The Bainbridge Companies to Develop 220-Unit Apartment Community in Newark, Delaware

NEWARK, DE - National multifamily housing developer The Bainbridge Companies, in association with real estate private equity firm Pinecrest Partners, is expanding its footprint with development of Bainbridge Delaware, offering 220 apartments located within walking distance of the City of Newark’s vibrant Main Street corridor and the University of Delaware.

Based in Wellington, Florida with additional offices on the East Coast, Bainbridge has developed, acquired, and repositioned multifamily properties in Florida, North Carolina, New York, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. In 2012, the company delivered Campus Circle Tallahassee near Florida State University, and later won a Multi-Family Executive community of the year award.

Bainbridge’s latest development not only expands its geographical footprint into a new state, but also launches an innovative, highly-amenitized, technology-driven community designed to appeal to anyone who wants to live within walking distance of a major university.

“We believe that there is strong demand for full-service rental housing with pedestrian access to larger universities,” said Thomas J. Keady, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Bainbridge Companies. “This dynamic location offers myriad opportunities for employment, learning, culture, recreation, social interaction, and personal growth. To appeal to potential residents, we are incorporating a wide range of amenities that reflect how people live today and the increasing importance of technology in their lives.”

Located at 230 East Main Street, Bainbridge Delaware will be the only Class A full-service rental community within walking distance of the City of Newark’s vibrant Main Street retail and restaurant corridor and the nearby University of Delaware. Designed in an edgy, urban aesthetic, Bainbridge Delaware is scheduled to deliver beginning in early 2016.
