Downtown Delaware is the original walkable mixed-use community!
Hollywood paints an image in our minds of the quintessential American small town downtown with busy sidewalks with people shopping in local storefronts and restaurants. Downtown Delaware IS that perfect image of a vibrant downtown!
Our 109 first floor spaces are 97% occupied with the following mix of businesses:
We also are currently working with our building owners to renovate more second and third floors for offices and apartments. Downtown apartments have waiting lists of white collar young professionals and baby boomers who are looking to downsize. Both groups want the walkable amenities and exciting environment that currently exist in our downtown.
Offices are becoming occupied with technology, business resources and creative class companies that also want to walk to restaurants, microbreweries, coffee shops, etc. Plus, they find it easy to recruit high quality employees with all of the exciting living options that are being made available downtown.
MainStreet Delaware is the non-profit organization that oversees historic preservation and foot traffic generating events and promotions for Downtown Delaware.
