The North Claymont area has a mix of industrial, commercial, and residential sites and is located north and east of the Claymont Hometown Overlay District. Much of the area is currently underutilized and presents a significant opportunity for economic development given its access to a variety of transportation options.
Notable sites for potential redevelopment include the Tri-State Mall and the former Claymont Steel site. Tri-State Mall is an older shopping center that opened in 1970 and currently comprises 513,896 square feet. Activity and occupancy at the mall have declined in recent years, creating a great potential for redevelopment. The former Claymont Steel closed in 2013 and plans are being finalized for purchase of the property by a group of private companies interested in redevelopment.
New Castle County is partnering with WILMAPCO to co-manage the study. Other participants include Claymont Renaissance Development Corporation, the Delaware Office of State Planning Coordination, DelDOT, Delaware Transit Corporation, DNREC and the Delaware Economic Development Office.
