Princeton Hydro and the City of Trenton hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of our new headquarters office in the historic Roebling Carpentry Shop (Building 110), a significant economic development milestone for the City of Trenton. This state-of-the-art office space on the top floor of the building (approximately 9,000 sf) has been transformed, while still maintaining the character and features of the original brick and heavy timber building.
“The City of Trenton’s location has been strategic throughout the history of the United States, from a major turning point in the American Revolution to a major manufacturing center of the American Industrial Revolution to the development of major bridges throughout the country. It’s the perfect place to inspire our scientists, engineers, and landscape architects to shape the world in the 21st Century.” said Geoffrey Goll, President of Princeton Hydro. “After looking at many properties in the area, we simply 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. And the City, local businesses, and residents have welcomed us with open arms. We’re excited to get to know more of our neighbors and become a positive contributor to the community.”
“The City of Trenton is extremely excited that Princeton Hydro has chosen the Capital City as its new home and we look forward to seeing the historic Roebling Wireworks Carpentry Shop revitalized and rejuvenated into the bustling center of innovation and craft it once was,” said Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. “It’s our hope that other businesses will follow in the footsteps of Princeton Hydro and utilize everything Trenton has to offer, including the City’s cultural amenities, tech savvy workforce, and proximity to feeder universities.”
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 adapt its use from industrial to transit-oriented, modern office space.
The project, 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 are thrilled to welcome Princeton Hydro to Trenton and the opportunities their relocation means for current and future Trentonians. Transforming a former industrial building into modern office space for Princeton Hydro’s new headquarters mirrors the transformation in how and where companies choose to work. Access to multiple transportation options and other amenities found only in urban areas will aid in attracting and retaining quality employees and sustainable growth of Princeton Hydro’s business,” said George Sowa, CEO of Greater Trenton. “We look forward to having them not only in the community, but also of, the Trenton community.”
“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.
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.
David Henderson, Hx2 Development Principal, described the significance of Princeton Hydro’s move, “We are excited to welcome this regionally prominent consulting firm to Roebling Center and to Trenton! In the former Roebling Carpentry Shop, Princeton Hydro has found a unique space that combines historic character–including heavy timber trusses, large factory windows and exposed brickwork–with high-tech building systems, striking finishes and modern amenities.”
