Ernest F. Delle Donne provided an update on the Avenue North projects. He was introduced by his son Gene Delle Donne. He recognized Arthur A. Bernardon and the rest of the team.
“Live-work-play” is coming to New Castle County. The Avenue North development on the AstraZeneca campus north of Wilmington is based on the idea that a new generation of office workers want to live close to restaurants and retail. They want to walk or bike to work rather than spend hours commuting by car.
Avenue North is expected to become the biggest development of its kind in the county. Led by Delaware developer Delle Donne & Associates, the project will create some 1.85 million square feet of office, residential, retail, restaurant and recreation space on the 80-acre campus at the intersection of U.S. 202 and Powder Mill Road in Fairfax.
The $350 million development, first announced last summer, will add about 600,000 square feet of office space to the existing AstraZeneca buildings that currently cover some 370,000 square feet. Some of the office space will be demolished and rebuilt on another part of the site.
The project will also create 335 apartments with amenities, including a fitness center, a 175,000-square-foot hotel and conference center and 200,000 square feet of retail space and more for restaurants.
Once again, a number of new members attended the luncheon thanks to the hard work of the Membership Committee, led by Jim Manna.
