Expensive but excellent location.

Overall, we've been very happy with the property. The management is very communicative and nice. The gym is excellent, and there are workout and yoga classes weekly. Great outdoor spaces (pool, grills). The maintenance is also wonderful - very responsive and thorough.

Downsides: They haven't fixed the gas firepit in a very long time. The removed paper from the business center. The construction quality of the building is poor (walls and ceilings are thin); however, this seems to be an issue throughout 9th street apartment buildings. Lastly, there have been multiple fire alarms throughout the year.

I know the downsides sound bad, but most of them are what you will find anywhere on 9th street. At the end of the day, this is a very nice building and my wife and I have been very happy. We plan to stay two years.

Great except for management

I love being near the rest of the Fuqua student body but still a bit removed when I want quiet. The management has been very difficult to deal with, but that is rarely an issue. The maintenance team is very responsive and that matters way more.

Beautiful apartment building, can be a little noisy

BMain is a great apartment building, it's very modern and new with spacious apartments. There are also residents from other graduate schools as well as non-students. The building feels very much like an adult living situation, not like a dorm.

However, the train goes by right across the street which can be noisy, so be aware of what side of the building you get an apartment on. There have also been a few cockroaches :( but the building is pretty good about sending someone to spray.

ALSO, you can easily walk to Fuqua, it's only a 25 minute walk and you can cut through the beautiful duke gardens.

Best place on 9th St

BMain is the best place to live in the Main Street area, out of B9 and S9. Amazing property for the value. Wuiet complex and close enough to the 9th St area social scene (approx 3min walk to S9, 4min walk to B9). Neighbors are very respectable and management is friendly and responsive. Common areas are well-kept and maintenance is extremely responsive and friendly.

Ninth Street Reviews

111 reviews
Tiny "neighborhood" (does this one street even count as a neighborhood?) but has several key institutions, like supermarket, 5-7 nicer restaurants, 2 bars (both dive-y), a Duke store, a Pure Barre, several cute coffee shops, and random hipster shops. Short walk to Whole Foods, Cocoa Cinnamon, and Duke's East Campus (and Brodie Gym).
Close to 24Hr open Harris Teeter supermarket and many other small restaurants (including the famous Heavenly Buffaloes). There have been in the last two years about 4 assault reports that occurred at the Harris Teeter parking lot.
Most Fuquans live in this area. The Harris Teeter is convenient for walking. 9th Street has a lot of cool stores and restaurants. Easy to get to Fuqua.
Its fine. Nothing special. Just where most of the MBA students stay. Access to grocery store and some shops/eateries on Ninth Street.
Walkable to two grocery stores and countless places to eat. Safe and close to all my classmates. What more could I want?
You're within easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, and other major apartments popular with Fuqua students.
The immediate surrounding area seems to be quite safe, but if you go further, it doesn't look that good.
The 9th Street corridor is really pretty great. You are within walking distance of everything you'd need from a barber and a bank to beer and books. It is probably 5-10% more expensive (between Harris Teeter, apartment, and other shops markup) than other areas of Durham, however it is a great community if you're single and want to socialize.
