Riverfront Wilmington - Realizing the Vision

The General Assembly established the Riverfront Development Corporation of Delaware (RDC) to create economic vitality along Wilmington's Christina River.

Guided by The Vision for the Rivers, the report generated by the Governor's Task Force on the Future of the Brandywine & Christina Rivers, the RDC embarked on its mission of transforming an industrial wasteland into a thriving destination rich in history and filled with recreational, cultural, retail and culinary attractions.

Along with public funds that generated extensive private investment and tax revenues, site investigation and restoration initiatives resulted in environmental improvements on every acre of the redevelopment project. Infrastructure enhancements beautified and improved access to the area. And, while creating a tourism hub for northern Delaware, Riverfront Wilmington has evolved as an important employment center for the city.
