The Urban Village Is Born


Author(s):
Abstract:
Durham's West Village is one example of how to avoid adding to urban sprawl. The village is 243 loft-style apartments constructed using 45 different floor plans, and located downtown in Durham's historic tobacco district. The project is the dream of three former Duke basketball players and began five years ago. What was once a dying industrial district with empty buildings now offers living spaces within walking distance of shopping, dining, and entertainment.
