WilmingtonBiz Talk: New Hanover County Transformations

By Staff Reports, posted Jan 13, 2022
Transformational projects led by New Hanover County are expected to make progress this year, including Project Grace, The Healing Place and the redevelopment of the county government complex.

Project Grace refers to the redevelopment of a county-owned downtown block to include a new main branch of the county’s public library and a new Cape Fear Museum. The mixed-use development is a public-private partnership between the county and Wilmington-based Zimmer Development Co.

Construction for The Healing Place, a peer-led residential drug and alcohol recovery facility on Medical Center Drive, began in early 2021.

Another public-private partnership, the transformation of the county government complex to include new county facilities and private development, is also currently underway with GHK Cape Fear Development.

New Hanover County Manager Chris Coudriet and Sara Warmuth, the county’s chief facilities officer, joined WilmingtonBiz Talk to discuss the status of the planned structures and those under construction, as well as the reasons behind the county moving forward with these new developments.
