Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver and Camden Mayor Victor Carstarphen joined the Parkside Business and Community in Partnership (PBCIP) and New Jersey American Water today for a visit to Parkside’s Haddon Avenue Commercial Corridor, where the first of several revitalization projects in Camden are underway.
The visit highlighted the remarkable progress of the Parkside Neighborhood Revitalization Plan. Within the Revitalization Plan, Donovan Architects have designed:
– 24 mixed-income and mixed-use Apartments
– 8 mixed-use Apartments
– 10 For Sale homes
– 1 Commercial use
In support of the project, New Jersey American Water donated a $950,000 grant to PBCIP. The funds will be aimed at improving housing and economic development opportunities in the Parkside neighborhood. Several single-family housing units within the community are set to break ground before the end of the year.
“This is a wonderful announcement for Camden, and we are excited for this new development opportunity in the Parkside community,” said Camden Mayor Victor Carstarphen. “Parkside Business and Community in Partnership has a long history of doing outstanding work in the Camden Community. Partners and organizations like PBCIP play a key role in helping to bring vibrancy to our city neighborhoods. I commend Governor Phil Murphy, Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver, the Department of Community Affairs, and New Jersey American Water for supporting Camden’s non-profit community and for their ongoing investment in our city’s revitalization.”
