Wilmington-based developer, The Buccini/Pollin Group, Inc. (BPG), and BPGS Construction celebrated the Grand Opening of their sixth residential community in Wilmington, Delaware, on January 30th 2015. Alongside major supporters of the project including Mayor Williams, Jeff Flynn, Director of Economic Development, Dr. Hanifa G.N. Shabazz, 4th District Council Member; Dr. Hare, Senior Vice President and Rob Buccini Co-President reminisced on how far the Riverfront has come.


From a dreary, abandoned shipyard to a vibrant, thriving neighborhood, the riverfront has come a long way. Dr. Hare reminded everyone during the event, “Tonight is a very significant occasion for a lot of reasons, because it reminds us all of the vibrancy of this riverfront, the vitality of this great city, and what can be done when people work together.”
