What do you guys think are odds that this could happen similar to the renderings? We've seen other large scale projects proposed for the waterfront in Camden. What makes this one different from others that never came into fruition?

The State of NJ essentially guaranteeing that LPT will recover their investment in 10 years. They would be fools not to build it.

Subject to completion of a due diligence process expected to last approximately six months, Liberty would complete the purchase of the entity and could break ground as early as the third quarter of 2016.

Wow! Break ground in Q3 2016? That would be amazing!

Oh wow, the birth of Jersey City for Philadelphia!!

This is HUGE.
Make no mistake, in about 35 years from now, Philadelphia will have that NY vibe with skyscrapers on BOTH sides of both rivers.

Next announcement will have skyscrapers at Penn's Landing.

Congrats Philadelphia!
You have arrived.

They have been doing test bores at this site for the last week or so. I just haven't had a chance to grab pictures.

Camden needs this project to break ground ASAP!!! I can see similar projects from Cooper Point to maybe nearby the Susquehanna Bank Center. The city of Camden needs to utilize it's land for industrial use, as well, preferably south of Kaighn Ave and also utilize whatever vacant land closest to the waterfront as possible, while turning the actual waterfront into Camden's high-rise residential district from Cooper's Point to Kaighn's Point with anemities like restaurants, bars, gyms, and even a supermarket to support the community!!!

A light rail/trolley system similar to the subway-surface along Front St and MLK Blvd via an underground tunnel to a new transportation facility hub consisting of bus, heavy rail PATCO (which should be expanded to Woodbury, Maple Shade, Cherry Hill, and Deptford), and even commuter rail to outlying South Jersey communities in the Jersey Shore, Cape May, and Cumberland County. The light rail would also be extended into the Gateway area!!!


I hope to see all this for Camden!!!

Liberty Property sees lots of interest in Navy Yard, Camden projects
Quote:
This year it exited the Horsham, Pa., office submarket in a $245.3 million portfolio sale of 41 buildings and has departed from South Jersey – though it maintains a growing industrial presence in that market.

The funds it has reaped from the property sales will go toward its development pipeline and acquisitions. It anticipates beginning $500 million to $700 million in new developments next year. In the statement it issued, the company said it is seeing “remarkable interest by high-quality companies” looking at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and its planned waterfront project in Camden, N.J.

“It is safe to say that there is likely to be new development in Philadelphia next year, but we are not announcing any new development now,” Leonard said.

The company currently has 1.7 million square feet in its development pipeline – the largest in its 44-year history – that is 55 percent pre-leased.

Yes, the navy yard would be ideal for development of supertall skyscrapers!
If you overlay two maps (Manhattan and Philadelphia) together, you will see that the navy yard represents downtown Manhattan, while Center City represents Midtown.

Yes, it is possible to have soaring skyscrapers stretching from the navy yard to Center City.
If it did happen, you would see Philadelphia actually become Manhattan.

So yes, this is a possibility.

It's been mentioned that the flight path to the airport sadly precludes too much height at the Navy Yard.

Unfortunately, I don't believe this is possible due to the Navy Yard's proximity to the airport.

I didn't realize that section of South Philly was that close to the airport.
Well, you could relocate the sports stadiums to Penn's Landing and have soaring supertall skyscrapers around Pattison Ave, no?

By the time South Philly is all built up, Camden's waterfront will be lined with towers galore!

It would be OK if they stacked one on top of the other as well.

And test bores were being completed over the past few weeks in the surrounding lots as well.

They were doing test bores this morning on the southern most parking lot next to the old Susquehanna Bank building.
