Wilmington’s new Riverfront East
Something’s happening across the river—building the next frontier of a thriving future.
The future of Riverfront development is growing along a bend in the Christina.
Riverfront East is the converging point of downtown Wilmington and the current Wilmington, Delaware, Riverfront—86 acres of mixed-use opportunity to build a vibrant, bustling and sustainable urban community. A place for businesses to thrive and lives to flourish. At the completion of Riverfront East, individuals and families will have the opportunity to live, work and play in a uniquely Wilmington community that fits a diversity of lifestyles.
Why Here, Why Now?
Downtown Wilmington to the north. Riverfront Wilmington development to the west. Two main thoroughfare streets. And acres upon acres of underutilized brownfield ready for development, free from concerns of gentrification. This site, at the inner bend of the Christina River, is perfectly situated to become a cultural cornerstone of the city and stimulate economic growth for generations to come.
