Boxwood Community Update – July 2019 Edition

July 17, 2019

As we move closer toward the end of the demolition process at the former GM plant on Boxwood Road, we are happy to announce that all asbestos removal work at the property has now been completed. 

Since April, we have been commissioning third-party testing of both the procedures at the property, as well as daily air quality samples around the fence line. No operational violations have been found since those checks began, and air quality around the perimeter has consistently measured well below the applicable Federal and State standard. Many of those samples have been posted on Facebook, but a full accounting of the test results has been posted on

We want to extend our sincere gratitude to the neighbors around the plant and the wider Wilmington community for their support throughout this process. With demolition expected to conclude this fall, we are now one step closer to our goal of creating a new business and distribution campus that can create jobs and restore this property’s status as an economic engine for New Castle County.
