Baxter Construction chosen to renovate Hopewell Theater’s new restaurant


Hopewell Theater has selected Baxter Construction as the contractor to renovate its recently acquired restaurant property, the former Brother’s Moon restaurant at 7 W. Broad St., Hopewell, N.J.

“After winning with Baxter both the regional award for ‘Best Commercial Interior’ from NARI (National Association for the Remodeling Industry) and a ‘New Good Neighbor Award’ from NJBIA (New Jersey Business and Industry Association) for the Hopewell Theater renovation,” said Sara Scully, the theater’s executive director, “we knew they were the right choice to build and expand our arts center to include the restaurant.”

The “New Good Neighbor Award” showcases the best of the best who turn ideas into reality and invest in communities, create jobs, and improve lives.

“We are honored to be working with Hopewell Theater again to continue to revitalize Hopewell as an arts destination,” said Jim Baxter, owner Baxter construction. “... we are looking forward to bringing Hopewell Theater’s vision to reality.”

The first phase of the renovation will be to gut the building and stabilize the building infrastructure. The second phase will be renovation design with Hopewell Theater management, a design team, Baxter, and the to-be-determined restaurant group who will run the restaurant, followed by the renovation to realize those plans. Renovations are beginning this month.
