Conner Strong, other firms propose $245 million move to Camden

Insurance brokerage firm Conner Strong & Buckelew, which is led by South Jersey power broker George E. Norcross III, has applied for millions in state tax credits in order to move from Marlton to the Camden waterfront, along with the Michaels Organization and NFI, two other South Jersey corporations.

The three companies are collectively requesting $245 million in tax incentives to build an 18-story office tower, along with an outdoor piazza overlooking the Delaware River and Philadelphia skyline across the water. The piazza would have space to hold up to 1,000 people, according to a news release from the firms.

The state Economic Development Authority will determine whether to approve the plans at its regular meeting next week.
