CITY CENTER

We wanted to enrich downtown Durham, so we started at the center. City Center will be its own thriving neighborhood, with shops, living spaces and businesses in the heart of downtown. A space for this city to dream, invent and create a gorgeous addition to the coterie of existing buildings, City Center will be a sky-reaching symbol of the vitality of this unique city.
