The American Tobacco Campus is located beside the Durham Bulls Triple-A baseball park, adjacent to a new 2,800-seat performing arts center (opening in 2008), and bordered by the highly traveled NC-147. The campus features an on-site YMCA, public green space and biking trails, and five restaurants.

American Tobacco is home to some of the most prominent businesses in the region, including the nationally recognized public broadcasting station, WUNC Radio. American Tobacco’s design and landscaping has collected industry awards for Best Mixed Use Development, Best Renovated Commercial Property, and Best Redevelopment Project.

The combination of historic buildings with modern urban chic is unlike any office space in the Triangle. Seasonal landscaping, especially in spring, fall, and at Christmas make the campus a destination for sightseers.

The area continues to undergo renovation and eventually will include 380 residential units, additional commercial office space and 40,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. American Tobacco is a registered historic site with roots in the American Tobacco Factory established in the 1800s.
