South Front District Logo

In 2007, Tribute Properties acquired Nesbitt Court and thus the transformation of the South Front District began. What was once a vital landmark in Wilmington’s housing and manufacturing sector has continued its evolution.

At the heart of the District is the respectful renovation of not only Nesbitt Court, but the Block Shirt Factory and Capps Industrial Supply as well as the erection of the S. 2nd Street mixed-use building. With 20+ years in single-family construction and development Tribute Companies has expanded their vision into more than 35,000 sqft feet of industrial mixed-use space, like nothing else in Wilmington or the surrounding area.

Workspace That Inspires

The District includes more than 25,000
sqft of innovation-stirring space.

An open floor-plan model encourages collaboration, while the expansive balconies provide a sense of serenity in the midst of the workday.

Fine Dining

Award-winning Cuisine

South Front District is Wilmington’s premiere epicurean destination. From morning coffee to late-night munchies, the district can always cure a culinary craving. Artisan coffee and confections from local pastry chef Lydia Clopton and authentic wood-fire pizza from Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria and Vivian Howard are just a few of the power players serving delectable delights.
