Venu Gaddamidi, the owner of Veritas Wine & Craft Beer, recently wrote a piece that was featured on the site about Wilmington.
Here's just a couple of excerpts from Venu's writing:
Upscale housing, entertainment venues, restaurants and family-oriented businesses are going up all over town. There are new collaborative plans for Wilmington creative corridor development. And there is a creative, technology and entrepreneurship revival happening.
Look at the ongoing development of the innovation corridor of North Market Street.
There were more employees in the 19801 downtown zip code in 2012 (the most recent data available) than pre-recession in 2009.
Sixty-five percent of the Fortune 500 is incorporated in this state, mostly in Wilmington, and the skyline is full of employees of the companies that choose to also have offices here.
We have cultural arts with the Delaware Theater Company, DCCA, City Theater, Opera Co, The Grand, World Cafe Live at The Queen and more.
The county and city’s commercial rental vacancy rate is at its lowest level since 2005.
If you want to be part of the change that Wilmington needs, then let me give you some advice: join us.
Visit Wilmington. Buy a cup of coffee or concert ticket in Wilmington. Buy a home in Wilmington. Open a business in Wilmington ... Be a part of the change by understanding and experiencing the truth of what life is and can be like in the City of Wilmington.
