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.  Choose from a variety of floor plans ranging from 1,835 to 3,200+ square feet. 

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.

Plans include a marina, hotel, restaurants, retail stores, a conference center and office space all on the waterfront.

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.
