L3 Communications Facility

Completed in October 1992, this state-of-the-art facility consists of a 350,000 square foot administration and research building and a 225,000 square foot operations and production plant. Home to L3 Communications, a high-tech company specializing in secure communication systems and manufacturing expertise for military, government and commercial applications, the center houses more than 1,200 employees and generates $900,000 in tax revenues for the City of Camden.

In 1989, General Electric came to CFDA and threatened to leave Camden unless they could get a state-of-the-art facility at below market prices. CFDA facilitated the negotiations to purchase all of the former RCA buildings and properties at a cost of $4 million, with financing from NJ Economic Development Authority, Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, and Camden County on behalf of the Camden Redevelopment Agency (CRA), which became the owner of this property.
