Be part of creating a new waterfront community that is less than 30 minutes south of Wilmington and the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Enjoy the small-town atmosphere of Delaware City with historic buildings that are over a century old and a concentration of stores and houses dating from the 1800’s when it was the busy eastern end of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal. Today it is a popular destination for birders, boaters, dining, recreation and history enthusiasts.
Just a few feet across the Branch Canal in Delaware City, is Fort DuPont, a planned mixed-use community with a mixture of new and renovated vintage buildings centered on a 17-acre parade ground. Parkland, including a large boat ramp, surrounds the former Army base and provides easy access to the Delaware River and canal, which is well known for its fishing and boating.
What emerges is a unique mixed-use community on the banks of the majestic Delaware River.
