Is there a plan for parking for Pier 33, Northside Park and the new restaurants downtown?

Hunter Ingram

According to site plans submitted to the city of Wilmington, the proposed Pier 33 development would contain a parking deck with 745 spaces — 137 public spaces and 608 private spaces for residents. The restaurants in this area have on-street parking and some parking spaces.

The $20 million North Waterfront Park, which sits just north of Pier 33, would rely heavily on structured parking in surrounding development projects to accommodate people visiting the park, according to the master plan.

A key objective specified in the plan is to “minimize the use of park land for parking,” but also acknowledges the public concern parking will be adequate for the size of the project.

Staff’s proposed solution in the master plan is as follows: “No portion of the park will include surface parking other than on-street. Structured parking in adjacent development sites will be used to allow visitors to park vehicles and enjoy park amenities.”
