Construction to begin in one of Delaware’s First Downtown Development Districts
SALISBURY, MD – October 19, 2015 – Fisher Architecture LLC, a locally owned, experienced architectural firm providing functional design and construction solutions to clients, announced the groundbreaking for The Residences at River Place, LLC, on waterfront property on the Nanticoke River in downtown Seaford, Delaware.
Fisher joined Developers David and Faith Perlmutter, as well as Warren Diamond, Delaware Governor Jack Markell, Seaford City Officials and business and community members at the groundbreaking and ribbon cutting event held this month on the waterfront property at the foot of South North Street in downtown Seaford, Delaware. The $9 million new construction project includes two four story apartment buildings with 72 apartment units, a clubhouse, pool, gym, twelve boat docks and parking for 124 vehicles.
“We are excited to see how the project will take shape and start planning what’s next for Seaford’s downtown business district,” said Keith Fisher, Fisher Architecture LLC. “The Residences at River Place is just the beginning of a master plan that will transform Seaford into a destination with a thriving downtown filled with energy, people and activity.”
The Residence at River Place is one of thirteen awarded Downtown Development District grant funding from the state of Delaware. The $5.6 million grant funds will help downtown revitalization efforts in Seaford, Dover and Wilmington. Delaware Governor Jack Markell announced the state’s $5.6 million is anticipated to leverage more than $114 million in private investment throughout the state.
For developers David and Faith Perlmutter, the town of Seaford was not originally on the radar screen for doing business in until the brother and sister team saw available waterfront property.
“The view is amazing,” said Developer David Perlmutter, Managing Partner of the Residence at River Place. “This is a place where people want to live, work and play. We are excited about this property and the revitalization of downtown Seaford. The city has been extremely welcoming and has made the process seamless from the beginning when all of this was just a vision.”
