Cooper’s Ferry Partnership is a development arm for the city of Camden, New Jersey. When they decided to enter the competition for Amazon’s second campus they wanted to create a program to include 8,000,000 SF of office and amenity. EwingCole designed the campus with a focus on the waterfront property and planned 6,000,000 SF of office and amenity space. The campus lies between the city and the Delaware river and is divided by an industrial facility and the Benjamin Franklin bridge. On the city side, a commercial development strengthens the city street, while at the river’s edge, a boardwalk ties together the striated configuration.
"We were very interested in making this project a statement that reflected Camden’s strong mandate to move in the direction of sustainability and green building. EwingCole heard what we said and took everything about ten steps further."
