A public space so near and dear to native Wilmingtonians and newcomers alike, Rodney Square is the historic downtown center for Wilmington, DE and is due for a face lift. The Buccini/Pollin Group has been working closely with Delaware Transit Corp., Downtown Visions, Inc. and the City of Wilmington to create a comprehensive plan for the restoration of Rodney Square that includes new and relocated bus shelters, an information/news kiosk, increased lighting and security, landscaping, and more.
While BPG constantly aims to upgrade existing neighborhood amenities as well as bring in new ones to help foster a live, work and play environment for both their commercial tenants and ResideBPG residents, this is one effort that is truly a city-wide and community-involved effort. Rob Buccini, President of the BPG indicated, “Many elements of the Wilmington Community are committed to this restoration and the sustainability of the Rodney Square space. We hope to combine a strong private side with the state and city interests in forming a Friends of Rodney Square organization.”
