Contributing to the Renaissance of
West Chapel Hill Street.
1200 West Chapel Hill Street was home to a Pure gas station in the 1960s, when the corridor had a thriving business district. The gas station closed in the 1990s as businesses began to struggle, and the property has been in declining use since then. A church held services there on Sundays between 2004 and 2013, but the building was vacant on weekdays and has been fully vacant since 2013.
Our project will create a vibrant new restaurant space at the Kent and West Chapel Hill Street Intersection.
Some of our project’s highlights include:
Full environmental remediation of site already completed at cost of $60,000.
Full renovation and expansion of a vacant, outdated commercial building.
New restaurant and catering kitchen to be opened on the property; Owner, Wendy Woods has successful track record of two other restaurants and 17 years in business in the City of Durham.
Creation of 36 new full time restaurant and catering jobs.
Construction is set to begin September 2016 and be completed Early 2017.
