Another sign of progress in Wilmington, with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to mark the grand opening of a new, 200-unit apartment building in downtown Wilmington.
Offering studios, one and two-bedroom apartments with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and high-end finish details, the Residences at Mid-town Park is located just steps away from the Market Street corridor at 116 W. 9th Street. The apartment community has an attractive, furnished patio with a swimming pool, an outdoor fireplace and a Restoration Hardware-like feel. And units with balconies will enjoy stunning city and river views.
The apartments were designed and constructed by the Buccini/Polin Group, who is slowly making their way up Market Street and some of the surrounding areas of downtown Wilmington, as part of a revitalization effort to bring more businesses and residents into the city.
At last week’s grand opening, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki stressed that downtown living is the linchpin to the city’s ability to succeed. “Needless to say, we are thrilled when we see all of this residential construction being done down here. The thing you have to have is people living down here. If people don’t live here, it becomes a daytime place and at night, everybody picks up and leaves.”
The Mayor also referred to Rob and Chris Buccini as “believers who believe in the city and are committed to the city.” With their purchase of the Hotel DuPont last year, which now boasts a redesigned lobby and bar, the Buccini’s also will introduce a new first-floor food hall called DE.Co (short for Delaware Collective) in the DuPont Building along with other retail shops.
