With the University Hill development very nearby, this is another development that seems to be centered around the Durham-Orange Light Rail corridor. It is a little surprising that they are only including 2,000 sq feet of retail space. This project is right in Patterson Place, so there is quite a bit of retail in the area, but in its current state, Patterson Place isn't very walkable.

The approved plan is phase 1, so there may be more retail and/or office space coming in later phases as well. I don't have too much to say about this that isn't already covered in my thoughts for University Hill, but it is more evidence of growth along 15/501. It's not where I would want to live, but more housing in the area is needed and there will be people who are interested in living there for the amenities and ease of commute.
