Two business-centric downtown organizations join together as an ally for the city
Two business-centric downtown organizations — the Wilmington Renaissance Corporation and the Wilmington Leaders Alliance — have consolidated into a new organization that will be an “ally for the city of Wilmington (at a level) that has never existed before.”
In an 11 a.m. press conference featuring a who’s who of Wilmington political and business leaders and economic development executives, the two organizations — one that’s been around for a quarter century and one that’s just three years old — are announcing they’ve become the Wilmington Alliance.
Observers say the WLA brings more senior board representation and a focus on workforce development, job creation, leadership development, and community safety, while 26-year-old Wilmington Renaissance brings infrastructure and staffing that will allow the new organization to hit the ground running and double down on “creative place making” and retail recruitment.
Wilmington Renaissance has been involved in the revitalization of the Market Street Corridor since its inception in 1993 as Wilmington 2000. It has also the driven development of the downtown LOMA apartments, the Delaware College of Art and Design, the Creative District, and NewMarketWilm.
