Great place down town!

It's a beautiful place down town that was just recently constructed. It's near the bus station, and walking distance to downtown (~5 min). Filled with restaurants and bars. Adjacent to the beautiful American Tobacco campus. Definitely cheaper than living by the medical school, and makes up for the cost of a parking pass in like two months worth of rent. Gym, grand pool area, and dog park all available as well as parking.

Great place, great location

Right next to downtown. A bit pricey but worth it, never loses power during storms because of its central location. Has a gym and pool. Very pet friendly. Lots of dogs, in fact might be a bad place if you are allergic.

Right next to Durham Central Park. Relatively safe.
Interesting neighborhood. Not dangerous however there is a lot of noise due to surf club located right across the street.
