Advance Realty Joins 2009 NJ Smart Workplaces Winners’ Circle For One Gateway Center in Newark
Award Recognizes Company’s Commitment To Reducing Traffic Congestion and Improving Air Quality Through Work-Site Based Employee Commuting Options
Advance Realty, a leading Northeast U.S. owner and developer of Class A office, mixed-use and flex-space properties, is being honored for its commitment to reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality by promoting work-site based employee commuting options at One Gateway Center, its well known office building in downtown Newark, N.J.
In recognition of Advance’s work in this area, the company has been invited by the State of New Jersey’s Department of Transportation to be part of the 2009 NJ Smart Workplaces winners’ circle. On Thursday, May 7, Advance will be honored, along with other New Jersey employers who have earned the NJ Smart Workplaces designation, during a celebration at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark.
One Gateway Center was constructed to allow tenants and visitors to take advantage of Newark’s convenient public transportation modes. The building also exists along a pedestrian concourse that features numerous shopping and dining options.
“As a company that strives to foster environmentally conscious business practices, we are very proud that One Gateway Center is being recognized for its ability to help reduce auto dependence,” stated Rick Zack, general manager of One Gateway Center. “With direct access to public transportation, available assistance with commuter inquiries and a comprehensive array of onsite amenities – including food service, dry cleaning and banks – this building has helped to curb traffic congestion and improve the air quality by taking more cars off the roads in Newark.”
Newark’s One Gateway Center boasts one of the most strategic locations in New Jersey. Located in the heart of the business district, it’s attached to Penn Station and is at the crossroads of Interstates 78, 24, I-280, the NJ Turnpike and Highways 21, 1 and 9.
One Gateway Center is adjacent to the Seton Hall University Law School and is just blocks from the prestigious NJ Performing Arts Center. It is just minutes from Newark International Airport by car and 20 minutes by PATH to midtown Manhattan.
Home to banks, a hotel, a fitness center, retail establishments and restaurants, One Gateway Center features panoramic views of both Newark and the Manhattan skyline.
