Designing with Density in Delaware – Delaware Example

Washington House
Newark, DE

Washington House 1WASHINGTON HOUSE CONDOMINIUMS. This recently constructed, multi-family, mixed use building is located in the heart of the City of Newark’s downtown on “Main Street” (which was the recipient of the National Trust Main Street Center’s annual Great American Main Street Award for 2011 via the Downtown Newark Partnership). As accurately noted on the projects’ website: “Built on the site of Newark's landmark live-music venue The Stone Balloon, the Washington House is a unique opportunity to enjoy all the advantages of an urban lifestyle in a location that still delivers small-town charm”. Though this is located with multi-modal opportunities, the focus of this development is its walkability as one can merely step outside the front door for a bountiful selection of specialty shops and restaurants. It is also very convenient to the University of Delaware campus and many park and recreation opportunities.
