Two restaurants by Philly chef/restaurateur planned for Camden



Quote:
CAMDEN — Camden's Waterfront already has spectacular views, easy access from South Jersey and Philadelphia and amenities like the Adventure Aquarium and BB&T Pavilion.

It will soon have at least two high-profile dining destinations, as well.

The Schulson Collective, headed by chef and restaurateur Michael Schulson, will open two restaurants in an office tower on the Camden Waterfront that will be the corporate headquarters of Conner Strong & Buckelew, NFI and The Michaels Organization.

Schulson, the driving force behind Izakaya, Harp & Crown and Double Knot, will lead the development and management of the two restaurants. The concepts and other details of the restaurants are still being developed.

“We are excited to have Michael Schulson bring his culinary vision to Camden as our partner in two new restaurants,” George E. Norcross, III, chairman of Conner Strong & Buckelew and Cooper University Health, said in a statement Thursday.

“His talent, vision and business savvy will be key to Camden’s continued revitalization and adds an important next step in Camden’s renaissance.”

"We look forward to introducing exciting and unique dining experiences to the community in Camden,” said Schulson, whose collective manages restaurants in Atlantic City, Florida and Philafelphia. “We are inspired to have teamed up with a group of terrific individuals who share our belief in the transformational power of economic investment.”

The partners in the 18-story office tower have received New Jersey Economic Development Authority incentives worth millions, including $86.2 million over 10 years for Conner Strong & Buckelew, an Evesham-based insurer and benefits consultant led by Democratic power broker Norcross, as well as $79.3 million each for The Michaels Organization and NFI.

The 394,164-square-foot tower — which includes a rooftop helipad, six-level parking garage and open-air piazza on the eighth floor — is now the tallest building on the waterfront. Officials said nearly 1,000 people will work there.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

^I thought the same thing. I know retail is not hot in Camden, but that's a lot of blank walls and driveway. Liberty mailed this one in as they exit the commercial office arena.

Not sure if this affects anything, but it appears a lot of the tax breaks for this Camden development are borderline criminal.

The Tax Break Was $260 Million. Benefit to the State Was Tiny: $155,520.

How a lawyer with deep connections to Democratic politicians in New Jersey helped to dole out hundreds of millions of dollars in state tax credits.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/01/n...n-sheehan.html

Quote:
It was called the Economic Opportunity Act, a measure intended to kick-start the sputtering post-recession economy in New Jersey, particularly in its struggling cities. The state would award lucrative tax breaks to businesses if they moved to New Jersey or remained in the state, creating and retaining jobs.

But before the bill was approved by the Legislature, a series of changes were made to its language in June 2013 that were intended to grant specific companies hundreds of millions of dollars in additional tax breaks, with no public disclosure, according to interviews and documents obtained by The New York Times.

Many of the last-minute changes to drafts of the bill were made by a real estate lawyer, Kevin D. Sheehan, whose influential law firm has close ties to Democratic politicians and legislative leaders in New Jersey.

Mr. Sheehan was allowed by lawmakers to edit drafts of the bill in ways that opened up sizable tax breaks to his firm’s clients, according to a marked up copy of the legislation obtained by The Times, which identifies Mr. Sheehan’s changes.

Incredible! If you would'be shown me this picture 5 years ago, and said "this is Camden," I wouldn't have believed it.

What about this design is suburban?

Though is there some requirement that all the new buildings in this cluster need to be grey? What the hell?

didn't see this mentioned, but you could see a multi-colored lighting pattern on the horizontal lines of the tower this evening. looked fairly sophisticated, so this should add a pretty cool touch to the skyline (which you should see if you look east down market st).

US Tourist: [points to PSFS building] That is an interesting example of 1960's modern architecture.

Person from Philly: ...That was built in 1932

US Tourist:



(lost) US Tourist: [Points at camden tower] Yeesh! 1980's high rise architecture was trash!

Person from Camden: ... That was just build this year.
