Re: Durham Development Watchlist - June 2019

Great update!

A. Always glad to see more dense housing and multi-use going in downtown. I wonder what will end up happening to that huge surface parking lot next to where Vega will be going. I used to park there pretty often when I worked downtown a few years ago (because it was free, instead of paying $8 a day to park in Durham Centre). I cant recall--I think it might be city-owned? I wonder if they're planning to put another parking deck there, or maybe sell it to a developer. Would be a great place for even more multi-use development though, rather than more parking. It's prime real estate!

D. I wonder what this dense development on 3/4 sides means for Bull City Ciderworks and Wine Feed. Seems like the land will be too valuable in a couple of years for it to remain 1-story/undeveloped. But those businesses both seem like great candidates for moving into the bottom few floors of a multi-use development, eh?

F. Also great to hear about the museum!

G. It will be really interesting to see this corridor continue to develop as both CH and Durham continue to grow. Wonder how much difference the Durham-Orange County light rail would have made in terms of how sprawling the development here continues to be.
