Proposed Stoltz Development Will Destroy Bucolic Greenville - News Journal letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor May 7, 2010 News Journal

I am a 13-year resident of Wilmington and live in the Greenville area. The pastoral nature of this area, part of the Del. 52 historic National Scenic Byway, is being threatened by the proposed expansion of the Greenville Center and proposed redevelopment of the former DuPont Barley Mill Road property by Stoltz Realty, a real estate developer.

Stoltz Realty at Barley Mill Plaza plans to build a 2.8 million-square-foot shopping center with a hotel, multiplex movie theater, stores, offices and apartments up to 11 stories. The existing two-story office buildings, at 1 million square feet, fit well into the community. In contrast, the proposed shopping center would be three times the size of Christiana Mall.

Traffic would likely be a very substantial problem, as the business here would include retail. Turning Del. 141 into U.S. 202, traffic-wise, would destroy the character of this area.

In addition, Stoltz Realty has plans for Greenville Center on Del. 52, which currently has quaint shops. Stoltz Realty has proposed a 180-foot-high (approximately 12 stories) residential building for Greenville Crossing. This is not what historic and bucolic Greenville is about.

Members of the public should voice their opinions before this is a “done deal.”
