Lang Development Company stands as a beacon of progress in the Newark, DE area, tirelessly dedicated to enhancing the fabric of community life for residents, students, and businesses alike. With a steadfast commitment to innovation and quality, we are proud to showcase our latest development projects, a testament to our unwavering mission to create spaces that inspire, uplift, and enrich the lives of all who call this vibrant area home.

Creek View Complex

Nestled on Creek View Road, our exciting mixed-use development features three new structures, which are nearing the end of construction. They include a spacious restaurant, a community theater and a versatile professional office building.

The 4,800 square foot restaurant space, available for lease, features an outdoor dining patio with views of White Clay Creek. This restaurant will benefit from the influx of new residents, professionals, and theatergoers that the complex will bring.

Upon its completion, the brand new theater facility will be the new home to Chapel Street Players and will provide them with a beautiful venue just north of their current location while also allowing for their patrons to have access to free on-site parking.

The new professional building offers a 3-story, 31,000 SF office space meticulously designed to cater to the diverse needs of businesses. This modern facility promises versatility and functionality, providing a premier workspace for discerning professionals.  This facility is currently about 75% reserved.

In addition to the new buildings, 500 Creek View will be remodeled into a well-appointed residential building that will feature 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. This building will also feature impressive tenant amenities such as a fitness center, community rooms/coffee bar, a rooftop patio, outdoor deck, and a sports court.

532 Old Barksdale Road

Situated on a 1.3-acre property, construction has commenced on a five-story structure which will revitalize the area.

At the heart of the project is the construction of a contemporary building featuring parking facilities on the ground floor and 54 well-appointed 2-bedroom apartments spanning the upper levels.  The project will play a pivotal role in enhancing the area due to its appealing design and the introduction of some much-needed green space to an otherwise industrial landscape.

Lang’s commitment to environmental aesthetics include lush greenery through tree planting initiatives, flower beds, and expanses of grass.  Moreover, in compliance with city regulations, the project includes the installation of a fence to deter trespassing onto the nearby railroad tracks and a brownfield remediation agreement with environmental authorities.

As the project moves forward, it aligns with broader efforts to revitalize the community and pave the way for further enhancements in the surrounding vicinity.

25 North Chapel Street

Lang Development Group is proud to announce the unanimous approval of our redevelopment project at 25 North Chapel. This transformative project boasts the introduction of a four-story, 8,100 square foot building set to redefine the landscape of the area.

Offering a harmonious blend of functionality and modern design, the building’s first floor will house a convenient parking garage and inviting lobby, while the three upper levels will offer a total of 21 meticulously-crafted two-bedroom apartments. Notably, the project incorporates a 10-space parking waiver, optimizing space utilization without compromising on convenience.

A significant aspect of this redevelopment initiative involves the replacement of the Chapel Street Playhouse and an adjacent duplex, marking a strategic transition toward revitalizing the locale. This strategic move is part of a broader land swap arrangement, facilitating the relocation of the Chapel Street Players to a new venue on Creek View Road. The forthcoming venue promises enhanced amenities, including increased seating capacity, improved handicap accessibility, and ample parking facilities.

 

Twin Lakes Townhomes

Construction is underway for our latest addition to the already-established Village at Twin Lakes: twenty-four meticulously crafted 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom townhome-style garden apartments. 

Spanning 1350 square feet, each home will offer an open-concept spacious sanctuary. With three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, these homes offer ample space for the whole family.  Also included are the convenience of second-floor laundry as well an attached garage, providing secure parking and additional storage solutions.

Nestled within the idyllic community of the Village at Twin Lakes, residents will discover a haven of natural beauty with two serene ponds and a picturesque walking path, yet the location still provides easy access to major highways and shopping.

For this project, Lang has partnered with Karins & Associates (site engineer), Breckstone (architect), and Baker, Ingram and Associates (structural engineer)

30 South Chapel Street

We’re thrilled to share our plans for a dynamic seven-story apartment building set to transform the landscape of 30 South Chapel Street, the former Burger King site.  Our proposal for this landmark building reflects our commitment to revitalizing downtown Newark, bringing new energy and vitality to the area.

Situated on a prime 1.35-acre property, this project will offer 65 beautifully appointed two-bedroom apartments across six floors. The ground level will feature convenient parking, a welcoming lobby, and retail space, enriching the neighborhood with a mix of residential and commercial amenities.

With unanimous support from the planning commission and positive feedback from community leaders, including Commissioner Alan Silverman, our project has been praised for its appropriateness and potential to positively impact the area.

As we move forward with this exciting endeavor, Lang Development Group remains dedicated to responsible urban development, ensuring that our project aligns with the needs and vision of the community. We’re excited to be part of the ongoing transformation of downtown Newark and look forward to creating a vibrant and thriving space for residents and visitors alike.
