Ruby Match Factory Featured in Curbed Philly

Hot off the presses from Curbed Philly….

“Whenever Jacqueline Buhn talks to a company about moving to Camden, their typical response is this: “Camden?! No way.” Then, she mentions the New Jersey state tax credits that essentially award companies with free rent for 10 years for moving to the city. “Then they say, ‘Wait—how much money?” says Buhn, the principal and CEO of Athenian Razak, a Philadelphia-based real estate company that’s behind the renovation of Camden’s historic Ruby Match Factory at 300 North Delaware Ave.”

Team AthenianRazak Shows Off Our Development Management Game

If you live in the Philadelphia region (and don’t live under a rock), you’ve probably heard that the Philadelphia 76ers are building a new state-of-the-art Training Center along the Camden Waterfront in New Jersey. Included in the Sixers announcement was the news that AthenianRazak has been named as the Development Manager for the new facility. We’ve actually been working quietly in that role with the Sixers for months, assembling a crackerjack team of designers and construction experts, working first on a Philadelphia-based site, and then playing a key role in identifying, evaluating and negotiating the Camden Waterfront location and tax credits package after the Grow NJ legislation was passed last Fall.
