The news was announced Thursday by George E. Norcross 3d, the millionaire insurance broker who is chair of Cooper University Hospital and widely viewed as the city’s most powerful political leader.
The restaurants will be housed in the 18-story office complex that is under construction on the waterfront, according to a statement from Norcross. The building is the future headquarters for the South Jersey companies Conner Strong & Buckelew, which is Norcross’ firm, as well as NFI and the Michaels Organization.
The restaurants will open in the fall, according to the statement, and details on the restaurants will be released in the months to come. Schulson could not be reached for comment.
The Camden waterfront has undergone rapid changes in recent years, thanks in large part to a state tax incentive program that drew large companies to relocate in the city, including the defense contractor Lockheed Martin and American Water, which opened an expansive headquarters in December near the Adventure Aquarium.
Schulson, who was opening chef at Stephen Starr’s Buddakan nearly two decades ago, has become a magnet to well-heeled but generally private local investors.
