The Claremont Tower is home to the F.B.I.'s New Jersey headquarters, housing a staff of over 300 in the upper six floors. The F.B.I. has leased the space for 20 years.
The $83 million structure of red-brick and glass cladding was designed to blend in with older commercial buildings nearby, as well as the recent New Jersey Performing Arts Center. It is envisioned as a catlyst for new development along the city's Passaic River waterfront.
14,000 square feet of shops and restaurants were planned for the street level.
Groundbreaking was on May 14, 2001. #jersey #new #newark #passaic #place
