A dozen new townhomes are coming to Wilmington’s east side, to be made available to first-time home buyers.
Bennett Point is part of Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County’s ongoing partnership with Wilmington and local investors – with state and federal support – to be a part of the community’s revitalization. The homes will go up at what’s currently vacant property in the 900-block of Bennett Street, and a couple of existing homes will be replaced.
According to Mayor Mike Purzycki, the east side has been a priority during his administration. $20-million has been allocated for the community to support new home construction as well as renovation.
“This is the beginning of what I hope will be a very conspicuous transformation of the east side,” Mayor Mike Purzycki said during Tuesday’s groundbreaking event.
Delaware State Housing Authority Director Eugene Young also made note of the state backing this and many other initiatives with a major increase in the budget for housing programs.
