State Office Building Projects
In partnership with the New Jersey Department of the Treasury, Division of Property Management and Construction (DPMC), the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is constructing the new Taxation and Department of Health buildings with two new buildings in downtown Trenton.
Construction has begun on the new Department of Health Building at 55 Willow Street, between West Hanover St. and Capitol St. Construction of the new Taxation Building has begun, just in front of the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development Building at 3 John Fitch Way.
During the construction period, residents and commuters are encouraged to frequently check this site for updates on potential impact on local vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

BackGround of the projects
In 2014, at the request of the previous administration, the NJEDA prepared a Feasibility Study to recommend the most cost-effective solution for relocating the departments that currently occupy the State Health and Agriculture and Division of Taxation buildings. After much discussion and consideration with the Division of Property Management and Construction (DPMC), the City of Trenton’s Department of Economic Development, the Capital City Redevelopment Corporation, and other stakeholders, NJEDA settled on the current plan, which involves construction of a new 200,000-square-foot Division of Taxation building on an existing State parking lot at the corner of John Fitch Way and North Warren Street and a new 209,000-square-foot Department of Health building on another existing State lot at the southwest corner of North Willow and West Hanover streets.
Both new buildings are less than five minutes walking distance from the core of downtown and, once complete, will expand the local customer base for Trenton businesses. In addition, by eliminating or repurposing obsolete office space, these construction projects pave the way for future downtown development without removing parcels from Trenton’s city tax rolls or taking up valuable, tax-incentivized private development parcels near the Trenton Transit Center.
