The community features studios, one and two bedroom apartments with open floor plans, quartz counter-tops and high end finishes throughout. Located just steps away from Market Street, entertainment, restaurants and shopping are right outside your doorstep by taking a short walk down the  brand new beautifully lit Burton Place. 

Burton Place Wilmington DE

 Burton Place Passageway commemorates an important ruling in civil rights history. The new road between the two Mid-town Park apartment buildings, which gives access to the parking garage, is named after former Wilmington City Councilman William H. "Dutch" Burton.  Mr. Burton was denied service at the onsite Eagle Coffee Shop in 1958 and the case was taken all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of Burton. An exclusive dedication event celebrating the historical significance of Burton Place will be held in the near future, complete with the permanent installation of a commemorative plaque. 

If you are interested in calling Mid-town home, act quickly, these apartments were 1/3 of the way leased prior to their grand opening! Visit http://residencesatmidtownpark.com for leasing information. 

Transforming Wilmington One Façade at a Time-218 Grille, Residence Inn and 9th Mile Galleria Receive Grants

218 Grille

Within the Wilmington Downtown Business Improvement District, a block-by-block inventory done by Downtown Visions in 2009 showed that 78% of the buildings would benefit from improved façade treatments. Today, over 66 buildings have been improved, most recently 218 Grille, Residence Inn and the 9th Mile Galleria. 

 

 

 

A walk down Market Street proves that the program has been incredibly successful in the restoration of the once hidden and neglected historic character. Market Street now provides visitors and residents with a charming and welcoming atmosphere thanks to restored buildings and storefronts through Downtown Visions'  Façade Improvement Program and Main Street Program. Downtown Visions staff oversee each individual exterior improvement project from beginning to end as well as provide grants on a matching basis up to $25,000 per façade improvement. For more information on the program and how it could benefit your business or entrepreneurial venture, click here.
