Trenton, NJ — Fennelly Associates, one of New Jersey and Pennsylvania’s most experienced and successful independent full-service commercial real estate service providers, announces it has negotiated the sale of 240 West State St., a 240,000 s/f office building in Trenton. The buyer plans to redevelop the 16-story property into a multifamily building planned for completion in 2026.
Situated at the intersection of Calhoun St., West State St. and Rte. 29 across from the Calhoun Bridge, 240 West State St. is one of the tallest buildings in downtown Trenton. The property is just under two miles from the Trenton Transit Center and the West Trenton Train Station with access to New York City and Philadelphia was originally constructed as a hotel in 1969. It was most recently utilized as an office building. Aiming to build upon the continued demand for new housing in downtown Trenton, Fennelly Associates worked to attract a buyer interested in the adaptive reuse of the property.
The buyer’s plans will include a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments paired with a robust amenity package including a fitness center, pool and ground floor cafe. In addition, the company will renovate the building’s enclosed parking garage.
Fennelly Associates president Jerry Fennelly, SIOR, said, “For decades, we have harnessed our expertise and creativity to bring investments and businesses into Trenton. We were honored to bring the sale of 240 West State St. across the finish line, and we are excited to watch its transformation into a point of pride for the local community.”
