On September 24. 2015, Liberty Property Trust, the powerhouse developer behind Philadelphia’s Comcast Center, the Navy Yard rehabilitation, and other major projects, announced a deal to build a complex of offices, apartments, retail stores, and a hotel on a stretch of Camden’s waterfront.
Gov. Christie will join Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd, Liberty CEO William Hankowsky, and others in making the announcement at Camden’s Adventure Aquarium, city officials confirmed.
The development will sit next to the aquarium, and between the ferry terminal building and the foot of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.
Preliminary architectural renderings shared with The Inquirer depict a series of buildings, two with skyscraper-like towers that would offer views of the Philadelphia skyline.
The project will include 1.5 million square feet of office space and more than 200 residential units, one individual said.
