As reported on NJ.com, “after decades of sitting vacant, the old factory buildings are finally getting a second life, much to the relief of local officials and residents.”

Located in the historic Roebling Complex in Trenton,NJ, this project will transform five vacant industrial buildings into a vibrant, mixed-use redevelopment. Located close to Roebling Market and with a light rail station on site, this project is registered with the USGBC, with a target of LEED Gold Certification. The site has been listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places and will receive Federal Historic Tax Credits.

This project will transform these long-vacant historic buildings into a hub of activity, creating a vibrant livework environment with restaurants, entertainment venues and arts programming.

CCH Goes International

RoeblingLofts01

John Hatch, principal with CCH, was recently interviewed by a journalist for an Austrian business magazine. The article discusses Trenton’s historic decline (as well as the historic decline of many American cities), and the current upsurge in major redevelopment projects, including Roebling Lofts in the former Roebling Complex. Designed by CCH, the groundbreaking for the first phase of the project is March 3. The article is also interesting because it underscores European attitudes towards American cities and development practices.

Moorestown’s needs

As published in the Philadelphia Inquirer, NJ Edition, 1/21/2016

Moorestown’s affordable-housing plan is actually two plans — one showing how it would build 386 umoorestown1nits and the other for 406 units (“Moorestown criticized on affordable housing plan,” Friday).

The number 386 comes from the 2014 regulations that were proposed but not adopted by the state Council on Affordable Housing. Because Moorestown did not receive guidance from Superior Court in Burlington County on the number of units needed, the township used a ruling by Superior Court Judge Thomas C. Miller for its plans.

Moorestown also decided that it lacks the land to be required to provide 1,477 new units
— the number the Fair Share Housing Center, an advocacy group, contends the township needs.

Moorestown and other municipalities hired Econsult Solutions to develop affordable- housing numbers. Moorestown’s number, 171, was not available for the November filing deadline. Moorestown’s plans for 386 and 406 units would provide more than double the necessary units.

A special master appointed by Superior Court Judge Ronald E. Bookbinder has recommended that the township zone for 1,313 affordable units. However, the circumstances under which the special master wrote her report have changed.
