One City Center Launches Striking New Website


New Site Offers a Sneak Peak into the Unprecedented New Durham Development

DURHAM, NC – July, 2016– One City Center launches a fresh website today that gives prospective home buyers, office tenants, retailers and the City of Durham an in-depth look into the new landmark property. Slated for completion in the spring of 2018, One City Center will provide the core with an iconic symbol of growth and ex- citing transformation for Downtown Durham’s vitality and energy. The website, like the building, is reflective of the personality of Durham from its visual photographs and video content, to its comprehensive neighborhood maps. One City Center is the result of a unique partnership between the acclaimed developers Austin Lawrence Partners (ALP), CO & NC-based, and Virginia-based REIT Armada Hoffler Properties.

Through stunning photography, videos, renderings, floor plans and maps, the new website brings to life what makes One City Center an important addition to the skyline of the Bull City. Prospective buyers, tenants and the community can now explore the stunning residential properties, expansive office spaces and prime retail spaces. Sales for the residential units have been extraordinarily strong and the launch of the new website opens One City Center to an even larger audience.

“We are excited to share the progress and excitement of One City Center on the website,” says Jane Hills, Partner, ALP. “We cannot thank the City of Durham enough for all of their support and we are absolutely thrilled to be such an integral part of the downtown core. We would also like to thank Armada Hoffler for their valued partner- ship in bringing this project to life!”

The website (www.onecitycenter.com) will continue to evolve until the opening with updates on retailers, office tenants and other project news.


ALP has been creating homes, offices, shops and all other sorts of beautiful places for over 32 years. They have earned a strong reputation around the country for their work, which currently totals over three million square feet of developments and more than 2,000 multi-family units. Their strategy for each has been to soak up the environment, and let the work reflect a place’s history and heart. The results have won awards and, more than that, won the approval of Preservation Societies, City Councils and, of course, families and neighborhoods nationwide. ALP has offices in Aspen, CO and Durham, NC and ongoing projects in Durham, NC and Coeur d’Alene, ID.

Reshaping Downtown Durham

Great article about the ONE CITY CENTER and Downtown Durham's renaissance from The News & Observer: 

"For all the attention the ongoing revitalization of downtown Raleigh has drawn in recent years, it’s hard not to think that it will soon be overshadowed by the activity sweeping downtown Durham."

"As for the 27-story tower, which is to be built on the former Woolworth’s site, that will include 25,000 square feet of retail, 130,000 square feet of office, 31 condos and 109 apartments. Duke University has already agreed to lease 55,000 square feet of office space in the tower."
