In the summer of 2010, members of the Tauheed Islamic Center broke ground on a new masjid, or mosque at 4029 Princess Place Drive.

The congregation is still working on the 3,500-square-foot structure, said Ronald Sparks, the project’s engineer. Sparks said the building’s exterior is complete and crews are working on the inside.

Meanwhile, a separate Muslim worship center is slated for Wilmington’s Carolina Heights neighborhood.

In August 2014, the city council approved a rezoning to accommodate Islamic Learning Center at a 1-acre parcel at 315 N. 17th St. and 314 N. 16th St.
