Chambers Lofts: Jack Kemp Award Finalist!

Chambers Lofts has been named a ULI Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award Finalist.

Chambers Lofts is an adaptive reuse project in Trenton, New Jersey which leveraged an existing industrial building, the American Cigar Company factory, to create 64 units of mixed-income housing. It was first built by the American Cigar Company in 1902, and served as an economic catalyst for the neighborhood during the golden era of Cuban tobacco manufacturing. A mostly immigrant Italian community grew around the factory’s steady employment opportunities, and workers lived in the surrounding row homes and patronized the neighborhood’s shops.
