Yeah, those oil-drilling rigs kinda give away that photo's actual location as Big D (as opposed to Little D, our very own sprawling megalopolis on the Delaware). Not to mention the incredible urban density and charm reflected in that photo.

Unfortunately, there appears to be no Wendy's in the vicinity.

This sounds crazy...but how cool would it be if they used the new buildings to help anchor the original idea of making a tram connection to penn's landing. The BF bridge is a nice path to walk, but it lacks direct access to the water fronts. When getting on, you have to go BLOCKS to access it.

Penn's Landing is more vibrant these days, but even if Camden provides density on one end, it's still lacking at that point on the Philly side.

any tram would have to also link link with the MFL - maybe Penn landing and second and market stop.

I think the riverline runs close so maybe no need for a second stop in NJ with Patco

I remember I passed Camden with the Greyhound bus to Philadelphia in 1998. It really felt like a sleepy town, so these new towers will probably do good for the city.

You need to come back soon...a lot will change and have change, especially in downtown Philly.

Apartment market looks strong

Quote:
In Philadelphia, construction, renovation, and acquisition of multifamily rental units continues.

Eli Rosen, senior vice president of Gebroe-Hammer Associates, recently was involved in arranging more than $60 million in sales encompassing more than 350 units throughout the city's central and western neighborhoods.

These included Garden Court Plaza, a 146-unit, 13-story 1920s-era building at 47th and Pine Streets, and Roosevelt Apartments at 2216-2222 Walnut St.

In 2015 thus far, Rosen and managing director Joseph Brecher brokered sales totaling $128 million and 1,250 units.

"Investor appetite has been insatiable, and the tenant base of young professionals continues to absorb new product metro-wide at a historic pace," Rosen said.

Investor activity "ignites in a dependable Philadelphia market" is how real estate investment services firm Marcus & Millichap put it.

What makes this market so dependable?

"Healthy economic indicators are driving growth in the Philadelphia economy," said Marcus & Millichap's fourth-quarter outlook.

The local unemployment rate has reached its lowest level since the recession, the firm's report said, pushed down by corporate expansion. The Philadelphia workforce will grow 1.2 percent in 2015, or by 35,000 new positions, it added.

Last year, this region added 45,400 jobs to the market, led by gains in the education and health-services sector, Marcus & Millichap noted, and the growth encouraged developers to accelerate the pace of construction, with builders concentrating on the high-rent Center City market.

On the drawing board at the Camden waterfront is developer Liberty Property Trust's multiuse project, which will include office, retail, and hospitality space as well as more than 200 residential units. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2016, with completion tentatively scheduled for 2019.

Liberty Property sees lots of interest in Navy Yard, Camden projects

http://www.bizjournals.com/philadelp...strial.html#i1

Quote:
This year it (Liberty Property Trust) 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.

This is a better project from LPT, in the fact that this project has the potential of not only giving Camden beautiful condo towers on the waterfront, but those towers can reverse Camden's population decline and brain drain, as well as bringing the middle class back into the city limits to restore the city's tax base, and maybe even some affluent residents as well.

What Camden really needs is a train station similar to the one built in Trenton. The difference is that the train station would be a hub serving all points to the Jersey Shore (Atlantic City, Ocean City, Wildwood, LBI, and Cape May) as well as communities in South Jersey. It would be very similar to the old train station on the waterfront in it's use and would be connected to the PATCO system!!!

You mean kinda like the Walter Rand Transportation Center that already exists?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter...rtation_Center

Quote:
The Walter Rand Transportation Center is a transportation hub located at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Broadway in Camden, New Jersey. It is served by the River LINE, the Broadway Station of the PATCO Speedline, New Jersey Transit buses and Greyhound intercity buses.

wanderer34: Train station in Camden serving the Shore line doesn't work due to the geography of the line. (30th St Station to NJ via the Delair Bridge in Port Richmond to Pennsauken, to Cherry Hill)

SJPhillyBoy has it correct. Walter Rand serves PATCO, the RiverLine and pretty much all NJTransit buses that connect South Jersey to Philadelphia as well as the future Glassboro line.

Currently there is no rail service whatsoever in Camden. but there was an old rail station where the curent Entertainment Center stands. That station used to link all points in South Jersey!!! They never called Camden "The Hub of South Jersey" for nothing!!! The current WRTC is nothing more than a glorfied bus station with a connction to PATCO service. A major upgrade for the WRTC is sorely needed if Camden wants to come back and be relevant again!!!

Liberty Property Trust gets first planning approvals for Camden project

Quote:
Liberty Property Trust has received its first approvals from Camden's Planning Board for the $1 billion mixed-use project it plans along the Delaware waterfront.

The board granted approval Thursday for Liberty's subdivision plan for 16 waterfront acres and for the development's first office building, a five-story, 219,000-square-foot structure being designed by Robert A.M. Stern, said John Gattuso, Liberty's regional director.

The plans also need to be be approved by the Camden City Council.
