NJ Economic Development Authority

Camden, NJ

The Waterfront Tech Center is the first of six planned buildings by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) in Camden’s Innovation Zone. The building was designed as a flexible core and shell that would accommodate different tenant types with varying space needs (from larger build-to-suit tenants to smaller suites for multi-tenants who would share amenities) and a wide range of programmatic uses (office, wet and dry lab research, information technology, scale up and production). This design approach also reflects a balance between centralized building investments and investments that are made by tenants. In addition to the core and shell, all four of the Tech Center’s tenants have received Gold LEED-CI® certification.
