Assembling properties into development sites and planning buildings for the completed sites is a driving focus of Edison Properties’ principles and its professional team. Few other owners have the patience and capital to assemble the largest possible sites, and there is land sufficient for the development of more than 25 buildings on Edison’s existing properties.

While architects, engineers, mortgage lenders and building contractors are key parts of this process in urban areas, Edison Properties precedes all of them – visualizing locations with the size and versatility to accommodate future development. Edison then addresses the difficult task of acquiring a series of fragmented properties, gaining possession, clearing buildings and developing interim uses, such as surface parking, with the ultimate goal to create the largest possible development site. In addition, Edison is constantly engaged in the process of creating value by securing land use and zoning approvals for its existing and new properties.

Examples of the land assembly and site preparation process resulting in new buildings include:

Ironside Newark, Newark NJ Edison Properties is converting The Newark Warehouse–built in 1907–into Ironside Newark.

Ironside Newark will have two roof decks: a shared terrace with access to a rooftop conference and entertainment center for all office tenants and a private penthouse terrace for the 7th floor office tenant occupying the new 20-foot high glass addition. Construction is well underway with scheduled completion in the Fall of 2018.
