Built in the 1930s and historically certifiable, the 13-story Nemours Building, located in downtown Wilmington was renovated to accommodate residential, retail and office space. Renovations of core and shell elements of the existing 725,000-SF building included interior demolition, elevator modernization, new core bathrooms and elevator lobbies, main lobby renovations and mechanical modifications. The exterior façade was also restored to provide a refreshed streetscape and include energy efficient windows into the design. Gilbane skillfully coordinated the multiple sector projects to ensure a seamless delivery.

The residential floors consist of 85 apartments that include a mix of studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. The common floors add a community space to the development and consist of three different conference rooms, a great room with a TV, pool table, fitness center and laundry facilities. The building also boasts multiple unique amenities for residents and tenants to enjoy, including printing services, a bank, a specialty restaurant, hair salon, a credit union, Starbucks and a theatre.
