Unlock the Block

Downtown Dover

Unlock the Block is an initiative that will serve as a catalyst to reduce vacancy and engage/support entrepreneurs in the Downtown Dover Business Improvement District, and specifically, first-floor commercial spaces on Loockerman Street and streets directly adjacent to Loockerman. This initiative will encourage economic revitalization, facilitate re-development of first-floor commercial properties, and contribute to a vibrant downtown commercial district by securing owners of retail and professional goods and service businesses that have the capacity to serve/draw local and regional customers alike.

We anticipate launching by mid-August 2019.

Whether you are an established business looking expand in or into downtown Dover and are seeking more details/application information, or if are interested in the "Unlock the Block" process as it unfolds, we would like to keep in touch with you!  Please complete the Expression of Interest at this time.
