New Jersey Realtors recently held a ceremonial groundbreaking at the site of their future headquarters on Hamilton Avenue in Trenton. Key legislators, including Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes, Senate Republican leader Tom Kean, Jr., and Assembly Republican leader Jon Bramnick attended the historic event, as well as 150 members of the association.
“This was a historic day for our association,” said NJ Realtors CEO Jarrod C. Grasso. “We are proud that we will finally be able to call our state capital home in the near future.”
The 20,000 square foot, three-story building is slated to be finished by the end of 2016. The address — 10 Hamilton Avenue — lies in a redevelopment area and is directly adjacent to the Mercer County Improvement Authority. Floors two and three will host staff from NJ Realtors, along with multiple conference spaces and meeting rooms. There will be a designated web conferencing room equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The roof will lead out to a third-floor observation deck to be used for events, meeting space and much more.
The ground floor will be entirely leasable space, open to restaurants, retail, offices and more. The first floor will open out onto an outdoor patio and terrace. Ample parking will flank the length of the lot.
“I am so proud of the direction the association and our membership is headed,” Grasso said. “Our leadership has allowed us to make this leap forward for our membership and invest in a community we believe in. We are proud to be in Trenton and part of the revitalization of this historic community.”
The building was designed by Trenton-based Clarke Caton Hintz and construction management is handled by Barr & Barr. Maser Consulting and the law firm of Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith and Davis have been involved with the project since its conception.Related Articles:
