Partnering on Revitalization of the RCA Victor Building in Camden

Posted on

 

nipper-building-rca-460x460Kershner Office Furniture is proud to partner with Millennial Partners on the revitalization of the RCA Victor building – affectionately known as the “Nipper” building – in Camden NJ.  The building was constructed during 1916 by the architectural firm of Ballinger & Perrot.  Originally the building was a Victrola cabinet factory and for many years the headquarters of Victor Talking Machine Company, later RCA Victor.  After manufacturing ceased in 1992 the building became vacant and was in danger of demolition.  The building was listed on Preservation New Jerseys “Ten Most Endangered Sites” list.  

The name “Nipper” rehis masters voicefers to the fox terrier who became the trademark of RCA when the painting by Francis Barraud called “His Master’s Voice”was purchased by the British Gramophone Company Ltd. and it’s American affiliate, the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1901.  The building’s tower features four stained glass windows depicting the Nipper trademark – installed in 1915.

 

Christopher DiGeorge of Millennial Partners is transforming the eight-story building into commercial office space.  DiGeorge’s paternal grandfather was employed by Victor – he was a cabinet maker who took the ferry from Philadelphia to Camden.  The buildings first floor may be used to house a Victor museum with shops, while the plans for the eighth floor include a TV studio and other media operations.

This week was the “broker opening” of the building – a time for brokers to tour the space in advance of leasing.  Kershner Office Furniture will partner to assist occupants design and furnish their space.  Kershner also worked with the 76ers on their new practice facility and Innovation Lab in Camden.  Proud to be a part of the revitalization of the Camden!
