Advance Realty Unveils TransitScreen Real-Time Transportation Display in One Gateway Center’s Modernized Lobby
Leading Owner and Developer Demonstrates Commitment to Providing Tenants with Technologies That Enhance the Workplace
NEWARK, N.J. (Oct. 20, 2016) — Reflective of a commitment to providing tenants with cutting-edge technologies to enhance the workplace, Advance Realty has unveiled TransitScreen, a real-time display of mass transit options, at One Gateway Center, its landmark, state-of-the-art office tower in downtown Newark, New Jersey.
TransitScreen’s live transportation display provides tenants with real-time information from NJ Transit rail and bus, Amtrak, Zipcar, and Uber, as well as walk times to stations, showcased on a dedicated 40-inch high-definition television in the building’s recently modernized lobby.
“Throughout our portfolio, we strive to provide tenants with the latest technologies that make their employees’ lives easier,” said Rick Zack, Advance Realty’s managing director of property management. “One Gateway Center’s location in the heart of downtown Newark, across from Penn Station, calls for a state-of-the-art transportation display like TransitScreen. Thanks to the building’s skywalk connection to Penn Station, tenants have the ability to get anywhere in the world without stepping outside, and this technology will only enhance that level of convenience.”
TransitScreen COO Ryan Croft stated: "We are proud to work with innovative firms like Advance Realty to better inform Newark employees, residents, and visitors of their sustainable transportation options."
TransitScreen National Accounts Manager Jay Tedino added: “The installation at Advance Realty’s One Gateway Center resonates with Mayor Baraka’s challenge to the private sector to further the city’s mission of becoming ‘Newark 3.0’ — a Smart City embracing technologies of the future.”
A 26-story, Class A building, One Gateway Center offers exceptional features such as a fully enclosed direct skywalk connection to Newark’s Penn Station, which serves Amtrak, NJ Transit and PATH trains, and offers direct access to Manhattan — both Downtown and Midtown — in 20 minutes. Located in the heart of Newark’s business district, One Gateway Center is also unique as the only office building in the Gateway complex that offers secured, covered parking.
One Gateway is situated in close proximity to the New Jersey Turnpike (Interstate 95), Interstates 280 and 78, the Garden State Parkway, Routes 1 and 9 and Route 21/McCarter Highway. Additionally, the building offers convenient access to Newark Liberty Airport and attractions such as Prudential Center and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
A 25-room Hilton Hotel and Conference Center are on site, and the complex also features a 30,000-square-foot retail concourse that includes a pharmacy, banking, dining, a NYSC fitness center, a copy center and other upscale amenities.
