Engineering & design firm moves to Trenton's historic Roebling Carpentry Shop
TRENTON, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora last week celebrated the opening of Princeton Hydro's new office headquarters in the historic Roebling Carpentry Shop (Building 110) last week. This headquarter relocation represents a significant economic development milestone for the City of Trenton.
This 9,000 square foot, state-of-the-art office space on the top floor of the Roebling building has been transformed, while still maintaining the character and features of the original brick and heavy timber building. In addition to being among the first to bring the vacant building back to life, the move will relocate more than 30 jobs to the City of Trenton.
"The City of Trenton is extremely excited that Princeton Hydro has chosen the state's capital as its new home and we look forward to seeing the historic Roebling Wireworks Carpentry Shop revitalized and rejuvenated into the bustling center of commerce it once was," said Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. "It's our hope that other businesses follow in the footsteps of Princeton Hydro and utilize everything Trenton has to offer, including the City's cultural amenities, historic architecture and proximity to government agencies."
The redevelopment of Building 110 is part of the larger revitalization 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.
