Hamilton  Township Takes Creative and Unique Step to ‘Bring’ New Businesses into Community…Literally

Hamilton Township, NJ to Host Special Tours of its Available Commercial Properties; Town Looks to Attract Potential Developers and Spur Investment, Job Creation and Economic Opportunities in New Jersey’s 8th Largest Town 


(Hamilton) – Local officials in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, NJ – New Jersey’s 8th largest town – are taking a unique step to ‘bring’ new businesses into town…literally!  


Hamilton’s officials and its Economic Development Advisory Commission are working to bring in potential developers and business entrepreneurs from beyond its local market for a FREE, special guided tour of the town’s available commercial buildings and land through an exciting event entitled “Opportunity is Knocking in Hamilton Township” on Wednesday, September 15, 2010.  The town is confidently optimistic that their creative marketing effort will lead to greater economic investment, additional commerce and more job opportunities for residents in their already vibrant community.

“Opportunity is Knocking in Hamilton Township” will consist of two, specially-guided bus tours.  A morning tour beginning at 8:00 AM with a complimentary breakfast and brief presentation will feature larger-scale commercial sites available across Hamilton, while an afternoon tour beginning at 12:30 PM will include a complimentary lunch and show available retail locations within the town.  Both tours will highlight the many existing community assets that make Hamilton such a great place in which to do business.   

Tour-takers will learn about some of Hamilton’s special business zones, which includes a recently created Arts and Cultural District overlay zone, and future land use plans in other areas of the community.  Attendees will also receive informational packets filled with demographic information, local market data and broker information for available properties, as well as have the chance to speak directly with members of Hamilton’s Economic Development team, town planners and local land use officials.

“Hamilton Township is an excellent place to locate your business in and possesses many commercial real estate treasures that are just waiting to be discovered,” says Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo, who owned and operated businesses in the community for over three decades, in addition to being a former Executive Director of the town’s non-profit Hamilton Business Partnership organization.  “This is a great opportunity for business leaders, developers and entrepreneurs to see our community first-hand, view available properties and learn about why Hamilton is an excellent economic market for their business to grow and prosper.”

Hamilton Township is home to over 92,000 residents that are comfortably situated across its nearly 40 square mile community, while still enjoying an average density per square mile that is double the state average.  Hamilton’s average household income is also higher than the state’s average at over $73,000 according to 2008 statistics.  In 2008’s CNN/Money Magazine, Hamilton was ranked as 51st best place in the nation and the 4th best in New Jersey to live, much in part to its many public parks, the community’s low crime rate and its being home to the nationally-renowned sculpture park, the Grounds For Sculpture.

Strategically, Hamilton is well-positioned with the nearby Princeton, NJ market and enjoys an excellent transportation infrastructure along the Philadelphia-New York corridor that includes Interstates 195 and 295, State Highways 33 and 206, US Highway 130, the New Jersey Turnpike, is just minutes from US Route 1 and is home to a first class Train Station.  And the Hamilton market appeals to nearby Princeton-area consumers seeking better prices.
