Shaquille O’Neal is partnering with a development firm to build a high-rise apartment building in downtown Newark.

It’s one of a number of projects O’Neal and Boraie Development are working on in New Jersey.

The NBA star is a Newark native. Last year he opened a new movie theater after a $7 million renovation.

The apartment building is near Newark’s waterfront. It will be on the site of a building that once held hops for the Ballantine beer company.

The glass high-rise will house 169 units. The building will have a doorman and a fitness center.
