New Luxury Apartments Coming to Camden Waterfront

11 Cooper is a $48 million luxury apartment community being developed on the Camden Waterfront

$48 Million Market-Rate Residential Community is Latest Sign of Camden's Resurgence

CP Residential announced today that it has closed on a $48 million development deal that will bring 156 new rental apartment homes to the Camden waterfront in an environmentally conscious, amenity-rich mid-rise building.  The development is among the first market-rate apartment communities to be developed in Camden in years, another sign of the city’s resurgence as a live/work/play destination.

“We’re excited that this residential community will offer beautiful, high-quality apartment homes to Camden’s growing workforce and will attract new families and young professionals to the exciting waterfront area,” said John J. O’Donnell, president of The Michaels Organization, one of three firms that comprise CP Residential.

The other partners involved in this much-needed housing--Conner, Strong & Buckelew and NFI--are also partners with The Michaels Organization in The Camden Tower office development currently under construction on the waterfront. The Camden Tower, which is expected to be complete in 2019, will serve as the corporate headquarters for each of the partner firms, bringing a combined total of more than 1,000 employees to the city.

The new residential community, known as “11 Cooper”, will offer 156 apartments, in a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom layouts, in the heart of the city’s booming waterfront district adjacent to The Ben Franklin Bridge. Twenty percent of the apartments will be designated as affordable for those earning 80 percent or less than the area’s median income.

11 Cooper will incorporate the latest green technology, high-end building materials, and energy efficiency. Planned amenities include a residential lobby with 24/7 concierge services, a business center, bike storage, a fitness center, and club room with adjacent roof-top terrace. On-site parking will accommodate more than 190 cars.

The spacious apartments will feature stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and spa-inspired bathrooms. Each residence will have its own in-unit washer and dryer. In addition, 11 Cooper will offer 5,000 square feet of street-level retail space, fronting Cooper Street.

Construction has already begun and leasing is expected to begin in March 2018 with first occupancy planned for April of 2019.
