Metropolitan Inn

Burlington City NJ

The renovation of the former Burlington City Hotel and Tavern in downtown Burlington City—an historic landmark building originally built in 1740—into the new Metropolitan Inn represented a number of significant achievements for this fast growing New Jersey township.

While successfully restoring the original character and distinctive charm of the original tavern, the project reconnects the historic structure with its downtown context, providing 16 new, affordable, handicapped-accessible apartments for seniors, as well as mixed-use commercial retail spaces at the ground floor.

Among the many improvements to the Metropolitan Inn are fully-restored original windows, allowing for an abundance of natural daylighting in each unit, a beautifully-restored original oak staircase, extant to the original building, and a completely refurbished tavern, with vintage bar and a decorative tin ceiling.
