Q. In the new zoning proposal for the block of Castle between 16th and 17th streets, what might be done about the bar Juggling Gypsy? Will it be allowed to stay in the area?

A. Under the latest proposed regulations, the Juggling Gypsy would be allowed to stay in the area.

The city of Wilmington is finalizing a new type of zoning: urban mixed use. The zoning is designed to revitalize areas and jump-start development in the proposed area.

The Juggling Gypsy was permitted as a restaurant, according to city of Wilmington zoning records.

The city’s proposed urban mixed use zoning, which is still being reviewed by the city Planning Commission, does not prohibit restaurants, confirmed Christine Hughes, a city planner.

UPDATE: The City Council voted to approve the zoning type in March 2013. In June 2014, a developer was considering a retail and apartment building in the 600 block of Castle Street, which was zoned urban mixed use. And as of late July 2014, the Juggling Gypsy is still open.


Are there any ‘haunted houses’ in the Wilmington area?

What is the story behind “Hannah’s Corner” at 2nd Street and Castle Street?
