 Architect Richard Meier is known for his refined houses and cultural landmarks, like the olympian Getty Center in Los Angeles. But with his latest project Meier is returning to his New Jersey roots.

As The Real Deal previously reported, Meier is currently developing affordable housing and charter schools in downtown Newark across from City Hall, dubbed Teachers Village. When completed the project will bring $150 million of housing, retail and educational facilities to Newark.

One of the four buildings under development, 230 Halsey Street, opened last August and includes two charter schools, according to the New York Times.

“It’s really an ambitious project to bring life and activity to this neglected site,” Meier, who was born in Newark, told the New York Times.

Meier has also recently helped install the Richard Meier Model Museum in Jersey City. The 15,000-square-foot space features some 400 handmade models of projects Meier designed since opening Richard Meier & Partners in 1963. [NYT]Christopher Cameron
