It seems as though many in the national media have started to discover the great things happening in Downtown Wilmington lately.
This week, the New York Times published an article about the growth and development happening in our city, here's a couple of excerpts:
“People want to live, work and play in the same community, and developers are responding to that,” said Michael J. Hare, a senior vice president at the Buccini/Pollin Group, developer of the downtown projects. “We believe the time is right for urban living.”
When they are not dining or browsing books, occupants of the new apartments will be able to walk to entertainment at Wilmington’s Grand Opera House, an established music venue at the north end of Market Street, or a few blocks south to World Cafe Live, a renovated Colonial-era hotel that reopened as a rock-concert space in 2011.
I hope everyone gets a chance to see the exciting things happening downtown for themselves - there's a lot to see and do in Downtown Wilmington.
