OFFICERS ROW DISTRICT
Officers Row, between the Canal District and Marina Village at Wingate, will echo the fort’s appearance during the 1930s and 40s, when the base was used by Army engineers. Eleven new single family homes will join the remaining three homes that were once occupied by the Fort's officers. Surrounded by landscaping and views of the Delaware River, Officers Row preserves its historic neighborhood character.
The three original houses remaining on Officers Row are scheduled to be restored in 2017. Two of the homes were originally built at Ft. Mott, New Jersey. They were barged across the river in 1932 to expand housing at the busy fort.
Officers Row has been subdivided into 15 residential lots where prospective homeowners can design and build their dream home. Building guidelines will insure that the newly constructed homes will fit in with the historic character of the neighborhood and restored homes.
