John Roebling, civil engineer and designer of bridges such as the Brooklyn Bridge, moved his family to Trenton, New Jersey, in 1848, where he established a business manufacturing twisted wire cable for a wide variety of engineering applications. This successful business continued as the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company through the mid-twentieth century.
After decades of sitting vacant, Building 101 and the rest of the old factory buildings off of Route 129 in Trenton started renovations into lofts, apartments, and office spaces in March of 2016.
