Canal District


Snugly placed between the parade ground and the historic Branch Canal, this district is made up of 80 townhomes, carriage homes, and single-family homes. Carriage homes look across the canal to the Delaware City Marina and the town promenade. A walking path on the Fort DuPont side will trace the route of the fort’s original Canal Street.

Townhomes next to the fort’s restored chapel face the expansive parade ground across tree-lined Old Elm Avenue (formerly New Castle Avenue). In the center of the Branch Canal neighborhood will be detached single-family homes surrounding green space in the form of two pocket parks.
