Central Park Area Projects

I stumbled across this on another forum. Anyone familiar with this project? Not sure where exactly on Rigsbee this is, but maybe across the street from the skate park?

It’s discussed in more detail here. Located at the corner of Rigsbee and W Corporation across from Surf Club.

The Central Park area is going to be nuts the next few years. Known/announced projects:

—This project
—GeerHouse
—Townhouses at 120 Broadway
—The Vega
—The new condo project at the Stone Bros site
—Potential YMCA redevelopment

Ah, thanks. Couldn't quite place it without seeing the surrounding area in the renderings.

I think that this is going to be the decade for Durham. The 2010s were monumental, but by the end of this decade I think we will see Durham quickly pull away from Greensboro and join Charlotte and Raleigh as the clear cut top three cities in NC. Honestly, I think Durham has a chance to start shifting the center of gravity in the Triangle away from Raleigh and towards itself if the city is aggressive about projects such as bicycle boulevards, rails to trails, etc.

I moved to Durham in 1992, when the Bulls still played at the old ballpark, Liggett was still making cigarettes downtown (the smell of tobacco filled the air) and the American Tobacco complex was sitting abandoned. It is pretty amazing the changes that have happened and are about to happen since then.
