Measurement Durham, the real estate development arm of Measurement Inc., said today that it will begin construction next month on a 74,000 square foot building in downtown Durham.
The $12 million project, to be located at the corner of Hunt and Morris streets, is the first of several buildings that will make up Morris Ridge, a larger development planned for the block bordered by Durham Central Park and Hunt, Morris and Corporation streets.
Measurement Incorporated, which develops and scores educational and professional exams for state and local agencies, will occupy half the building. Urban Plant Mobile is also leasing space in the building.
The five-story building is expected to be completed by July 2012.
