Why you'd want to live in Downtown Durham

It’s an exciting time for Durham. With a major revitalization plan now becoming a reality, Historic Parrish Street is right in the heart of it. 2 of the largest historic renovation projects in North Carolina are located in downtown Durham, and all of this economic development reflects the thriving, robust economy of the new South. The Brightleaf District has charming brick buildings once punctuated Durham’s skyline and were used to store and age tobacco. Today, they have come to life with people lingering in the courtyard at cafes, businesses bustling in the renovated office space and unique retail stores drawing customers to this exclusive setting. Eclectic eateries and shops are just some of the reasons that people come to downtown Durham and Brightleaf Square. The Central Park District serves as the community backyard for downtown Durham. Renovated historic buildings, including the Brodie Duke Warehouse and Imperial Building, surround a green park area and the historic Durham Athletic Park. With the Durham Farmer’s Market, artist studios, biotech companies, performance theaters, exclusive lofts and the community’s main YMCA facility all located in the Central Park district, this area is carefully designed to blend work, housing and leisure. The Warehouse District Largely residential, this district offers downtown loft living in the center of the city. Creative companies share the expansive, old brick 2-story space with tasty restaurants. And West Village also features a wide range of upscale loft condominiums.
