Why Live In Downtown Wilmington?

Come stroll through the hundreds of shops, restaurants, salons, and pubs that make downtown a vibrant commercial center. Nearby arts and cultural facilities, such as Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Bellamy Mansion, the Cape Fear Museum and over a dozen other museums and private art galleries will provide you with great access to a range of entertainment options. As Downtown hosts dozens of concerts, events, and community festivals every year, nearby residents have a tremendous opportunity to live so close to all the action.

Quality of Life

Downtown offers you a unique variety of living spaces. Historic mansions, contemporary condos, single family houses, sleek townhomes, and modern apartments – we literally have it all. Live anywhere from upper floor homes along bustling commercial corridors to quiet tree-lined streets with wrap-around porches and manicured gardens.

Our residents love the walkability of Downtown. Offices, shops, restaurants, culture, and natural sites are literally just steps away from anywhere in Downtown. Walking is a great way to see and experience the architectural wonders, the mix of uses and urban fabric in Downtown, in addition to providing a sustainable lifestyle. Other benefits of a walkable city include more social interaction, physical fitness, diminished crime, and other social problems. Walkable cities are more livable communities – leading to a fulfilling and happier lifestyle for our residents.
