2019 has a lot in store for Wilmington, specifically with our skyline changing for the better. See some of how Wilmington’s skyline will change below:

Blue Coats and 76er’s Field House

If you can’t tell, we’re pretty excited about this. We are getting a sporting complex that will draw in crowds for major games, along with a place for local Wilmington kids to go for camps and other events. You’ll see the finished building east of U.S. 13 (South Market Street) where South Walnut Street branches off on the north side of Garasches Lane west of the city’s Southbridge neighborhood.

Apartments

At 210 N. Market St., between the 218 Grille restaurant and the building that houses Al’s Sporting Goods, you’ll notice a few buildings missing. That’s to make way for Buccini/Pollin’s new apartments and a parking garage. You’ll also see some new townhomes being built along the Brandywine Creek, which you can read more about here.

Stay for the night or three

Justison Street? Do you mean hotel row? With four hotels recently opening or being built on that road it is not a surprise that nickname has stuck. Even with the hotel boom, restaurants are moving in thanks to ONYX Group and Big Fish Restaurant Group.

Getting Around Town

Taking the bus? By the end of this year, you’ll get to make your connections at the newly built transit center. In the new building, you’ll have access to a covered, seating area, real-time bus displays, ticket sales, WiFi, USB charging stations, restrooms, vending machines and bike racks with a bike repair station.

Wilmington will also be getting a bridge over the Christiana River sometime this year.

7th Street Peninsula Soundstage

Musical acts, Broadway stars, and film crews will have a new reason to come to Wilmington. The 25,000-square-foot, 95 foot tall soundstage will be built this year. The building will also include video and lighting studios and office space.

Summarised from the article “How Wilmington’s skyline is changing in 2019 and beyond; new development and apartments” on Delaware Online.
