Construction has commenced on a residential apartment complex dubbed Humble Park in downtown Wilmington, Delaware. Buccini/Pollin Group is the developer of the $16 million development, which will bring housing and 250 construction jobs to Wilmington. Recently Buccini/Pollin Group(BPG) hosted a groundbreaking event to celebrate the project, with Mayor Purzycki in attendance.
Mayor Mike Purzycki praised BPG for bringing the Humble Park residential development to Wilmington. Purzycki pointed out that housing was just as important as businesses for attracting more residents to the City. Therefore he said Wilmington needed more housing projects like this, especially in its Downtown neighborhood.
The Humble Park residential development is taking place at 317 N., Market St. It’s a convenient location at the intersection of 4th and Market Streets, which provides easy access to the Wilmington Train Station. Additionally, future residents will also have access to the nearby Transit Center, local employment hubs, and neighborhood attractions.
Number of units at the Humble Park community
The Humble Park community will feature 61 apartment units spread across three buildings, rising from four to six stories. It will consist of one and two-bedroom apartments, including shared amenities such as fitness center, resident lounge, and co-working spaces. Additionally, all units will have quartz countertops, LVT flooring, stainless steel appliances, along with in-unit washer and dryer facilities. The center of the building will also have a lightwell, offering ample natural light for residents in interior units.
Digsau is responsible for designing the Humble Park community. The designer chose to incorporate historic characteristics of the neighborhood, while maintaining a contemporary look that’s attractive to modern renters. Furthermore, Dave Sanchez (Chez Creative), an artist, musician, and co-owner of Spaceboy Clothing, will design a mural for the property.
Buccini/Pollin Group and BPGS construction will handle all construction and development work on the Humble Park residential project. While ResideBPG, a residential affiliate of BPG, will be responsible for the leasing and property management. The developer expects the project to be completed by the summer of 2024.
