This project is a socially responsible transformation of East Main Street in Downtown Durham, N.C., that not only activates East Main Street but also attracts businesses that have a social impact component to their business plan.
Our plan seeks to ensure that commercial tenants occupying the space contribute to improving the community more broadly. Specifically, the Project has a pre-Kindergarten operator within the commercial space adjacent to the linear park with exclusive outdoor play space to support approximately six classrooms providing high-quality early learning. Other businesses are planned to include office, retail, and/or eating, drinking and entertainment establishments. However, the by-laws that will govern leasing would provide a preference for businesses that have a social impact component to their operations.
