The new home of Plainfield’s ABC supply is more than simply split face block and high-performance insulated wall panels. Its not just polished concrete floors and dark bronze aluminum storefront systems. Its a symbol for Plainfield, New Jersey’s 4th Ward. In making sure we see the building beyond the structure, we also focus on this project’s value to the community. Its the first phase of a 2-phase, 5 acre development that will ultimately combine with a residential building to help revitalize a 20 year blighted and brownfield site. The design of the building seamlessly incorporates a commercial industrial building into a predominantly residential neighborhood.
The 44,000 sf building with outdoor staging area allows a major, national business to maintain a local presence while not only maintaining existing jobs but also providing more opportunities for workers and small businesses. The development is spearheading the rejuvenation of South Second Street and the Grant avenue corridor.
