WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - New Hanover County held a dedication ceremony on Nov. 21 for the new NHC Government Center.

The ceremony began at 11 a.m. in the first-floor lobby of the new facility, which is located at 230 Government Center Drive in Wilmington. The county expects employees to be able to move into the 130,000 square foot building in early 2023.

The NHC Board of Commissioners, County Manager, LS3P team members, Thomas Construction and Cape Fear FD Stonewater were scheduled to deliver remarks during the event. Around 100 people attended the ceremony.

“It’s an exciting day for the county employees, they’ve been working in an old mall for 25 years and they’re really taking a step into the future here with this new class A office building,” said Brian Eckel, the building’s architect and a partner with Cape Fear Commercial.
