Overview / Comments

Located in the Central Business District of Historic Downtown Wilmington with frontage on two high pedestrian trafficked and moderate vehicle trafficked streets, Old-Wilmington City Market has been positioned as a retail node in the South Front Street corridor for over 130 years.

This Circa 1887, exquisitely preserved +/-14,700sf building is a unique investment opportunity in the rapidly growing section of Front St south of Market. Just steps to the Riverwalk and myriad boutique hotels, fine dining, shopping and nightlife, this location is prime for continuing its current use as a boutique shopping destination and/or exploring new business verticals such as the booming wedding and event industry.

Old-Wilmington City Market is designed as a mini downtown streetscape with shops flanking a central atrium. This property's position and popularity in the area has seen some of its tenants enjoy success for over 20 years in business, making the location a Downtown Wilmington institution and model for success in retail.

CBD zoning allows a variety of commercial and hospitality uses and is the only zoning that allows short term vacation rentals in the Historic District.

This property can also be purchased with 122 S Water St., a .17 acre riverfront building lot adjacent to the Riverwalk
