Camden Courier-Post – February 1, 1933
First Unit of Building About Ready for Occupancy; Meeting on Monday
The first unit of the $1,000,000 structure is 95 percent completed, Samuel P. Orlando, secretary, said last night. Members will inspect the building before the meeting and act is on a proposal by the board of governors to open the unit. Details of the plan will not be disclosed until the meeting.
The unit, built at a cost of $120,000, lacks only furnishing and minor interior decor to be ready for occupancy. Work on the other seven sections of the clubhouse will be completed later.
Construction of the project was started last January. The building is three stories and contains all modern club facilities. In the basement will be a grill, dormitories for employees and offices. The gymnasium, cloakroom, steam room, reception room, and solarium are on the first floor. The second floor is given over to reception and reading rooms, billiard parlor and squash courts. Main and private dining rooms, roof garden, barber shop and other rooms are on the third floor.
Plans for the building were drawn so that work on the other units can be started at any time.
