Thirteen Projects Worth $53.5M Coming To Wilmington, DE

We have compiled a new list of pending projects in Wilmington that will continue to raise the quality of life and maintain the pace of change the city has seen since our last list! We strongly encourage sharing this list with friends and family.



Amstel Barber Shop ~$250,000

According to Amstel Barber Shop’s website, they are coming to Wilmington, DE in 2019.



The Chicken Spot ~$350,000

A local business owner created a Facebook page and posted a tentative menu for a fried chicken shop in Center City, but then deleted most of the evidence after receiving plenty of feedback. Address posted is 204 W 10th St.

Torbert Street Social ~$600,000

Big Fish Grill is being playfully secretive about a new establishment in Center City Wilmington. A beer garden/”public house” type bar is our guess after their clues.





Chuck Lager Taven ~$500,000

Chuck Lager actually opened as we were building this list. TV Star and respected chef Fabio Viviani is among the owners.

Island Fin Poke ~$250,000

Island Fin Poke has hundeds of 4 and 5 star reviews at their Florida location. The company’s second location is Trolley Square! Currently under construction next to Trolley Tap House.





Taco Grande ~$600,000

According to Big Fish Grill’s website, they will be opening “Taco Grande” on the Riverfront in October 2019. This date has been pushed back several times but we are confident they will open something great at this lot eventually.

El Diablo Market Street ~$350,000

Signage is up at 837 N Market Street where El Diablo will finally serve Center City!





Crow Bar ~$350,000

The owners of La Fia and Merchant Bar are opening a new establishment in the closed Old Banks Bistro location in Trolley Square. Their other bar has tapas style food and eccentric cocktails but perhaps this is a bit more casual.

Pine Box Entertainment Venue ~$8,000,000

The most recent article we can find on this exciting destination says “Pine Box, the performance area with overlook lofts and balconies, will also have a separate dance studio, smaller rehearsal breakout spaces with kitchens and bathrooms and 5,000 square feet of office space. Overall, it measures 200 by 125 by 95 feet (LxWxH).” Cost estimate is from DelawareOnline.





Sicily Pizza ~$250,000

The building next to Jalepeno Grill on Lancaster Ave appears to be ready to open any day. It looks like pizza will be available by the slice too judging by what we see through the front windows. Address is 1819 Lancaster Ave, Wilmington DE. Image from Google Maps.

2000 Pennsylvania Ave ~$40,000,000

Tsionas Management owns many properties in Newark and we hope this project is the first of many in Wilmington. The video here is quite amazing. The building is a long ways into construction and looks 50% done by our guess.





Kid Shelleen’s ~$500,000

Kid Shelleen’s Charcoal House & Saloon from Trolley Square is opening a second location in the Branmar Shopping Center in the Brandywine Hundred neighborhood of North Wilmington.


30 Demolished & Rebuilt Rowhomes ~$1,500,000+

  • $500,000 – 10 vacant properties in the city’s East Side Neighborhood.
  • $450,000 – 9 vacant properties on the 600 block of W. 8th Street in West Center City.
