Teachers Village is transforming former parking lots into a sustainably-designed (LEED-ND) dynamic neighborhood that offers opportunities for teachers, students, professionals and visitors to live, work, shop, eat and learn. In Newark, NJ, Teachers Village has transformed the downtown area into a thriving arts and education district.

At a recent ribbon-cutting event, US Senator Corey Booker and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka lauded Teachers Village, the mixed-use community located on five blocks along Halsey Street south of Market Street, for bringing affordable housing, business, art and more to Newark. The development features six new buildings consisting of three new charter schools and a daycare facility, 204 units of rental housing marketed to teachers, and 65,000 square feet of high quality retail in 20 different businesses.

SOS Security is proud to safeguard the nine buildings that make up the Teachers Village development.
