retail asset and deliver public amenities and activities currently not available in Newark. Key to the plan is re-imagining the mall anchors into retail and entertainment destinations that drive circulation inside and outside the mall. Each mixed-use parcel has been designed with flexibility to respond to changing market forces, supporting a variety of office and housing configurations. The plan strategically focuses development opportunity to create a critical mass that can catalyze the larger commercial district.
