Crosstown Moves

Princeton Hydro, 1108 Old York Road, Ringoes 08551. 609-915-9425. Geoffrey Goll, president. www.princetonhydro.com.

Princeton Hydro and Hx2 Development announced the signing of a lease, where the firm will relocate its headquarters from Ringoes to Trenton and occupy the Roebling Carpentry Shop, an approximately 9,000-square-foot section of Building 110 in Trenton’s Wire­rope District.

Construction has been kicked off, with move-in slated for January, 2022.

Princeton Hydro’s decision to move into Trenton will result in the relocation of more than jobs, bring life to a building that has been vacant for more than 25 years, and adapt its use from industrial to transit-oriented, modern office space.

Princeton Hydro is a water resources engineering and natural resources management small business committed to changing ecosystems, quality of life, and communities for the better. The firm was formed in 1998 with the specific mission of providing integrated ecological and engineering consulting services and offers expertise in natural resource management, water resources engineering, geotechnical design and investigation, and regulatory compliance throughout the Northeast.

The project, being constructed by Trenton-based Hx2 Development and designed by Trenton-based architecture and planning firm Clarke Caton Hintz has received support and encouragement from the City of Trenton and Greater Trenton, the local organization dedicated to advancing revitalization efforts in the city.

The completion of Building 110 represents ongoing efforts in the redevelopment of Roebling Center, which includes five historic industrial buildings on Block 3 of the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company. Phase 1, completed in 2018, included the opening of Roebling Lofts, a 138-unit loft apartment building located in Building 101 of the Roebling Complex.

Princeton Insurance, 21 Roszel Road, Princeton 08540. 800-334-0588. www.princetoninsurance.com.

Following a move from its longtime home at the corner of Alexander and Rozel roads to 21 Roszel Road, Princeton Insurance has sold its former headquarters building.

The properties, located at 742 and 746 Alexander Road, were sold to Strategic Funding Alternatives LLC, a Moorestown-based commercial real estate investment firm. The two buildings total 110,000 square feet, with approximately 50,000 square feet at 742 Alexander and 60,000 square feet at 746 Alexander.

Princeton Insurance had occupied the buildings since the mid-1980s. JLL negotiated the sale for an undisclosed price.
