The proposed Southport Center, a new megamall to be built in south Durham, is creating controversy. Proponents point to the $4 - 5 million expected in sales and property tax revenue. They also point out that Wake County will build in the area if Durham doesn't. Opponents say the proposed I-40 location will create huge traffic jams and that the mall would derail any hopes for downtown revitalization.
