330 Cooper Street at Rutgers University-Camden was designed with the intention of boosting on-campus enrollment and revitalizing the city’s downtown. The 12-story building was the first new student housing in Camden in more than two decades and was designed to house 350 students and includes 7,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level. This housing and retail complex brings new energy to the urban campus and creates critical mass intended to expand to surrounding downtown Camden, encouraging future development. In the mid-1800s, Cooper Street was one of Camden’s most prestigious thoroughfares, lined with beautiful mansions, estates, and gardens. By the late 20th century, its aspect had changed from quiet residential to predominantly institutional and commercial uses which, until recently, was dominated by vacant homes and crumbling factories.
