On December 3, 2005, the Witherspoon Institute purchased a three-story building located at 16 Stockton Street in the heart of the Princeton Boro. There are practically no buildings of this kind available in downtown Princeton. We happened to find the building and negotiate the purchase without the property ever being on the market.
The building will be suitable for occupancy by the summer of 2007. There is a period of lengthy and rather complex negotiations to acquire the necessary construction and use permits, and then there is the remodeling work itself.
This is an important step for an organization that will certainly bear much fruit in the coming years.. Anyone, especially alumni of Princeton University, looking for a worthwhile program to support should consider a gift to the Witherspoon Institute.
