QUOTE

//

" River Place is a public/private partnership between the City of Wilmington and our firm. DMA has been able to serve two masters on this exciting but very difficult constructive infill mixed use project. The site while exciting, as is the design, is one fraught with problems. Demolition of existing structure, environmental issues, very tight footprint constraints, height limitations and incredibly poor subsurface conditions is just a partial list. DMA has juggled all of these and delivered an architectural gem that is on budget and will be the eminent project yet done in Wilmington. "

DEVELOPMENT

The architectural massing is sculpted to create forms that appear as separate buildings to match the scale of downtown.
