Another High-Rise Planned for Wilmington Riverfront
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – Developers are looking at nearly ten acres along the Cape Fear River in Wilmington to build a hotel and a high-rise residential tower.
John Evans, the developer behind the City View project planned for Eagle's Island, also has plans for the other side of the Cape Fear River. This project is a hotel condo for just south of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge and a high-rise condo for land just north of the bridge.
Building plans filed with the city show both buildings stretching 220 feet tall, a little taller than the height of PPD's new headquarters located on the northern end of downtown Wilmington.
The ten acres of land patch of land surrounding the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is currently zoned industrial, commercial or vacant.
Plans for what's being called The Gateway Project show a parking deck and transportation station for trolleys, cabs and WAVE buses.
