American Water in Camden, NJ
If you want to view the breathtaking sunset behind the Delaware River and the Philadelphia skyline look no further than the new headquarters of American Water on the Camden Waterfront. A 220,000 square foot structure features a design element of a see-through glass storefront that allows both employees and residents of Camden to view the cityscape.
As the revitalization of the Camden waterfront continues, American Water will be moving from Voorhees, NJ to Camden, NJ in September, which means Bellia is busy working to get the space furnished.
The new five-story building is a LEED Platinum building and features a water reuse system, four-story water walls, LED lighting and solar shades and 18 water-filling stations. It also contains co-working and community spaces, an employee cafeteria and a fitness center.
In a recent article written by Phaedra Trethan of the Courier Post, American Water’s presence will be abundantly clear on the Camden Waterfront, “thanks to to 14-foot-high letters spelling out its name atop its building, lit in colors that will coordinate with those on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, Camden City Hall, or in observance of holidays or causes, like pink for breast cancer awareness.”
