Delaware Business Times: As housing grows, REACH Riverside expands focus

Delaware Business Times covers RESTORE - our program to acquire and develop 40 acres of real estate in Riverside.

WILMINGTON – With the first hundred new housing units built in Wilmington’s Riverside community, REACH Riverside has set its eyes on more pieces of the holistic puzzle of revitalization.

The master-planned community that largely bounds Northeast Boulevard and the Brandywine Creek to the city limits is designed with the principles of “purpose-built communities,” a holistic approach of housing, education and health care meant to tackle areas of concentrated urban poverty.

Once complete, the entire Riverside redevelopment will include 700 high-quality, mixed-income rental and for-sale homes along with a new Kingswood Community Center and Early Learning Academy that will serve as the foundation of a cradle-to-college/career education pipeline for the community. The Warehouse, a teen-designed, co-working and service delivery space focused on serving the city’s teen population, as well as EastSide Charter School, will also serve the greater community.
