Wildwood’s landscape is poised for transformation following the momentous groundbreaking ceremony held earlier today at the corner of US 301/Main St. and Oxford St., marking the initiation of construction for the city’s new parking garage. The surface lot at that site officially closed its operations on January 2, 2024.
The ceremony, open to the public and attended by enthusiastic supporters, signified the commencement of a project set to introduce a multistory parking structure providing an estimated 125 vehicle spaces. This initiative aims to fulfill the pressing need for ample parking to bolster existing and future downtown businesses. While construction progresses, the anticipated opening is slated for Fall 2024, though this timeline remains subject to potential shifts due to factors such as supply chain dynamics, weather conditions, and unforeseen delays.
This groundbreaking represents the flagship project outlined in Wildwood’s downtown master plan, adopted in November 2021. It embodies the result of a robust public-private partnership between the City of Wildwood and G3 Development, forging ahead to meet the community’s evolving needs.
Beyond the parking garage, this collaboration extends to the development of approximately 8,000 square feet of versatile commercial space. This space, intended to house one or more dining and entertainment establishments, will come to fruition in a building owned, constructed, and operated by G3 Development. Set to commence construction in mid-2024, this commercial hub is expected to open its doors in early 2025, further enriching Wildwood’s downtown offerings.
