Now in the construction-planning phase, we will break ground in early 2020 with a projected move-in date of Spring 2021.
Welcome to our eclectic, diverse community made up of folks of all ages from all over the country. What we have in common is a desire to be part of Durham’s vibrant urban scene and to lead a simpler lifestyle based on mutual support, shared resources, and a sustainable community with a small carbon footprint.
You are going to like it here … Durham (pop 267,000) is dense, neighborly, and it’s easy to get around– more like a town but with all the amenities of the larger metropolitan Triangle, including Chapel Hill and Raleigh; and Durham’s foodie culture got it named Southern Living’s Tastiest Town in the South southernliving.com/travel/tastiest-town-durham-north-carolina. Our site is in walking distance of groceries, cafes, coffee shops (Cocoa Cinnamon is on our block!), local ice cream, an independent bookstore, and Duke University; and we’re in quick, easy driving distance of museums, galleries, concert and theater venues, I-85, NC 147, and I-40. RDU international airport is half an hour away.
Our Old West Durham neighborhood oldwestdurham.org/history/ lies in a lush environment of towering oak trees, neighborhood parks, walking/biking trails and close by Duke Gardens. In a few minutes’ drive, you are in Duke Forest, two state Parks along the Eno River, or the 22-mile American Tobacco Trail. The Blue Ridge mountains and NC’s beautiful barrier-island beaches are both three-hour drives. No wonder Durham is among the 10 most desirable places to live in the country!
Our soon-to-be home is a five-story condo building designed by Architect Ellen Weinstein www.wfarchitecture.com , and our group’s Project Manager and Owner’s Rep is Christine Westfall. This veteran team developed our sister cohousing condo building, Durham Central Park Cohousing Community www.durhamcoho.com , recently featured in Durham’s Triangle Institute of Architects Tour.
Our building will be located at 608 & 610 Trent Drive and will include 23 condos and spacious indoor and outdoor commons areas.
Commons areas include:
• A kitchen, dining/lounge and screened porch
• Shared laundry room
• 2 activity areas for playing music, yoga, meditation, exercise, small events
• Outdoor spaces – vegetable, herb, flower/pollinator gardens & trees, screened porch and possible terrace
The following available units come with a parking space and a balcony. 9 foot ceilings, large windows and a southern exposure create a light-filled, spacious environment. Floor plans and unit plans can be viewed on the BCC website: bullcitycommons.com/floor-plans-unit-layouts
** Units 206, 306, 404, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1295 sf
