We are on a journey to create a new town that offers a new way to live, inspires community and sets a new precedent for Delaware. We've engaged some of the best minds to help us in this effort, connected the industry's greatest thought leaders, and toured the nation to discover several remarkable new towns and neighborhoods that are establishing new ground in place-making. Come explore with us learn more about the people and places that have influenced us as we build the Town of Whitehall.
Why Walkable Places are Preferred
Guest Blogger | Robert Steuteville
Smart growth allows for creation of quality public space, proximity to culture and civic amenities, and the connection to nature that is accessible on foot.
St. Georges Technical High School Wins State Academic Achievement Award
Guest Blogger | The St. Georges Hawk
St. Georges Technical High School was one of 17 schools from across Delaware to win a 2013 Reward and Recognition School Award, known informally as the state’s Academic Achievement Awards.
What is a Great Place to Live, Work and Play? Why?
Guest Blogger | Courtney Michener
My entrepreneurial dreams were fostered and recognized by this town. My workday is filled with productive and meaningful contributions, from a prime location on Main Street. My grocery store trip and workout at the gym during lunch are embraced as small miracles in my busy life.
Trending Green in Senior Living
Guest Blogger | Steve Leone, AIA, LEED AP, BD+C
Not too long ago, a reference to the Golden Years was a reference to a past usefulness, to the beginning of an end. Today it’s an emphatic reference to a new beginning.
Healthy Arts Create Connections Between People
Guest Blogger | Mark Fields
The arts create an opportunity to come together for a shared emotional experience. Whether it’s a concert by the local glee club or the community theater group doing a play, a performance is a moment when we set aside whatever else is going on in our busy lives and experience the same thing…not as individuals but as a group.
Town of Whitehall Book Club: “New Media for Designers + Builders”
Co-Founder | Brian DiSabatino
Restore some order from the chaos of media.
Kentlands | Gaithersburg, Maryland
This is the grandmother of so many new communities. The idea of re-mixing residential, retail, recreation, etc., is refreshing!
The Waters | Pike Road, Alabama
This laid back community boasts some of the best tree lined streets. It could be a 4th of July postcard every day.
Rehoboth Beach | Delaware
An inspiring seashore community, Rehoboth allows you to drop your car off and never need it again.
New Town | St. Charles, Missouri
This vibrant community rises in the middle of a very rural area. We love the Irish Pub, corner store and volleyball.
Seaside | Walton County, Florida
There is so much to love about Seaside, but this image of the Post Office tells it all. The incorporation of civic buildings to create community is inspirational.
Norton Commons | Prospect, Kentucky
This town was created within the past ten years and the quaint commercial center is a big hit. In addition, local builders have shown their houses off and raise money for local charities. That is cool!
Trolley Square | Wilmington, Delaware
This is one of the best urban areas in Delaware. Within a five minute walk you can go to church, pick up a cup of coffee and a newspaper, meet for lunch at a pub, pick the kids up from school, fill a prescription and go for a jog. Now that is living!
