Q&A: Favorite thing about Delaware? “I love the strong sense of community that exists in Delaware.”

Created by the state government to boost economic vitality along the Christina River in 1996, the Riverfront Development Corporation has been a catalyst for public and private investment to turn a series of warehouses into mixed-use land for residents and businesses. Under Megan McGlinchey’s leadership, the RDC has worked on site investigation and restoration initiatives that have enhanced and beautified the area into a tourism hub, starting first with Frawley Stadium. In the last five years, she has laid out a $100 million vision to expand the RDC’s efforts across the Christina River in a new project called Riverfront East. That project includes office space, retail space and 4,000 residential units.
