Several new small businesses soon will open on downtown Camden’s Market Street.
Improvements are planned on the sites first. Three of the spaces are owned by Ashton Alexander Properties and two by Market West 1, which will get funding for the upgrades via New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s Business Improvement Incentive program.
The program was designed to help landlords and newly-established businesses take advantage of increased economic momentum in designated Garden State Growth Zones. Other GSGZs are located in Atlantic City, Passaic, Paterson and Trenton.
“With Subaru’s new headquarters taking shape at one end, and the new waterfront development rising at the other, Market Street businesses are seeing increased foot traffic and investors are recognizing new opportunities on Market Street and other downtown locations,” said Senior GSGZ Development Officer Christina Fuentes.
