Former Army Reserve Center demolished

The former Adrian B. Rhodes Armed Forces Reserve Center, located at 2144 West Lake Shore Drive, was torn down recently to make room for transitional housing for the homeless. The demolition is part of an agreement between the City of Wilmington and Lakeside Partners of Wilmington, Inc. 

The facility was closed by the federal government in 2011 and turned over to the city following an approved agreement with Lakeside. The federal government requires military facilities such as the Rhodes Center that are no longer utilized to be redeveloped to help the homeless. As part of the agreement, the city demolished the building to make way for Lakeside Partners' future development. Two of the partners in the original agreement with the city have since dropped out, so a new proposal will have to be submitted before anything further can occur.
