The Durham BullHouse mixed-use project is one of a cluster of developments that is enhancing the downtown Durham landscape along the Durham Freeway corridor. McAdams provided landscape architecture and engineering services for the 305-unit, low-rise apartment community and streetscape along Dillard and Pettigrew Streets in downtown Durham. Amenities include a gym-quality fitness center and yoga room; multiple social gathering spaces; resort-style pool with outdoor kitchen; and a roof-top terrace with views overlooking the Durham Bulls Ballpark. The streetscape features decorative paving; stepped retaining walls to resolve steep grade changes; decorative fencing and columns; and an outdoor courtyard; as well as enhanced planting areas and tree pits with structural soil and root paths to achieve healthy tree growth and reduce maintenance. The design successfully implemented the connectivity and aesthetic goals of Durham’s Downtown Design district and integrates with the historical Veneble center.
