For Trenton Tract
J.G. Petrucci Co. of Asbury Park has been chosen by the City of Trenton as redeveloper for a seven-acre industrial tract along this city’s northeastern border with Lawrence Township. Known as the Enterprise Avenue Redevelopment Area, the site consists of former industrial facilities once operated by Carter Wallace and Federated Metals.
J.P. Petrucci plans to put up two 54,000-square-foot light industrial buildings designed for from two to four tenants. A public greenway is also part of the plan, which calls for a variety of green and sustainable design elements.
The site comes with a number of incentives, including low-interest state loans and grants, sales and use tax exemptions, and tax credits tied to job creation.
The former structures at Carter Wallace have been demolished, permits for work have been obtained, and environmental investigation work has been conducted.
Trenton plans to construct and maintain a greenway along Assunpink Creek, which will serve as a buffer between recreational space and the light industrial activities.
