A ceremonial groundbreaking today celebrates the revitalization of Wilmington’s Lincoln Towers.
The project will include mixed-use affordable housing, a new fire station, and a number of features that will make it one of the premier “green” buildings in the city. Lincoln Towers received a $10-million competitive “green” grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The building design will incorporate high-efficiency energy systems and materials. The facility at 1800 North DuPont Street will feature 88 units of affordable housing for seniors and a new Fire Department #5 station. The Wilmington Housing Authority, Mayor James Baker, members of city council and the Fire Departments as well as HUD and The Michaels Organization are taking part in the groundbreaking celebration and discussing details about the project today.
