Elevator Modernization Award – Somerville, NJ

Independence Elevator Company is pleased to announce a contract award to modernize a three-stop traction elevator in Somerville, New Jersey. The elevator will service the office building at the Woolworth Building, a long standing landmark downtown.

The building, built in 1908, consists of a storefront with offices adjacent and above. It was first the home of Woolworth’s Department Store, and has more recently been known as the Somerville Antiques Center. The storefront and facade are currently undergoing a major renovation.  It will soon become the Village Brewing Company, a wonderful addition to downtown Somerville’s up and coming restaurant and entertainment scene.
