Camden County Commercial Real Estate

Camden County Commercial Real Estate

Camden County, one of New Jersey’s newest counties, has a rich history that predates its existence, is the home to several leading educational and medical institutions. Camden County commercial real estate is among the most sought after in the South Jersey region, for a variety of reasons.

The Camden County region is just across the Ben Franklin Bridge from the city of Philadelphia, and is served by a major highway system that includes the NJ Turnpike, I-295, I-676, and NJ Routes 38, 70, and 73. Wherever you are in Camden County, it is generally easy to get to your place of business.

Camden County was formed in 1844 and only Ocean (1850) and Union (1857) are newer among the 21 New Jersey counties. The land that now makes up Camden County was part of Burlington County, one of the two original counties of the West Jersey colony created in 1681.

In 1844, Camden County was broken off from Gloucester County, which itself had been broken off from Burlington County in 1686. Camden County took its name from the First Earl of Camden, England – Sir Charles Pratt – a radical 18th Century lawyer, judge, and politician who supported the colonists during the American Revolution.

Camden County offers a wide talent pool of college graduates as potential employees with highly sought after skills. There are several well-respected colleges and medical schools in Camden County, all but one affiliated with New Jersey’s two largest research universities, Rutgers University – with its main campus in New Brunswick, Middlesex County – and Rowan University – based in Glassboro, Gloucester County. Most of these subsidiary institutions of higher education are in a several-block area of the downtown/waterfront area of Camden City, the county seat.

Rowan University has two campuses in Camden City and a third in the nearby Camden County borough of Stratford. Rowan University at Camden offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees while – just blocks away – the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University is a four-year medical school that was created in 1975. The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, which opened in 1976, is the state’s only osteopathic medical school.

Camden County College, a two-year public community college offers more than 100 different Associates’ Degrees. It was founded in 1967 with its main campus in the Blackwood section of Gloucester Township, and has since opened satellite campuses in Camden City and Cherry Hill Township.

Camden County covers 222 square miles, to place it as the 17th largest among the 21 New Jersey counties. However, in terms of residents, Camden County is the eighth most populous county in New Jersey with a 2010 U.S. Census population of 513,000. Despite its size, Camden County is a popular region for residents. With the cities of Camden, Cherry Hill, and others, the region offers something for every type of business property investor.
