Trio of students hoping to invest in Wilmington’s future by combating blight

Sitting on the conjoined staircase that leads to the porches outside of two abandoned homes on E. 17th Street in Wilmington, Joel Amin Jr., Bryce Fender and Demetrius Thorn shared their big dream.

The 20-year-olds chose this area to highlight the growing problem facing the city as vacant properties bring wooden boards to blocks throughout Wilmington.

This specific block had five vacancies, a small fraction of the 1,700 or so houses in Wilmington that remain without residents.
