The Wilmington Riverfront has had its ups and downs over the last decades, from the success of Frawley Stadium to the failed Riverfront outlets to the vibrant Constitutions Yards.
If you haven’t been in Wilmington (or on the planet) for more than 30 years, you might not even realize that up until relatively recently, the Christina River waterfront was not only industrial, it was also blighted – even called a “wasteland” in the 1970s.
(The whimsically-colored cranes next to the Emerging Enterprise Center are a brightened-up relic of the old days).
One of the architects behind the transformation of the Wilmington Riverfront is Jim Tevebaugh, founder of Tevebaugh Architecture, who was responsible for turning around dozens of historic Wilmington buildings.
On Wednesday, Jan. 23, Tevebaugh will give a photo presentation for the Wilmington History Society’s monthly event downstairs at The Chelsea Tavern from 6 to 8 p.m.
Projects featured will include the Kent Building (1885), now a Capital One office, the train station parting deck and the Baltimore & Ohio railroad station.-30-
