Construction of New 65K Sq. Ft. Hamilton Clocktower Building Highlights Growing Corporate, Technology, Bio-Tech Sectors in Hamilton
As construction continues on a new 65,000 sq. ft. office building – part of the Hamilton Clocktower Project – Hamilton Township continues to enjoy an expansion of corporate, technology and bio-tech companies.
Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede, who toured the Hamilton Clocktower construction site earlier this week, notes how the project’s progress is symbolic of the continuing growth in these sectors in the township.
“While we are fortunate to have many thriving and expanding retail centers, we are equally fortunate to have several corporate headquarters, along with technology and bio-technology companies that have made the decision to make Hamilton Township their home,” explains Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede. “With the expansion of facilities like the Hamilton Clocktower project, we are continuing to see a healthy diversification of our local economy – which enjoyed the highest ratable growth in the county in 2012.”
Over the past 12 month period, Hamilton Township has witnessed the opening of over 36 new businesses. Last month, Hamilton issued a Certificate of Occupancy for a new Grand Bank on State Highway 33 and a new St. Francis Medical facility for Digestive Disease on Whitehorse-Mercerville Road.
“Many residents might not be aware of some of the corporate headquarters that are based in Hamilton, as well as some of the technology and bio-tech companies right here in our hometown,” says Hamilton Township Director of Economic Development Michael Angarone. “One example that is timely considering it is football season is ESPN’s branch of Emerging Technology, which creates the virtual first down lines and line of scrimmage visuals that fans see during games. Their office is right here, in Hamilton Township.”

“In addition, Hamilton is home to a Verizon Call Center, as well as the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital Hamilton and Capital Health – Hamilton’s outpatient facility, which continue to expand their networks and facilities,” reports Hamilton Township Director of Economic Development Michael Angarone. “And with other sites that could accommodate additional office space for corporate buildings, I believe our community can build further upon the progress in these sectors.”
“As Mayor, I am very excited about the potential for these and other cutting-edge companies to continue to locate, grow and prosper, right here, in Hamilton Township,” says Mayor Yaede. “I believe it shows the strength and vibrancy our local economy and that is Hamilton Township is a place where businesses want to be.”
