West Village

Excellent location (downtown) with very cool apartments. It is a renovated tobacco warehouse with exposed brick and beams, and large warehouse style windows.

Flowers Building

Pros:
- Great location downtown. Durham's best restaurants and bars are walkable.
- Apartment was spacious with nice features. Has an industrial vibe.
- Relatively inexpensive (compared to some other complexes)
- Can catch the Bull City Connector bus to go to school
- I recommend the Flowers building which has large windows letting in light (as compared to Hicks or Toms). I also think Flowers gets fewer students.

Cons (some depending on your perspective):
- Not as many Fuqua students
- The Connor Group took over management in 2016 and tried to price gauge everyone (e.g. opening offer for lease renewal of $700 inc per month).
- Walls for bedrooms don't go all the way up, so not a great spot for roommates. You can have a convo between bedrooms.

Great Location, Great Character

West Village has an awesome feel to the buildings- with high ceilings and exposed brick, it is very homey. It's also a great location as you're right downtown. Mgmt is fine, amenities are fine, it doesn't have a great community feel with the neighbors; but as b-school students we didn't care about that as much bc we have the Fuqua community.

Nice Downtown Location with Great Amenities

West Village is in Downtown Durham close to a lot of the nice cafes, restaurants, and bars. The campus has a mix of new and old buildings, but they all share great amenities. Most of the tenants are young professionals with a few grad students. I love the location, but the only downside is that it's not quite walking distance to Station 9 where most of the Fuqua students live.

Central to Durham and Duke

West Village is perfectly located in downtown Durham right where all the bars and restaurants are that Fuqua's like to go to which makes it easy to avoid FOMO and walk right over to the Social, Tyler's, or Shooters! More so, the apartments are simply beautiful with high ceilings, modern kitchens with granite countertops, wood floors, and even exposed brick walls and balconies in some units. It's better value for money than S9, plus it's really cool to live in a 100 year tobacco warehouse. The gym is huge compared to most apartment gyms and you have easy access to parking garages, parking lots, and two swimming pools. Living here has made me feel more a part of the Durham community, more active with access to bike and running trails just down the street, and close to everything that's going on. I don't know why more people don't live here!
