Camden Site Considered for World Trade Center

A group is considering building a new world trade center on a Camden site that formerly housed a state prison.

The Greater Philadelphia World Trade Center announced its plans Monday.

The plan would be to build more than 2 million square feet of space to be used for trade, research and development and neighborhood retailers.

New Jersey knocked down Riverfront State Prison in 2009 to make room for a money-making development on one of Camden’s prime waterfront parcels.

The project developer, Waterfront Renaissance Associates, says it wants to bring more jobs to a city that is among the nation’s most impoverished.

The state Economic Development Authority controls the site now.
