Durham’s Ninth (9th) Street District

Durham has been in development mode for a while, with notable successes like the Durham Performing Arts Center and the American Tobacco facility, an area of trendy restaurants, high tech businesses and entrepreneurs of all kinds There are plans for at least two towering projects, one of which is a hotel-museum in the old SunTrust building. It is hoped that this type of density will lead to a real “downtown” feel in that area.
