Wilson Building

About The Wilson Building:

The Wilson Building is located in Camden, New Jersey. The building was built in 1926, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 24,1990. The 12-story building was built by John O. Wilson and Joseph Bernhard at a cost of approximately $1,000,000. The building housed stores on the first floor, including Weitzman Liquors. Many persons and businesses of note maintained offices there over the years, including lawyers Samuel P. Orlando, Angelo Malandra, Ralph W. Wescott, and Judge Albert E. Burling. In 1929, the building was sold to the West Jersey Trust Company at a $150,000 profit, and the building was known as The West Jersey Trust Building in the 1930s. The building became vacant in the 1990s. In 2004, Camden’s Board of Education had designs on the site, but they were not allowed to demolish the building and adjacent properties then in use. In 2010, the building was acquired by Dysart Ventures of New York City, New York with plans to upgrade and modernize the building for retail and office use.
