Last week, Harvey Hanna & Associates had the pleasure of convening with residents, officials, and other members of the Wilmington-area community to discuss our current and future plans for the former General Motors plant on Boxwood Road.
Along with representatives of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, our engineering firm Apex Engineering, and a number of area elected officials, we heard plenty of positive feedback from residents excited about our plans to create a modern business and distribution campus at the plant property. We also heard several quality-of-life concerns about the changes that would accompany its transformation.
As a local firm with deep ties to New Castle County, we remain committed to maintaining an open dialogue with residents throughout this process, and will schedule future meetings every 4 to 6 months to ensure the highest degree of transparency and public input. While a new business campus will not generate the same level of activity than the GM plant at its peak, it will have far-reaching implications across Wilmington and the rest of the region. By continuing to work together, we can help create thousands of new jobs, and a better, more prosperous future for our community.

Harvey Hanna is NOW LEASING its brand new 100,000 SF building at Delaware River Industrial Park that is conveniently located in New Castle, Delaware. The fully improved 45 acre park offers quick access to the entire northeast corridor –Delaware Memorial Bridge, I-95, I-295 and I-495.
The Delaware River Industrial Park is 34 miles from Philadelphia and minutes from the Port of Wilmington, which is the top banana port in the United States. It’s also the nation’s biggest fruit and juice concentrate importer with the largest dock-side refrigeration business.
It is located within a ‘targeted zone’ offering comparably low property taxes and other possible credits and incentive. The brand new park offers modern construction with ample load and trailer storage. Delaware is the rated #1 in ‘business friendliness’ according to CNBC’s 2014
It features 6.45 acres of 100,000 square feet of space zoned “HI”, allowing for a wide array of uses including warehouse, manufacturing, R&D or laboratory. The building has a 32 foot clear ceiling height, ESFR sprinkler system and 4 loading docks.
The park is completely improved with heavy-duty roadways and all utilities including, electric, gas, water and storm water retention. Special improvements at the park include a fire control system with a 312,000 gallon on-site water tank and high flow fire pump.
Delaware is centrally located on the northeast corridor with easy highway access. This, along with Delaware’s lower property taxes and skilled labor force, makes it attractive to the national and regional companies.
“The logistics industry can be a very, very strong source of growth for Delaware because of our workforce. Those people who lost their jobs at Chrysler and GM when those plants closed and the people who were downsized in the Dupont Corp., a lot of those folks are still here. They didn’t go away. If we’re wise about handling it, logistics can really provide a source of employment for those people,” Hanna said.
Harvey Hanna already owns 2.58 million square feet of warehouse, distribution and logistics space in the Delaware, ranging from 5,400 square feet to the 430,000-square-foot former Five Below distribution center in their Twin Spans Business Park in New Castle.
