The amount of apartment construction we have taking place in the urban core is stunning. Recall that at the turn of the century there was West Village, the units on LaSalle St./Morreene Rd. by Duke, and in-neighborhood complexes in Trinity Park and the West End.

It took ten years to get Station Nine, Golden Belt, American Tobacco, Erwin Terrace, and the Lofts at Lakeview in place. Trinity Commons followed, opening last year.

Now we have, simultaneously under construction or breaking ground:
  • The complex named here
  • A sister complex to it just to the east by the new Harris Teeter
  • A few hundred new upscale units on LaSalle
  • A new infill complex at the Durham Freeway/Swift Ave interchange
  • West Village expansion of about 200 units
  • 300 upscale units at W. Chapel Hill St./Gregson -- earth movers are on site working
  • Complex at Willard/Jackson (crews from the site planners were out this morning surveying)

Add to this the proposal for 26 stories of apartments, plus other projects like Starwood's Aloft Hotel going in next to the East Deck at ATC by the ballpark, and it's an astounding amount of growth and change in the center of Durham. Even by my optimistic standards.
