The Riverfront Development Corporation of Delaware (RDC) has overseen the growth and restoration of Wilmington’s Christiana riverfront for the past 25 years.
Since April 1996, the RDC has transformed the Christiana riverfront from an abandoned shipbuilding community into one of the First State’s most vibrant and lively destinations. Through its works, the RDC has enhanced the riverfront’s environment, encouraged historic preservation, created economic vitality and increased public access. Not only has the RDC helped build up the riverfront, but it has brought education, arts, recreation, tourism and employment to the area.
The RDC is the leader in construction for the Michael S. Purzycki Riverwalk, Tubman-Farrett Riverfront Park, Hare Pavilion, the Chase Center on the Riverfront and the DuPont Environmental Education Center. It has helped recruit numerous businesses like AAA Mid-Atlantic, Barclays and Navient as well as assisted in the construction of residential units and attractions like the Delaware Children’s Museum, Riverwalk Mini Golf, Constitution Yards Beer Garden and the Horizon Riverfront Rink.
Now, as RDC looks towards the future, it has plans to expand on the Christiana’s eastern shore with a redevelopment project that will create a network of roads, an expansion of the Riverwalk, additional green spaces, attractions, businesses and residences.
