I wanted to start a tread where we can discuss previously planned developments in Durham that were never built or are stuck in a perpetual limbo. If you know of others or where to get more info share below, and I will try to keep the list updated.
1. Renaissance at Durham Centre
a: A planned twin to Durham Centre office tower. Plans were to have condos and possibly a luxury hotel.
Somewhere I saw mention that the idea of a Four Seasons was tossed around.
2. Ashton Place
a: Twin apartment towers located where the current bus station is.
b: They would have been 27 stories and 310 ft high. Apparently there was no high restrictions in that part of
downtown back then?
3. Erwin Square
a. Looking for more sources on this versus another forum. But apparently there were supposed to be other towers built, 15 and 30 stories.
4. University Tower
a. Same as with Erwin, looking for more info. Though someone mention in a post on Open Durham there
were meant to be 3 towers. But apparently the plan was to be a "high rise district"
5. New Suntrust tower?
