Campbell works on expanding headquarters

CAMDEN, N.J. Campbell Soup is expanding its headquarters in southern New Jersey, rehabilitating an industrial brownfield to make way.

The soup company demolished the Sears Tire and Battery building, an auto center about 80 years old contaminated with battery acid and petroleum-based chemicals. It also hoped to demolish the nearby Sears Building and replace it with an office park, but a clothing company bought it before it could.

Campbell is planning to spend $72 million, which includes the cost of constructing a new office tower, while government agencies will spend $23.5 million to upgrade surrounding infrastructure.
