The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) is part of a twelve-acre development conceived to create a new cultural district in Newark and revitalize the city's downtown area and waterfront district.  The performing arts center includes the 2,750-seat Prudential Hall, the 500-seat Victoria Theater, a 3,000 sq ft rehearsal/banquet Chase Room, restaurant spaces, and a public plaza for outdoor programs and events.  Since NJPAC is located along the flight path to Newark International Airport, the owner and architect set stringent acoustical specifications for the exterior wall system.
