West Electronics

Burlington City NJ

Formerly the J.F. Budd Baby Shoe Factory, this four-story factory building was converted into 36 new, affordable residential units for seniors. Each private unit offers a fully handicapped-adaptable environment, including full kitchens, private bathrooms, and spacious living rooms. Ten percent of the units at West Electronics are fully handicapped accessible. Common laundry areas for residents are located on two of the four floors.

Included in the building’s renovation were beautifully restored bead-board ceilings, exposed brick walls, and new custom windows milled to match their original profiles. A large, multi-purpose community room, conference room, and on-site management offices were also incorporated into the program. The restoration of this important Burlington City landmark represents a successful reclamation of the community’s past and blends seamlessly with its surrounding Delaware River landscape.  This building provides wonderful new living opportunities for local area seniors.
