A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children Expansion  

A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children Expansion
1600 Rockland Road
Application 2010-0566

This is to advise you that the New Castle County Department of Land Use, Planning Division, has received an exploratory land development plan for the development of the southeast corner of Rockland Road and Powder Mill Road (bound by Alapocas Drive to southwest) to construct a 475,000 square foot children’s hospital expansion.  This expansion is located inside of the property walls on the southern portion of the existing building and it will be constructed on two existing parking lots.

The proposal is to build a 5 story addition to the existing hospital.  We asked about the building height and were advised that they did not know the exact height that the finished building will be; however, they did add that the 5 story building will comply with the height restrictions detailed in NCC Code.  The expansion will be taller than the existing building.  We are not sure if you will be able to see the building from outside of the walls of the property.

The Department of Land Use is conducting a review of the exploratory plan to ensure compliance with the code. This is a good time to submit comments about the plan to the Department of Land Use. You can contact the Plan Reviewer; Antoni Sekowski at 302-395-5414 at the Department of Land Use.   Once this review is complete and the exploratory plan has been approved, the Land Use Department will provide written comments to the applicant on unresolved issues.   The project will move forward to the next phase, preliminary plan review

You can contact the Department of Land Use at 302-395-5400 to have your questions answered about the project and to make an appointment with their office to review the plan.  For additional information on this plan, you may contact my office directly at 302- 395-8362 and speak with my aide Lou Hinkle.

"I am grateful for Bob's decade-long support for the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail, which follows Philadelphia Pike and Market Street into Wilmington. His presence and influence at the birth of our Delaware organization to develop this trail and to have it designated as a National Historic Trail was a key factor in keeping our hopes for the trail alive and growing."
