Westover’s Green Initiative in Full Swing
Not only is Westover’s favorite color green, but we like to “Go Green” when we have the opportunity to! Check out how we are working with a window company that has a strong mission to benefit the environment.
901 Market Tower is incorporating INTUS Windows throughout the building! Westover Companies is always looking for ways to “go green” and this is a great way! The mission as stated on their website reads, “One Window, One Tree. For every window or door purchased, we plant a tree to further offset a structure’s carbon footprint.” Not only are INTUS windows built to be energy efficient, but they reduce noise and increase thermal performance.

Taking You Back in Time (History)
Let’s start all the way back to the early 1890s. Yes that’s right, we said 1890s… a long long time ago! Originally built as a six-story masonry building, it was considered Wilmington’s first sky scraper even before a few more floors were added in the early 1900s. This property was originally known as “The Equitable Building”, “The Bank of Delaware”, and “Market Tower”.
In the 1950s, many renovations took place and a total of 14 stories were built which is the same amount we have today. Below, you can see the newspaper clipping from “The News Journal” from May 3rd, 1958.

Where We are Now (Progress/Construction)
Westover is working from the top down, and we are coming along quickly! Each floor plan has been designed to give a variety of options to our future residents. We have been photographing the progress as we go. The renovation to the original portion of the building will bring back some of it’s classic elements. The main exterior of the building will have a natural color to bring back a limestone inspired look, which will blend well with the other surrounding upscale buildings in the area.
