Here's a great in-depth article on Christian Laettner and Brian Davis' "West End Village" project in downtown Durham. Along with Fuqua grad Tom Neimann, the Duke duo formed "Blue Devil Ventures" to construct and develop this mixed-use project from old abandoned tobacco warehouses. We've been closely watching their progress in gathering support for their plan and securing financing, so it's been great to see construction beginning to take place. This article also gives a good overview of the history of downtown Durham and how the partners of Blue Devil Ventures are making as much of a social statement as a real estate one. West End Village is a terrific project, and we wish them all the success in the world.
