Expansion is in the works for a midtown Wilmington multifamily complex.

The developer, Wilmington-based Cameron Management, has submitted plans for Phase 2 of Barclay Place, an apartment community built around 1996 off Independence Boulevard.

Phase 2, planned on about 4.5 acres of undeveloped land adjacent to the first phase, is expected to include 96 units.

One- and two-bedroom apartments will be housed in two, three-story walk-up buildings and one four-story building with an elevator, said Hill Rogers, broker in charge of Cameron Management. The rest will be three-bedroom, two-story townhome units.

Barclay Place currently has 164 units on 26 acres.

Residents in Phase 2 are expected to encompass a variety of demographics, including single professionals, graduate students, young families and empty-nesters, Rogers said.

“We know demand exists in midtown Wilmington for quality apartment communities in great locations and Barclay Place checks both of those boxes,” he said.

Site plans for Phase 2 of Barclay Place have been submitted to the city of Wilmington for technical review.

“Like any developer, we have concern with the increase in construction prices, which could certainly cause us to pause the start date for construction,” Rogers said. “It will probably be another 90 days until we are fully permitted.”
