“The Broad Street Bank Building is the only example of an early 20th-century skyscraper in Trenton. It was built in three phases: an eight-story structure in the style of Louis Sullivan built in 1900, followed in 1913 by a 12-story addition, and by another 8-story addition in 1923. The additions use architectural details from the original structure so the entire building appears as one cohesive design. The building includes a number of city milestones. Besides being the first skyscraper in Trenton, it had the first steel superstructure (built of I beams invented in Trenton), the first elevator, and the first revolving doors. It stands today as an important reminder of Trenton’s prosperity in the first half of the 20th century.” – Preservation New Jersey

Note: The building is now being used as a luxury apartment community.
