Up in the Old Motel

Record #:
The historic Jack Tar Motel in Durham will be renovated to a boutique motel after years of decay have affected the property. What will happen to residents who have lived illegally at the Durham landmark for the last ten years is uncertain. Ronnie Sturdivant, the property’s former owner, ran a flophouse out of the hotel’s rooms, but neglected fixing many of the problems. The hotel will be the site of future businesses, a sports bar, a lounge, and 74 rooms for rent, but will not include its current tenants.
