Mixed-Use Coming to TCPC

On Tuesday a mixed-use project received approval from the Architectural Committee of the Historic Commission, that seeks to unite a diverse assortment of eight vernacular buildings that span the corners of 2nd and Arch streets. The complex once housed the Trenton China Pottery, a wholesaler of restaurant supplies and equipment, well recognized for the faded signage painted on its 2nd street side.

Committee members said their approval was contingent on keeping both the sign and a group of fire escapes on the Arch Street side.  Committee member Shawn Evans termed the painted sign as the "most charming part of the site and absolutely representative of the Old City district."  The Committee is hard pressed on demanding that the exterior envelope remain in tact and unchanged while the interior of the individual buildings are combined to form one unit.
