Durham's McPherson Hospital Redevelopment

Recommended Posts

Durham's Old Specialty Hospital, downtown and directly across from Duke East Campus, is being redeveloped into a condo and boutique hotel complex. The main old hospital building will be retained and renovated, but the remaining, newer buildings will be taken down for new construction on their sites and on the parking lots that surround them. There will also be a new condo building on a parking lot across the street.

Here's a schematic of the new building (you can see the old hospital building to the left of the building with the blue canopies):

Here's a plan of the site (the old hospital building is in yellow; Duke East Campus would be in the top left of this plan):

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing these renderings. We used to live in Trinity Park; this will make a very nice entrance to the neighborhood, a great addition to the East Campus environment, and an overall boost to Durham-- great link between East Campus and Brightleaf. Then with the Blue Devil Ventures renovation of Liggett, between Brightleaf and downtown "proper. Durham is connecting the dots in an amazing and exciting way! Go, Durham, Go! :thumbsup:

My mom took me there to get my eye exams and glasses a few times in the late '80's/very early '90's. I don't recall the building being anything special but I think I was too young to appreciate things like that. She stopped taking me there because she thought they were too expensive :-p

Wait, is this at that intersection where there's a Shell gas station and a Papa John's? Isn't that the NC Eye and Ear Hospital?

I don't remember if it's a shell, but there is a gas station and a Papa John's.

It's a Shell, yes. It's across Main Street and just up the road from Brightleaf, right beside East Campus, and at the entrance to the Trinity Park neighborhood.
