There are some major redevelopment projects in Trenton. Here are some of them in pictures.
In June Thomas Edison College broke ground on the Nursing Education Center near downtown Trenton, located on West State St and Calhoun St., on June 19, 2014. The 34, 000 square ft center will include a new nursing simulator laboratory, lecture halls, conference rooms, and a testing center. The Nursing Center has 44, 828 square ft parking garage that will accomodate 98 vehicles.
Located at 216 East State St. (in heart of downtown Trenton) The Bell Tower will be coverted into a mixed used building. The first floor will be used for retail and the six floors above will be coverted to 85 residential lofts.
This is the inside of an abandoned building along route 129 and Hamilton Ave that will be transformed into 190 residential lofts. This particular redevelopment is a part of The Block 3 Project headed by a Trenton based redevelopment firm called HHG.
This abandoned warehouse will be turned into residential lofts. This is apart of the Block 3 Project spearheaded by HHG. It has been reported that the project will bring 900 to 1100 jobs to Trenton. Not seen in the photograph, is the rest of the buildings that will be transformed into commercial buildings, a health club, and a cafe.
On the corner of Chambers and Hamilton, a McDonalds is being built right across street from where the old Trenton high building.
Along Culbertson Ave., allegedly there will be 80 lofts built. I traveled to the street and there is no sign of anything being transformed or rebuilt. However, if a building is going to be transformed–it might be this one. Nothing has been confirmed.
