The highly anticipated Camden tower is nearing completion, bringing 18 stories of office space to the waterfront, with views of Center City and Society Hill across the river.
And, thanks to Philly photographer Christopher Kao, we have some images of the waterfront’s tallest new building in its final stages of construction.
The tower sits at 2 Cooper Street in Camden, just behind the new American Water headquarters. Up until October, the building was being developed by Liberty Property Trust, and funded by $245 million worth of tax incentives, approved by New Jersey’s state Economic Development Authority.
But Liberty Property Trust backed out in the fall, deciding to sell the property to affiliates of NFI Corp., Conner Strong & Buckelew, and the Michaels Organization, who will have their offices there, according to Philly Business Journal. The new owners gave the project a new name: Triad1828 Centre, a nod to Camden’s 1828 beginnings, the year when it was incorporated as a city. The project is expected to wrap up late this summer, and workers will start moving into the space in June.
Kao, who runs the site, Philly by Drone, frequently takes drone photos of buildings in and around Philly that are nearing completion or just wrapped up construction, like the W and Element hotels, and the Comcast Technology Center.
This new series of images shows the Camden tower from every angle, giving an indication of just how big the building really is when compared to the Ben Franklin Bridge and other Camden waterfront structures.
