Downtown Durham

The Downtown

Downtown Durham retains the striking architecture of its historic role as the hub of America’s tobacco industry, a major railroad stop, a shopping destination, and the home of Black Wall Street, where African-American financial companies flourished even during segregation.

Today the city is home to an increasing number of leading Triangle employers who value its vibrancy and innovative style. The city also makes its mark by hosting dozens of festivals and art events each year, including the American Dance Festival, Bull Durham Blues Festival, Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, Art of Cool Festival, Moogfest, Centerfest, the NC Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the World Beer Festival, Art Walk, and Third Friday.

Easy access from downtown Durham to the Durham Freeway, the I-85 and I-40 corridors, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and the campuses of Duke University and North Carolina Central University add to the location’s desirability.

At the center of the city is Baldwin Lofts. From its windows, you can look out onto the American Tobacco entertainment and office district, the landmark 17-story Hill Building, the stunning Durham Performing Arts Center, the baseball park of the legendary Durham Bulls, and bustling Main Street.
