Community Overview

The Canal District at Fort DuPont is a place to call home for people looking to connect with nature, history and a waterfront lifestyle. The community is designed to meet your needs with custom carriage-style townhomes and single-family detached homes.

In addition to new construction homes, Fort DuPont, a master-planned redevelopment is now being revitalized as a live, work, play lifestyle community that builds on its historical roots, designed around the water and great outdoors. A place where bicycling, boating, walking, hiking and birding is the norm and not the exception.  Enjoy a quiet, peaceful setting with nature at every turn.  Across the canal, you’ll find quaint shops and restaurants on Clinton Street.

Delaware is a sought-after destination known for low taxes and pristine beaches.  The Canal District by Rockwell Custom is central to downtown Wilmington, Christiana shopping and dining and the southern shores.

This gorgeous community offers waterside living, recreational amenities, and easy access to Newark, Dover, Middletown, Philadelphia and South Jersey.
