The Downtown Wilmington, NC Renaissance

The revitalization of downtown Wilmington, NC has been in the works for over 30 years with more than $30 million worth of renovations, businesses and attractions added or in progress for the historic district. More recent city upgrades have been targeted farther away from the central business district on the North end of the river front. A new marina is being developed as well as a waterfront park, luxury apartments and new restaurants and shops. These additions are meant to help drive tourism, traffic and business to the north end and increase attention to the entire length of the now award-winning, Riverwalk.

Renaissance

The additions to the North end of downtown Wilmington have inspired businesses in the central business district to make upgrades while maintaining their historic charm. One business in particular, a barber shop that has continually run since 1955, has initiated a pay-it-forward rejuvenation project with the help of the company building the new marina. The construction company was asked to do a “good will” project to update the barber shop, and in return, the barber shop would donate 50% of its profit increase from next year to another business’ updates. Not only does this project help downtown Wilmington maintain its history in the 21st century, but it also creates strong bonds amongst business owners throughout downtown. Wilmington is one of the ten largest cities in North Carolina, but it has a small town charm with the help of generous business owners and friendly residents.

Just ten minutes away from the cobble stone streets of historic downtown, you can find resort living at Compass Pointe, recently voted “Happiest Community” by Real Estate Scorecard.
