Crescent Resources broke ground today on a 303-unit apartment complex in Durham.
The $47 million project, called Circle Ninth Street, is being built on a six-acre site adjacent to Ninth Street and the historic Erwin Mill building.
The first units are expected to be available this fall.
Circle Ninth Street is to be similar to eco-friendly communities that Crescent has built in Florida and the Charlotte area.
The Charlotte developer is also behind The Residences at Cameron Village, a 282-unit apartment complex in the west Raleigh shopping center.
