Easy Access to the Region

Trenton is strategically positioned halfway between New York and Philadelphia by major roadways like US 1 and I-95 and regional rail and bus lines like Amtrak, NJ Transit and SEPTA, making for easy access to suppliers, customers and workforce.

High Consumer Demand

Within 7.5 square miles, Trenton has a population of 85,000 and a workforce of 28,000 creating a demand for goods and services. 

In addition, the retail leakage is high meaning there is an unmet commercial demand.  $65 million leaves Trenton every year for general merchandise and $22 million leaves Trenton for food and beverages.




The cost of operation in Trenton is low.  While the tax rate is slightly higher than nearby municipalities, the purchase price for property is low as is average SF rental price for retail and for industrial.
