I take the back roads around 751 and Farrington and hwy 55 as it's a good way to sneak both into Chapel Hill and around durham and I believe there are 6 - 7 developments/town homes going up around here. Kinda makes me wonder what sorta development will happen along 751.

In particular there is that big one next to the orthodox church and another big one down 55 a bit. I think it might of been then one blasting as there is a giant pile of rubble.

Right across from herndon park there is another one and the road into the neighborhood loops right around this womans ranch house.

It's kinda sad seeing all the trees getting knocked down but I guess I'll get used to what comes.


I wonder though is it Cary spilling into here, Durham development, or Chapel Hill.

I tell you what seeing how quick these things spring up make should make on really nervous about buying a home next to a pasture if you're anywhere between Chapel Hill and Raleigh close to 40.

When there's money to be made, someone (usually a big out of state developer) will be on the spot to add to the development.

All the stuff you see is Durham. As far as 751, there will be development as there was a years long legal fight to get it approved and the legislature eventually passed a bill requiring it to be approved.

I take 751 or Farrington to get between Chapel Hill and Apex/Cary at least twice a month and have noticed the same thing. It's mostly clustered around 751 as you get closer to southpoint. Farrington eventually turns into Mt. Carmel Church Road which turns into Culbreth Road in Chapel Hill once you cross 15-501; probably a lot of "Chapel Hill-South" development coming there in the near future.

I avoid 55 like the plague. Way too many lights now and traffic gets worse by the month; even with the 540 expansion. I fear 751 will be next once Chatham Park gets going.

I think it's more Southpoint spilling into the Durham/Chatham border. Then there is Cary spilling into the Wake/Chatham border.

it seems inevitable that the area bounded by 751, I-40, 55, and O'Kelly Church will get more developed and denser. You've got the interstate access 40 provides, Southpoint, RTP, easy access to downtown Durham, access to Chapel Hill/Carrboro, shopping at 540/55, etc. It's one of those things to me where I wonder why it wasn't developed more sooner. Much more convenient location than building in an area that requires a longer commute to RTP, for instance.

My GPS routes me down Farrington rd to my clients house when I-40 is backed up. It is absolutely beautiful out through there. It's an enjoyable,leisurely drive when I'm directed that way. Love the old farm houses and well just everything. I've told my husband that if I could afford a house out in the "country" I'd pick there in a heartbeat.

Agreed....Farrington is my preferred route between Chapel Hill/Carrboro and Apex. Really nice drive through the country and two bridges over Jordan Lake.
