Durham is ablaze with construction. Just sitting here in Engine’s offices I can hear the beeps coming from the construction site next door to us. According to the Durham Chamber of Commerce (our friendly neighbors; durhamchamber.org) there is half a billion dollars worth of construction happening around us right now. There are cranes all over the place. The entire frontage of the city along 147 is being rebuilt. Old buildings are being refurbished and formerly vacant or underused land is being put to use. New hotels, new apartments, new public buildings, new businesses. There is a sense of vibrancy, renewal, purpose and progress. We love being in the middle of it and watching it all unfold.
