Durham's Mixed Use Parking Garage

I will be honest. When I've driven the downtown loop and seen the construction at the corner of Morgan and Mangum, I didn't pay much attention. My thought process went something like this:

"Hmm, a new parking garage - what a waste of potential. It will be a dead zone that won't attract foot traffic or vibrancy"
"Oh well, at least it is replacing a parking lot, so we are just creating additional parking without changing much."
I was COMPLETELY wrong not to look into this further. The plan that Durham has for this parking garage is much more exciting. A Mixed-Use Parking Garage
