Durham Southside


Durham, North Carolina


Moore-Riley Architects, PA. Raleigh, NC



The City of Durham recently began a project to redevelop the neighborhood on the Southside of the Durham Freeway. This project, called The Durham Southside Revitalization, consists of redeveloping what was one of the most disinvested areas in Durham. WEAVERCOOKE provided preconstruction and construction services for Phase II of the revitalization.

Phase I of the Southside Revitalization completed shortly before Phase II began, and its ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in conjunction with the groundbreaking for Phase II.

Phase II now provides 85 units of mixed-income housing in 12 two- and three-story buildings that are a mix of flats and townhomes. A picnic area and playground are included as amenities with Phase II, and residents will also have access to the pool and clubhouse constructed in Phase I.
