Wilmington Renaissance Corporation and Interfaith Community Housing of Delaware celebrated the launch of the Willing Street Artist Village on Tuesday at the corner of 6th and Willing Streets in Wilmington.

Located in the historic neighborhood of Quaker Hill, Willing Street Artist Village will begin with six buildings that will be redeveloped into 10 housing units – seven condos and three single-family homes. The homes and apartments will vary from 850 to 1400 square feet, and all will have separate studio spaces for artists. The goal is to extend the momentum of the LOMA district, and focus on creators – artists, writers, musicians, tech innovators, makers and manufacturers

Gov. Jack Markell spoke at the Tuesday afternoon kick-off event.
