TRENTON – Governor Phil Murphy, Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver, State Treasurer Liz Muoio, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes, Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora, New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA) Executive Director Melanie R. Walter, RPM Development representatives, and state and local officials today celebrated the groundbreaking for historic 150-170 South Broad Street and the historic Van Sciver Building in Trenton. 

“This is an exciting day for the City of Trenton, Mercer County, and the State of New Jersey,” said Governor Murphy. “The redevelopment of this historically significant site, with new housing units and retail space, marks a new chapter in Trenton’s revitalization.”

“This project goes beyond redevelopment. It is community building,” said Lt.
