4 Mercer Street Renovation

This historic Empire-style mixed-use building, former home of the “Town Topics” newspaper, was fully renovated to allow for three apartments on the upper floors for off-campus faculty housing, plus new office space on the ground floor for University administrative use.  All building systems and finishes, as well as basement foundation waterproofing and incoming utilities, were replaced.  A modest brick addition to the east side replaced a current non-compliant egress stair. The design was in accordance with Princeton Historic District guidelines and brought the building into compliance with current fire code.
