Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD)

Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) aims to re-develop Lincoln Park—an 11-acre, four-block, former industrial site in Newark—into a “green” arts and cultural district.  LPCCD’s plan, which is based on the community’s vision, includes sustainable mixed-income housing units, annual music festivals, historic restoration projects, urban agriculture, and green jobs.  Successes to date include the completion of 10 LEED certified buildings encompassing 84 units, the creation of an annual Lincoln Park Music Festival (which now attracts over 50,000 people a year), and the development of the Lincoln Park Fossil Free Learning Lab, which serves as the Department of Labor’s North Jersey satellite for Green Job Training and offers green-focused workshops and training to underprivileged and/or unemployed area residents.
