Old Building, New Life: The Story of Avenue North

Render of new campus

While companies typically look at Downtown areas for office space, sometimes the best option is in the ‘burbs. Just outside of the Wilmington city limits, off of 202, lies the former site of several Astra Zeneca office buildings. What was once home to lab space and corporate headquarters, will now be transformed into a mixed-use community, called Avenue North, with 1.85 million square feet of office, residential, retail, restaurant, and recreation space.  Two companies — specialty chemical producer Solenis Inc. and health care giant Christiana Care — each have agreed to lease office space, becoming the first two tenants to commit to the new campus in North Wilmington. This move is expected to bring hundreds of health and chemical professionals to the area.

 

The Details

About 200 Solenis employees will move to the new headquarters in early 2020, the company said. Part of their new building will become home to 300 new apartments, retail space, and a five-story hotel.

For Christiana, they look forward to having more rooms available for patients at their main campus after moving administrative and support staff into the building at Avenue North.

Another company, Delaware BioScience Association, announced last year that it would move its headquarters to the Fairfax campus as well.
