Earlier this month, Rutgers University announced a proposed makeover of its Newark campus that would bring a pedestrian walkway between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Military Park. Also, after nearly a decade of the city’s courting the high-end grocer, a Whole Foods is moving into a long-empty building downtown.
