Durham Midtown

Recommended Posts

Didn't see a thread for this.   This could be another catalyst project for Durham and transformative for north Durham and even southern Granville.

Discussion about how Northgate redevelops...  Ideas, concepts, rumors, plans...

I hope that if/when Northgate redevelops it:

Improves pedestrian/bike connection to surrounding residential neighborhoods

Contains signature architecture and public spaces

Includes a vertically-integrated mixture of uses, including work, live, retail/commercial and entertainment

I'd love to see a town square like some of the examples in that ULI brochure. I also agree about the connections with surrounding areas. Ideally almost all the parking would be in decks and they'd add some kind of housing, either townhomes or apartments. I think the people in the surrounding communities are probably right to be concerned about gentrification, but that seems inevitable no matter what happens at Northgate.

      The old Ramada Inn turned failed Duke Condo project turned failed boutique hotel by Graduate Hotels, is in the process of being demolished.  It appears everyone has given up at this point on trying to save the bones of this building and it's going to be razed for a 342 unit apartment complex and parking deck.  The design is being handled by CLINE Design on behalf of Alliance Residential out of Charlotte.

      General site plan which definitely maximizes every inch of their site as opposed to the giant sprawling parking lot currently there:
