See firsthand three models that have beenused to restore and re-use different parts of the John Roebling & Son'sCompany facilities in Trenton: public sector ownership and public-fundedrestoration, private sector ownership and renovation, and private sectorownership and restoration to the Secretary of the Interior's Standards.
A brief presentation on the Roebling facilities anddevelopment models will be followed by a tour of examples using the threeadaptive re-use models: the original Wire Rope Machine at Roebling Market,future office space at Roebling Center, and the Roebling Lofts. Tour goers willbe able to see residential lofts in various stages of construction and theearly-20th-century cable fatigue machine used by Roebling to test cablestrength, which will be the centerpiece of the Roebling Lofts lounge.
