On May 8th, 2006, Meritage Properties acquired American Metro Center, a 487,072 SF office building in Hamilton, NJ. This historic property was originally constructed in 1918 as a manufacturing facility for American Standard Company and has been completely renovated to first-class office space. The property offers a combination of an attractively restored original factory exterior with the convenience of modern interior construction, including rehabilitated physical plant and new building systems and interiors, all designed to highlight the uniqueness of the space, which includes full height window lines, exposed high ceilings and skylights.
Situated immediately adjacent to the Hamilton Train Station and one quarter mile west of exit 65 of I-295/95, American Metro Center tenants benefit from superior access to both mass transit and the area highway system. Tenants utilizing the Hamilton Train Station have direct connection to Trenton (10 minutes), Philadelphia (40 minutes), New York's Penn Station (50 minutes), and Washington DC (2 1/2 hours). In addition, commuters from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, save themselves approximately 30 minutes each way as they can avoid the heavily congested Princeton corridor along Route 1. With the property located just 5 miles south of Princeton, Tenants avoid local traffic with easy access around the city from the NJ Turnpike, I-295, and I-95.
