About This Project

Background
Newark Educators’ Community Charter School opened its doors to 200 students in September 2009 with plans to grow to 300 students within two years. The school opened in a newly renovated space that historically had been used as horse stables by residents of the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Work involved rehabilitating the building and increasing the floor space from 18,000 to 28,000 square feet. Much of the historic character of the property was left in place, with exposed brick visible throughout the building. Crawford Street Partners, the organization that owns the property, is leasing it to Build with Purpose, and Build with Purpose in turn is subletting it to the charter school. Newark Educators’ will have the option of buying the school after seven years.
