Princeton Hydro To Relocate Its Headquarters To Trenton’s Historic Roebling Wireworks Carpentry Shop

A significant economic development milestone for the city, the redevelopment of this historic site by Hx2 Development will begin this Spring and features historic architecture and state-of-the-art finishes by Trenton Architecture and Planning firm Clarke Caton Hintz

Trenton, N.J. - In Trenton’s Wirerope District, the historic Roebling Carpentry Shop will be transformed into three floors of unique, state-of-the-art office space while maintaining the character and features of the original brick and heavy timber building. Princeton Hydro and Hx2 Development are pleased to announce the signing of a lease, where the firm will relocate its headquarters from Ringoes, NJ to Trenton, NJ and occupy approximately 9,000 sf of this building (Building 110). Construction on this unique project has kicked-off, with move-in slated for January 2022. This move by Princeton Hydro will result in the relocation of 30+ jobs to Trenton. It will bring to life a building that has been vacant for more than 25 years and adapting its use from industrial to transit-oriented, modern office space.

The new tenant, Princeton Hydro, is a water resources engineering and natural resources management small business committed to changing our ecosystems, quality of life, and communities for the better. The firm was formed in 1998 with the specific mission of providing integrated ecological and engineering consulting services and offers expertise in natural resource management, water resources engineering, geotechnical design & investigation, and regulatory compliance throughout the Northeast.

“From restoring ecosystems and improving the water quality to providing sound geotechnical engineering and designing for resiliency, we are passionate about our mission and the services we provide. With so much character and opportunity, our new space will enable us to increase our regional reach and partner with more clients that share our values,” said Geoffrey Goll, President of Princeton Hydro. “After looking at many properties, we fell in love with this space. It is the perfect mix of character, history, and location, and it fulfills our desire to be a part of the revitalization of the City of Trenton. We’re excited to meet our new neighbors and look forward to getting involved with the local community.”

The project, being constructed by Trenton-based Hx2 Development and designed by Trenton-based Architecture and Planning firm, Clarke Caton Hintz, has received enormous support and encouragement from the City of Trenton and Greater Trenton, the local organization dedicated to advancing revitalization efforts in the City.

 “We’re very excited Princeton Hydro has picked the Capital City as its new home and look forward to seeing this historic site reclaim its status as a bustling center of commerce and ingenuity,” said Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. “We hope this is one of many new businesses looking to take advantage of Trenton’s unique combination of historic architecture, transportation routes, cultural amenities, and proximity to government agencies.”

The completion of Building 110 represents the next step in the exciting redevelopment of Roebling Center, which includes five historic industrial buildings on Block 3 of the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company. Phase 1, completed in 2018, included the opening of Roebling Lofts, a unique 138-unit loft apartment building located in Building 101 of the Roebling Complex.

“It’s great to work with a client like Princeton Hydro, with their strong commitment to sustainability, collaborative and innovative workspaces, and new technologies. Their new offices are going to be extraordinary!” said John Hatch, Principal of Clarke Caton Hintz.

Managing principal of Hx2 Development, David Henderson, described the significance of Princeton Hydro’s move, “We are very excited to welcome this regionally prominent consulting firm to Roebling Center and to Trenton! In Building 110, we are providing this unique firm with unique space that has extraordinary historic character, including heavy timber structure, huge windows, skylights, and wonderful brickwork as well as state of the art building systems and exciting finishes.”

“We are proud to welcome this terrific firm to the City of Trenton and are especially pleased that they moved here because of our wonderful transportation network, our convenient location, and our extraordinary history and architecture!” said George Sowa, CEO of Greater Trenton. He added, “This move represents a wonderful partnership between a professional firm with big ideas and commitments, the hard work of City staff, and Greater Trenton’s assistance with marketing and logistics. This is a win-win for all involved and we are excited to welcome Princeton Hydro to Trenton!”
