Today's News Journal has a great story about 231 luxury apartments coming to Downtown Wilmington.
Here's some excerpts:
Spread over two high-rise buildings, the Residences at Midtown Park will take over the former sites of Mid-Town Parking Garage, Ninth Street Books and other retail stores. The development will occupy most of the block bounded by Ninth, Orange, Eighth and Shipley streets
downtown supporters hope the creative district, a 25-block area bounded by Fourth, Ninth, Market and Washington streets will increase the city's tax base, foster a built-in audience for more than 50 cultural institutions in the wider area, reduce crime and create jobs.
I am thrilled that more people are going to have the opportunity to live in our Downtown and enjoy all we have to offer in arts and entertainment!
