This week I got a preview tour of One City Center, 110 Corcoran Street, downtown Durham.
Outside there’s more Bull City imagery, with the Durham Bull in front of Bulldega, which you can see on the ground floor corner (still under construction). Four flights up is the wework sign.
Here is one view of the patio on the 6th floor:
The patio is also open to the east:
Behind me is the exercise room, facing south:
The model condo is on the 8th floor. Here’s what it looks like when you walk in:
Looking back toward the kitchen:
You see me in the reflection in the mirror. I’m wearing a hard hat and a vest, both mandatory. It’s a construction zone. I also had to wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
Okay, that’s the model.
What’s going on in my condo, quite a few floors up? Well, here’s what you see when you open the front door:
Looking back at the kitchen:
The entrance to the balcony from the living area:
I am so fortunate to have a view of the Honeymoon Suite at the 21c Hotel. It opens onto the balcony with the bench:
Closets and hallway from the bedroom leading to the bath:
That’s it. Not much more to see here.
The 28th floor is of interest. It is the common area for the apartments and condos. It has lots of interior space:
A fireplace, among other things:
An outdoor swimming pool:
A hot tub:
And grill area:
The tiles needing to be laid are rather sculptural:
Here’s Susan Hearst as she leads me to the end of the tour.
We’ll now go back down to the ground floor.
I’m happy to have this Before record of One City Center. I’ll be sure to make an After record of it when One City Center is completed.
