Following up on last week’s WilmingtonBiz Talk with developers of the proposed Battleship Point project across from downtown Wilmington, two groups weighed in about their thoughts on developing the waterfront property.
Kemp Burdette, of Cape Fear River Watch, and Travis Gilbert, of Historic Wilmington Foundation, talked about their views on the project and its possible implications, ranging from questions of environmental impacts to potential damage to the area’s cultural, historical and archeological legacy.
While planners and elected officials from both Leland and New Hanover County sort out who will decide on the property's zoning – an attempt to ask Leland to annex the land is on pause, developers said on last week’s WilmingtonBiz Talk – more discussions are expected about the future for the river’s west bank.
