International film, television and music star Queen Latifah, aka Dana Owens, had a vision in 2006 while driving past a partially vacant lot while visiting her old hometown of Newark, NJ. Latifah turned her vision into a reality in 2022, when construction began on the first phase of RISE, a multi-unit residential building at 650 Springfield Avenue, intended to address the residential housing shortage in Newark. RISE is an acronym for "Rita Is Still Everywhere," honoring Latifah's late mother.
GonSosa Construction is partnering on the RISE project with Queen Latifah’s development company, Blue Sugar. Phase 1 of the project is a three-story building designed to look like a townhouse cluster, containing a dozen market-rate apartments. The rest of the project will be completed gradually, with affordable units being built in 2023. When the project is completed in early 2024, RISE will comprise 60 two- and three-bedroom market-rate apartments in four townhouse clusters, 16 affordable units in a separate building, and space for healthcare, professional offices, and nonprofit organizations. Rent for the market-rate units will start at approximately $1,800 per month.
