I'm moving shortly to Durham and wondering if anybody has any recommendations as to upscale apartments in Durham. Coming from a large city, I would prefer to be able to walk to bars, restaurants, etc if possible. Any help would be very greatly appreciated. So far, I've looked at the West Village apartments and the apartments at American Tobacco and both look good but just wondering what else is out there. Thank you in advance,

The apartments near Southpoint mall would be absolutely perfect for your situation.

^To be honest, you don't wanna be near Southpoint if you are coming from a big city. Southpoint is tourist/big box store central. It is not a city vibe at all, but true suburbia mixed with shopping. Stick to downtown Durham, a much better area, with some real energy and character, not cookie cutter and bland. There are great restaurants (not chains like all around southpoint) and a much truer sense of a community/city vibe.

Check out Station 9. Its in Erwin Square which has a few really good restaurants (Vita, Parizade, Baba Ghannouj), a pool courtyard, and a fitness center. Its a great walkable location near 9th Street with eclectic shops a restaurants, Whole Foods Market, a bank, convenience store, coffee shop, bars, etc... and also close enough to walk to Duke Univ & Med Center. If I was looking to rent an apartment in the Triangle, this is one of the only places I would look.

Station 9 has horrible reviews on apartmentratings.com. Apparently it's like one huge frat house with thin walls...

Hmm, that's too bad. I've never been in there, but have just observed it from the outside and thought that it offers one of the best locations for convenience and "urban" living in Durham, if not the entire Triangle.

norasmom - apartmentratings.com is a great resource. Thanks! Looks like West Village has pretty good reviews and is convenient to my new job. Any other downtown recommendations will be gladly welcomed.
