Wilmington’s Christ Our King church, school up for sale


Bellevue Realty has been selected to represent the owners of two large properties in Wilmington.


The Christ Our King Church and Rectory, located between W. 28th and W. 29th Streets, north Madison and north Monroe streets, and the Delaware Preparatory Academy property, formerly Christ Our King School, located across W. 28th Street from the church, are for sale for a combined price of $1.4 million.

Comprising almost two full city blocks and more than three acres, these properties represent an opportunity for reuse as a religious facility and school, or redevelopment into a major project. The properties are owned separately, but can be combined.

The Christ Our King Church contains a 500 seat sanctuary plus a 50-seat chapel and a 400- seat dining hall in the lower level. The rectory has four offices, six bedrooms, two kitchens and a library. Combined, the church and rectory have over 36,000 square feet of space on 1.6 acres.

The Delaware Preparatory Academy has two floors containing 12 classrooms, plus a full size gymnasium/cafeteria in the lower level. Classroom space totals over 17,000 square feet, with open space for parking and a playground on 1.5 acres. The building is fully sprinklered and has an elevator.
