Butner Gateway


Recommended Posts

We are searching towns surrounding Research Triangle Park for infill housing and mixed use-project opportunities and have been working with Butner lately.  Came across this project created for Butner.  Once the East End Connector opens, Butner will be about 15 minute drive to Research Triangle Park, downtown Durham, and Raleigh Durham Airport.  Downtown Raleigh will be 15 minutes closer than it is now (30 minutes future).  The project is for 450 acres with 2 freeway exits.  Butner already has a grid of streets with a stable supply of residential, public buildings and parks, and, commercial integrated into the grid. 


Plan Notes

Future development will impact the town's fiscal health, mobility, and quality of life
Future growth and development locally and in the greater region will be impacted by a myriad of factors
Durham "East End Connector" will create non-stop access from Butner to Research Triangle Park, Raleigh-Durham Airport, Raleigh and points South and East.
The Falls Lake watershed means we'll have to think carefully about where development occurs and about how site's are designed and developed.
Transportation needs and available funding require a renewed appreciation of the interaction between transportation and development
Consumer preferences about where people want to live, work, shop and play are changing.  

Other Factors Impacting Development Today and in the Future:
  • Population growth and demographics including accommodations for an aging population
  • Job access and mobility
