Liberty just received the extension on the project’s due diligence phase from the state of New Jersey, which is providing lucrative incentives through its Grow New Jersey program, according to a Philadelphia Business Journal report by Natalie Kostelni.

By early December, the Liberty should be ready to proceed with roads and utility work ahead of foundation work for a five-story American Water headquarters.

Agreements for three more buildings on the waterfront are also in the works.

Liberty’s original proposal for the 16-acre site called for “a mixed-use community that involves constructing up to 1.7 million square feet of office space in four to five buildings, four parking garages, a hotel with 120 to 140 rooms and 325 apartments.”
