with Michael Walker

Join us May 17th with special guest, George Sowa
An Undiscovered Metropolis. Trenton is a small, 7.5-square-mile city that is rich in the history of the American Revolution and social upheaval. Situated along the Delaware River and 70 miles and 40 miles respectively from sister cities New York and Philadelphia, Trenton has one of the hottest and most affordable housing markets in the United States. With its robust arts community, multiculturalism, and brilliant legacy of industrial innovation, Trenton’s local economy is seeing renewed interest from real estate developers, entrepreneurs, prospective homeowners and renters who seek the kind of urbanism that is breathing new life into America’s post-industrial cities. George Sowa, founding CEO of the public/private partnership Greater Trenton, and architect John Hatch of HHG Development Associates, developer of Roebling Lofts, will talk about their impactful work, the hard data and facts that point to Trenton’s renaissance, and why New Jersey’s capital city has truly become a desirable destination.
