Ground broken for new townhomes

July 26, 2018 by  

Mike Purzycki, the mayor of Wilmington, recently joined Tim Jones, Tony Ruggio, and Don Robitzer, who are Montchanin Builders’ partners, to break ground for The Overlook at Rockford Falls, a new residential townhome community.

When the project is finished, it will comprise 32 luxury residences located on the site where Bancroft Mills once stood. The project is near Rockford Park and overlooks the Brandywine River.

Charles ‘Bud’ Freel, councilmember from the 8th District, was also at the ceremony, along with a number of people who either own homes in the new development, or who plan on buying there. Mayor Purzycki noted the area of Wilmington where the Overlook is located offers a great deal of natural beauty, as well as being rich in history. It is also handy to recreational and cultural destinations such as Alapocas Run State Park, and the Delaware Art Museum. He went on to welcome the Overlook’s new residents, and invited them to become involved in the life of the city.

Construction on the project started in January, 2018, and is slated to be finished by 2020. Two completed townhomes are currently occupied, and 20 others have people interested in purchasing them. Homes start at about $570,000, and Don Robitzer said he was pleased to be working with Wilmington to provide new homes for residents.
