Plans to overhaul the primely-located AstraZeneca property in North Wilmington will be unveiled at a public meeting on July 30th.
The Delle Donne organization has said it intends to demolish a portion of the existing pharmaceutical company facility near the intersections of routes 202 and 141 and replace them with a mix of retail, residential and corporate space. AstraZeneca will continue to occupy almost 400,000 square feet of space and will continue to be an anchor on the site.
Redevelopment of the site will include “Avenue North,” a pedestrian-oriented, amenity-rich upscale mixed-use community. Delle Donne says Avenue North will revitalize the property and the entire Concord Pike corridor, including approximately 300 luxury apartments, as well as shops, restaurants, retail stores, and fitness and daycare centers. The redevelopment will also feature a full-service hotel and meeting facilities.
Avenue North will be a major gathering place for Brandywine Hundred residents, with numerous and various outdoor spaces, interesting and high-quality architectural design, and signature buildings.
Delle Donne anticipates beginning construction within the next nine months.
