Fairview Village Camden, New Jersey

Kitchen & Associates performed physical surveys to document the floor plans, elevations and general structural conditions of approximately eighty scattered-site houses in the Historic Fairview Village section of Camden NJ. The surveys and evaluations were used to create permit documents, which were also supplemented by HUD Property Inspection Reports.

Fairview Village – originally known as “Yorkship Village” – was built at the height of World War I was one of the first planned communities built by the U.S. government during the 20th century. Originally build for as housing for shipbuilders, the entire neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The smart planning that went into the neighborhood has been a major force in preserving this community, and it is known in planning circles as an award-winning example of the “Garden City” design.
