Historic Dupont Building to get “food hall” for innovative chefs
A 12,000 square-foot “food hall” is coming to downtown Wilmington. The $3.5 million facility will host eight innovative kitchens and a central bar at 10th and Orange streets.
The food hall, called Delaware Collective or DE.CO, will anchor the new ground floor of thehistoric Dupont Building, which began redevelopment last year.Buccini/Pollin Group and Seawall Development are partnering on the project.
“With DE.CO, we’re debuting a new community in the heart of Wilmington: a collective that will offer guests unparalleled selection and diversity, all in one comfortable, central location.,” says Buccini/Pollin’s Chris Buccini. “Wilmington is a thriving, energetic metropolis and this community-driven food hall will be the heartbeat of a young, vibrant city.”
The goal is to provide a space for energetic chefs to develop their ideas for new and exciting restaurants. Interested chefs can reach out to Peter DiPrinzio of Seawall at [email protected]
DE.CO is slated to open in late 2018.
