Temporary plan would let developers make income on downtown property.

WILMINGTON -- Before developers’ grand plans for the old WWAY News studio take shape, the property might spend some time as a parking lot.

The 1.6-acre property at 615 N. Front St. served as WWAY’s home from 1969 until May. In March, the property was purchased by the eponymous 615 N. Front Street LLC, a partnership that includes Realtor and Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo, brother Nick Saffo, father Doky Saffo and the LLC’s managing member, Robert Stockel.

The team applied in April to the state’s brownfields program, saying they hope to develop the site into a hotel, shops and apartments. Brownfield agreements protect buyers of environmentally contaminated properties from liability, making it easier to get business loans.
