New Development Plans Revealed for Claymont, DE

First State Corporate Center offices on the high profile northern gateway;

First State Employment Center with research, office, manufacturing, and warehouse uses in the center area;

First State Transit Center served by rail, bus, auto, bike, and pedestrians to serve existing and stimulate new development;
