In Pictures: Wilmington Gardens is nearly finished

Construction of the  Wilmington Gardens development, on the 1200 East block of Wilmington Avenue, is in the final stages.  The Sugar House project includes two mixed-use buildings that are two and seven-stories respectively, 212 residential units, ground floor retail, administration and academic space for Westminster College and modern town-homes fronting Hidden Hollow park.

The residential units will be a mix of market rate apartments and student housing.  At the center of the development is a public plaza that connects Wilmington Avenue to Hidden Hollow and Sugar House park, via the Sugar House Draw.
