Our staff answers: Where is your No. 1 spot in Durham to take out-of-town guests? I like to take them to the rooftop bar of The Durham Hotel. Nothing beats a view of our ever-changing skyline at sunset (and a few fancy cocktails to go along with it is icing on the cake). The Scrap Exchange, because usually they have nothing like it in their city. It has something for everyone – whether it’s a treasured old vinyl album they wish they’d never thrown out and have now found again, or that piece of scrap fabric they need to finish a costume, or just some decorative or useful oddity, my visitors hardly ever leave empty-handed. Duke University and Sarah P. Duke Gardens. We usually go to the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University’s cafe for lunch and walk through exhibits before or after. Easy to park, cafe menu is great for a delicious and light lunch, and it’s a beautiful, educational and fun spot Mad Hatter’s Cafe & Bakeshop has delicious, quick menu items and tasty treats. My favorite is the coconut cake! Sarah P. Duke Gardens is great any time of year, and my 3-yearold daughter loves to show off the fish pond. I can never pass up a quick visit to Duke Chapel and show off how beautiful it is. I’d suggest a walking food and drink tour since our city has become a dining and drink destination! Grab a Cubano lunch at Copa, shop for locally made products at Bulldega, take in art and a cocktail at 21c Museum Hotel, go see a movie at the historic Carolina Theatre and grab a late dinner at Bar Virgile.

FINDING MY PLACE ears ago, I remember driving down Hwy. 147, looking at the Durham skyline on my left. Back then, N.C. Mutual, the Hill building (before it was 21c Museum Hotel) and the American Tobacco water tower were the tallest figures, and I was grateful to call this city my home. It didn’t have that big-city feeling, where you seem to just blend into a crowd, like Raleigh or Charlotte, but it’s still larger than most. And boy, has it grown by leaps and bounds since then. It’s impressive. I can almost guarantee that even the folks behind downtown’s revitalization couldn’t have predicted this rapid growth we’re seeing today. But the people who are moving in now are realizing what many have known all along – that Durham is a truly special place filled with people who care about this city. I’m lucky that my job allows me to interact with so many of these people and explore every side of it that I can. When I first moved here nearly eight years ago, my favorite spots were the classics – West Point on the Eno, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, DPAC, Durham Bulls (which you should absolutely visit if you’re new here!). But I was able to settle into my comfort zone in the city by talking to the bartenders at my own neighborhood bar, Dain’s Place; by taking a behind-the-scenes tour at the Duke Lemur Center; by adopting my two cats from our local shelter, the Animal Protection Society of Durham; and by walking or biking the Ellerbe Creek Trail, American Tobacco Trail or the trails in Duke Forest. You’ll find your place here, too, I’m sure of it. Durham is an entirely different breed of city – a mix of the old and the new, still evolving at every turn. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

THE BEST OF DURHAM
RUB Durham’s sandwich selection is solid; I always make sure to scope out the specials menu because there are usually some interesting options on there. I recently ordered the Brussels sprouts sandwich special with fried egg, bacon and feta. I never would have thought of Brussels in a sandwich, but it worked! And the housemade chips are always a yummy side. One of the best kept secrets at GRUB may be the desserts: large cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing or a huge, decadent slice of mud pie. I also enjoy the atmosphere at GRUB – it feels like a modern-day Durham diner, and the rooftop terrace adds to the energy of this West End location. I grew up in a seaside town in New England, so I really love that more seafood options are making an appearance in Durham. Seafood lovers could easily go wild ordering all kinds of lavish seafood towers, lobster Newberg and seafood stew at Saint James, but what I also appreciate is that some of the more understated menu items are also worth your while. Baked oysters with bone marrow and Parmigiano, and a good portion of delicious fried oysters on the Caesar salad were my favorites before the entrees even arrived. Stylish from dumplings to kimchi korean pancakes, you’ll find something for everyone nautical details are carefully thought through from the lively downstairs bar in your group at Namu, voted one of our best new restaurants. to the cozy, upstairs Captain’s Quarters. The variety of seafood on Saltbox Seafood Joint’s menu at its new Namu is the place to go for casual Korean food, and you can enjoy Durham-Chapel Hill Boulevard location changes often depending it while relaxing outside in a beautiful patio oasis or in the eclectic on what’s freshly caught off the coastline and what they sell out of interior. I’m a big fan of anything with kimchi, so I always order it as first. But it almost doesn’t matter what the menu says, because it’s a side (they have two kinds) or get the kimchi Korean pancakes as a all cooked in the same style, and it all tastes great! I always order side. The Mandoo (Korean dumplings) are also very tasty, and with a platter so that I can enjoy hearty chunks of chef Ricky Moore’s Bo’s Special, you can get a bowl with some dumplings on top. I love spice-grilled fish (King Mackerel is one of my favorites when it’s being able to mix and match meats, flavors, spice levels and all the available), along with the crispy seasoned potatoes and vinegar sauces to create a different meal each time I go. If I go with friends slaw. If I’m extra hungry, I order a side of their special Hush-Honeys. or family, we order a little bit of everything.

Belly up to the bar at our favorite bottle shops
o me, the best part about our local bottle shops is the fact that so many of them are also a bar where you can sample flights and pints before making your selections to take home. Most also have selections of cider, wine, mead, even kombucha, for folks who prefer those beverages. But I am here for the beer. I was first introduced to Beer Study in Chapel Hill – a narrow, hip bottle shop on North Graham Street. So I was thrilled when I learned that they’d be opening a Durham spot in Rockwood Shopping Center last year, and that Starpoint Brewing – then based in Carrboro – would be coming with them. It’s super pup-friendly, and every time I come in I’m greeted by either pug Layla, who “runs the place,” or Hobbes, Head Brewer Nikko Carlson’s dog who sports an adorable underbite. Starpoint Brewing was founded by Beth Boylan and Tim Harper “as a labor of love for hoppy beers,” which means plenty incredible IPAs are always on tap. The Surfin’ Buddha is my go-to, or I get the DUH! double IPA after a long workweek. Last time I was in, fellow beer lovers Alex Adams and Carl Stephens clued me into DigitalPour, which displays all three dozen or so beers on tap in the shop, but is also a downloadable app, so you can see what’s available or new – and how much is left in the keg – before you come down. The Glass Jug has been around for close to four years, but an expansion this year brought with it a nanobrewery and outdoor beer garden. The Glass Jug Beer Lab boasts more than 20 taps, with a few dedicated to their own small-batch, experimental beers. I’m glad to see that owners Chris and Katy Creech, homebrewers themselves long before they launched The Glass Jug, are getting back to their roots with this new spot, still in the Greenwood Commons Shopping Center. While the draft list is always changing, you simply have to try one of their own unconventional beers, like the Tomatillo and Lemon Basil Pi Gose with tomatillo, lemon basil and sea salt that was on tap when we visited. It’s also one of the few places I’ve seen Unibroue’s La Fin du Monde on tap. If you’re a fan of Belgians, this is a classic. Known as The Blue Light to Durham longtimers, Sam’s Quik Shop had been around for 70 years before closing at the end of last year. I’d been buying beer there for only the last seven and was sad to see this institution come to an end. But, Sam’s Bottle Shop is under the same ownership as the Quik Shop, and I think of it as the younger, flashy, South Durham brother to the original Sam’s (it opened in 2014). Two stories tall, there are two bars with 28 taps between them to order from, but one is upstairs, where you can grab your brew – I like anything that’s local; if Foothills Hoppyum is on tap, that’s my order – and walk across the bridge that overlooks the first floor, with its shelves packed with hundreds of different kinds of beer, to the outside patio, overlooking N.C. 54. These bottle shops all have a few things in common – they are pet-friendly, have some of the best selections of bottles in the area, the staff are super knowledgeable about beer and don’t mind giving recommendations, and, if you’re a regular, they treat you more like family than a customer. They’re more neighborhood bars than retail shops, but you can still get that six-pack to go. Win-win. – Amanda MacLaren

NEIGHBORHOODS “I mean, honestly, if I had the chance to do [it] over, I don’t think I’d change anything,” says Jamie Hahn (left) with wife, Amanda, on the front porch of their old north durham home that they deconstructed and rebuilt with the help of builders gail crabtree and rama mills.
Recently, the Raleigh-Durham area was named as the No. 13 best place to live in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report – so you know you’ve come to a great city. Growella also found that Durham was the No. 1 best city for millennials to live. But relocation can be overwhelming, starting with figuring out how to find a home. We asked Tom Colley – president of the Durham Regional Association of Realtors (durhamrealtors.org), which represents more than 1,500 Realtors and associate members in the Triangle – to give us an overview of the local market.

How would you describe our current real estate market? And how has it changed over the last year or so?
Things are good, that’s No 1. We had a visit from Hurricane Florence and obviously we took a hit on the number of listings and the number of contracts and overall real estate in Durham. So the 22 2019 DURHAM MAGAZINE VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE
September numbers were down. But the good news is, they came back. Very quickly. The numbers are healthy again. That bodes well for 2019. Durham is ahead of the national numbers. Number of days on the market is very strong here. The national average is 44, and in Durham, it’s 20. In the Triangle, it’s 32. Obviously the challenge that we have right now is inventory, although inventory went slightly up in November. It is still a competitive market for buyers.
The question is: How much should I look at those apps, and where should buyers and sellers turn to look at the real world? I can only speak a cautionary note. You have to be careful because, for Realtors®, sometimes these apps are not the most accurate. For somebody moving into the area, they need to find a Realtor® that they trust.
For people who are planning to move to the area, there is this quick turnaround period where a home might be under contract before you even get to see it – so, do you advise then that those people instead come here, rent for a little bit, get their bearings of where they might want to live in the city, and then think about buying?
It depends on the circumstance. I think first-time homebuyers should perhaps think about doing it that way because they are less experienced in buying a home. The younger you are, the What are your tips more apt and comfortable you on choosing the right are with renting.

How do apps like Zillow, Trulia and Redfin factor into the home search process? Are there best practices when it comes to potential buyers using these apps?
What types of homes are people buying? How would you describe the styles of homes Durham?
Well, in the South, you’re not going to get too many basements, and ranches are going to be a big thing. Cape Cods are popular. Colonials are popular given a certain price point. Some mid-century – there are a lot of mid-centuries especially in Hope Valley and near Duke University. We have our share of bungalows in Durham, and they are really cute. We don’t have many split levels. We have some modern homes here, and they’re in the upper price range, more than $700,000. Once you’ve moved here, what’s the best way to get settled and make Durham feel like home?
Civic organizations, religious organizations, PTAs, school systems ... get involved with the Durham Public Schools if you have children. Get involved as soon as possible and as much as you can. Just rub shoulders with people. Sure we have Internet and sure we have social media, but that’s not the best way to get involved in the city. Think about the YMCA and various organizations, like Habitat for Humanity or a myriad others. You could even get involved in city politics, which is very active in Durham.

these kinds of places. Or Parkwood, [an older neighborhood], if you want to get in there and get a good deal and fix it up, Parkwood is a good spot if that’s the kind of home that you want. Again, it overall reflects the good market in Durham. It’s just solid. Now the question that I want to address is the crystal ball piece: Is it going to be 2019 that we fall off the cliff, or is it going to be 2020? The experts are saying it might turn, with the rising interest rates, a lot of younger people renting and a few other reasons. I tend to think that 2019 is going to be a great year. It’s going to be a twin year to 2018, just keep on trucking, in Durham and nationally. We’ll see if the spring market does what it did last year – everything just popped, everything just did well. In 2019, I think the price per square foot is going to go up a little bit. The days on market are going to stay solid. The month’s supply of inventory – nationally it’s 4.3 months, and the triangle is 2.6 months, that’s how much inventory we have on the shelf. In Durham, it’s 1.6, , although in November the supply went up.

In fact, what makes the neighborhood truly special is the sense of community that exists here. One of Durham’s oldest residential areas, it has an almost suburban vibe, but is still within walking distance of stores and services. And above all, the people who live there know their neighbors, work together to create community institutions and look after one another. “It’s a highly involved group of people,” says Tom Miller, a longtime resident who lives on Virginia Avenue. “They see the neighborhood as a community benefit and a community obligation.” Aside from serving on the board and organizing a few of the deep-rooted events in the area, Tom is also Watts-Hillandale’s unofficial historian. He explains how the neighborhood was initially established in the early 1900s along West Club Boulevard, with grand houses that were owned by doctors, politicians and developers. Thanks to World War I and the Depression, further development didn’t really pick up until the late 1930s, when the area saw a spurt of growth: small homes that soon were affordable to soldiers returning home from the second World War. By the 1980s, though, Watts-Hillandale was in a state of “gentle decline,” as Tom puts it; the original residents were aging, and many homes were rental properties owned by a few landlords. But new, younger residents like Tom brought energy, and in 1984, they
founded the Watts Hospital-Hillandale Neighborhood Association. The neighborhood is home to a number of community leaders. Mayor Steve Schewel lives in Watts-Hillandale, as does state Senator Mike Woodard, former city council member Don Moffitt and SelfHelp Credit Union CEO Martin Eakes. There’s also a good handful of business owners in the area, people like Dave Wofford – he recently relocated his Horse & Buggy Press studio and art gallery to Broad Street from downtown – and Sidney Cruze, owner of Ninth Street’s Zola Craft Gallery (and Don’s wife). Another key element in Watts-Hillandale’s popularity is the much-beloved local elementary school, E.K. Powe. “There’s a real commitment to bringing out the best in kids there,” says Don, whose daughter, Izzy, now 13, attended the school. Residents say community support for the school has vastly grown over the past decade, and local businesses often host fundraiser events for it. Today, the neighborhood hums with life. There’s a busy listserv, a crowded playground in the center of the neighborhood – Oval Park, one of the most popular in town – as well as one at its top boundary, Indian Trail Park, plus a slew of events throughout the year that draw both neighbors and folks from outside the community. Residents include longtimers who’ve raised kids in the neighborhood, young families who just bought their first homes and renters of all ages.

As newlyweds, Lynn and Logan Toms had to decide where to live. Logan, a Raleigh native, worked there, but Lynn was in business development for American Express and covered the territory from Greensboro to Charlotte. Durham was the compromise. When they moved here in 1995, they first bought a condo in the Innisfree townhouse neighborhood, across Old Chapel Hill Road from Hope Valley. “We used to walk through Hope Valley and admire the golf course views and old homes – we had friends there, and moving here became a goal of ours,” Lynn says. As they walked, they discovered that Hope Valley had houses ranging from the large and stately homes built in the 1920s to the more modest built in the ’50s and ’60s, with newer ones in between. The layout of the English-named streets is somewhat like a bowl of spaghetti. “It was easy to get lost in the beautiful neighborhood, so we looked at houses as we tried to find our way home.” Eventually they discovered a small one-story cottage on Rugby Road. “It was the perfect starter home for us,” Lynn says.

POPULATION Nearly 3,000, according to the Parkwood Association HOME STYLES Primarily ranches and split-levels, with a few craftsman and newer construction homes MEDIAN HOME SALE PRICE $215,000 “If you look at the maps of 1970s Durham, it says, ‘Parkwood, unincorporated,’” says Parkwood resident George Smart. “It was going to be its own community. There was a grocery store and a gas station and a fire department.” It still feels very much like its own unique corner of Durham. Across more than 100 acres, there’s a lake (George owns a lot that backs up to it), four playgrounds, trails, a ballfield and pool, a convenience store, an elementary George smart and wife, eleanor stell, on their school, several dock on parkwood’s lake. houses of worship,
and a Mediterranean grill and grocery. The first homes were occupied in late 1960, and since Parkwood – which was built primarily to meet housing needs of employees at the new Research Triangle Park – was situated in a pretty rural area at the time, having amenities like plenty of green space and a neighborhood school made it a bit more attractive. Now that many of the homes are more than 50 years old and modestly sized, the neighborhood attracts a diverse group of homebuyers and many young families on a budget. A strict budget, along with the character of the older homes in the neighborhood, was what initially drew Tomara Gee and her husband, Spencer, to Parkwood. The Gees and daughters, Zadie, 10, and Sophie, 7, take advantage of Parkwood’s plentiful community events and activities. “They’ve been revamping the playgrounds, so the one near us is new,” Tomara says. “Now they’ve stocked [the lake] with fish, so my neighbors go up and fish and find turtles and other wildlife.”

Though its homes and amenities offer many modern comforts, Croasdaile’s history is rooted in Durham’s early rural communities. John Sprunt Hill, prominent Durham financier in the early 20th century, was an avid golfer. He invested in several golf clubs during the Great Depression, including the Durham Country Club (the original holes became Hillandale Golf Course) and Forest Hills (now a neighborhood park and clubhouse). By the late 1950s, his daughter, Frances Hill Fox, and her husband, Dr. Herbert Fox, had inherited one of these pieces of land. They decided to transform 500 acres of the Hillandale Dairy Farm into a golf course community and established Croasdaile Country Club in 1966. For the Foley family, Croasdaile has given them the sense of home that they wanted for their kids, son Jake, 16, and daughter Ryan, 10. “It feels like we’re 10 minutes from everything, from quiet walks to downtown restaurants,” Charlene says (Jack Tar is a current favorite). “Dain’s Place is a standby,” Mike adds. “And our kids have loved Elmo’s Diner since they were toddlers – it’s all part of the life here.” Charlene currently serves on the board of directors for the country club and has worked for BlueCross BlueShield for the past 21 years. “I love being able to walk into the clubhouse and see so many friendly faces,” she says. “We have friends from age 5 to 95. Our kids have close friends they have grown up with, and we can really say we know our neighbors.”

served as early connectors to the rest of

natural stopover point. The establishment

Walking to their favorite restaurants is one of the things Lucy and Bill Stokes love about living downtown.
By the early 1900s, downtown was a booming hub of
entrepreneurship. Tobacco-curing warehouses, banks and state-ofthe-art hotels offered a place to meet, do business, shop and enjoy the era’s most popular entertainment option: the cinema. Life in
Durham today may look and feel a lot different, but for those living downtown, it hasn’t lost an ounce of its charm.

family histories back to that time. Lucy’s great-grandfather, E.K.

downtown story includes ongoing projects for Lucy and plenty of what Bill says has
made downtown special for decades: walks to delicious restaurants, evenings spent
enjoying shows at DPAC and The Carolina Theatre or cheering on the Durham Bulls,
and plenty of train watching from their loft.

Got a sweet tooth? Try all of Durham’s favorite frozen treats, as voted by our readers (clockwise from top left): strawberry ice cream at The Parlour, cookies & cream and lemon curd pops from Locopops, raspberry ice cream in a waffle cone from Goodberry’s Frozen Custard, and a strawberry sorbet and vanilla ice cream sandwich from Rose’s Noodles, Dumplings & Sweets.
ABOVE Bull City Running Co. hosts Kids Run Durham, a running series for ages 4 to 12, every Sunday in Northgate Park for five weeks in the fall and spring. Kids get personalized bibs and can choose to participate in the 100-meter, 400-meter, 800-meter or 1-mile race. They are encouraged to try any and all distances, the only restriction being that the 100-meter dash is reserved for ages 6 and younger. Here, Eden Cooper (left) and Ellis Lewin run to the starting line. LEFT Canchánchara (pronounced can-CHAN- cha-ra) was originally made with aguardiente (literally “fire water” – the raw, un-aged “moonshine” to Cuban rum). COPA Owner Elizabeth Turnbull explains that it’s hard to find a good aguardiente here, and it can also be too strong for many drinkers to enjoy. So, the Cuban restaurant substitutes with Fair Game Beverage Company’s No’lasses. “The No’lasses is made with sorghum and has just enough grassiness and sharpness to it that it evokes many of the same qualities as a good aguardiente, but with a lower alcohol content,” she says. RIGHT We featured artist Saba Taj on the cover of our annual Women’s Issue. At the time, she was teaching art at Githens Middle School. Just a month later, she was named the new gallery director of The Carrack Modern Art. Born and raised in Raleigh, she’s lived in Durham since 2004 and graduated with a bachelor’s in art education from North Carolina Central University in 2011. Saba says that if one thing is for sure, it’s that she’s an artist. “It’s what I feel like I’m here for,” she says. “It’s the most true thing I’ve known about myself for the longest time.” 46 2019 DURHAM MAGAZINE VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE

East Durham Bake Shop Owner Ali Rudel opened the business with her husband, Ben Filippo, in March 2018. They serve baked goods and simple soups and salads to a tight-knit community of customers. “We’re committed to this being a small space, a community space,” Ali says. East Durham Bake Shop evolved from East Durham Pie Company, the popular operation Ali launched out of her home five years ago. She learned how to bake at the renowned Four & Twenty Blackbirds in New York City. Coincidence landed Ali, a Massachusetts native, and Ben, a Florida native, in Durham in 2011, where “it felt like home almost immediately,” Ali says. Here, Ben, Ali and their daughters Esme, 7, and Beatrice, 4, work together to create something delicious at the South Driver Street bake shop. LEFT Singer/songwriter Kamara Thomas called New York City and Los Angeles home before finding her place here among our artists and performers. Last spring, she taught voice lessons and songwriting classes at the Durham Arts Council, and she’ll release her debut album, “Tularosa: An American Dreamtime,” in 2019. Last summer, she opened for Valerie June, another earthy, soulful singer, at Durham Central Park’s PLAYlist concert series.

Jewelsmith has a team of metalsmiths, gemologists and design associates. Pictured are the 10 who have been with the store for a decade or more â€” evidence of the value the store places on staff development and expertise.
JEWELSMITH Over the past 40 years, Jewelsmith has grown from a 500-square-foot store in an alley at Lakewood Shopping Center to a 4,000-square-foot gallery and design studio at Erwin Square on Main Street, just west of Ninth. Some things haven’t changed at all: the client-driven focus on custom design; the use of finest-quality metals, diamonds and colored stones; and the emphasis on jewelry as an art form — as if it were small-scale sculpture — and on centuriesold principles of craftsmanship. In many other ways, Jewelsmith is constantly changing and innovating: using the most up-to-date technology to create intricate and surprising forms; investigating unusual and eye-catching materials, such as pure gold, meteorite and gems in their rough, uncut state; and working with clients to turn staid, seldom-worn heirlooms into pieces that are ahead of trend. An innovator in Durham before its rapid urbanization, Jewelsmith is one of the reasons for the city’s vibrancy today.

BRIGHTLEAF SQUARE Comprised of two historic warehouses joined by a beautifully landscaped courtyard, Brightleaf Square was among the first of downtown Durham attractions to undergo revitalization in the early 1980’s. During this time, the buildings were converted into mixed-use spaces, which today are occupied by independent and locally owned retailers, a diverse group of restaurants, as well as professional offices. In the center of it all, the courtyard plays host to a myriad of local events including a summer concert series. Visitors to the Square can stroll through the courtyard as they discover uncommon finds, dine at one of a kind restaurants and delight in the ambience of Durham’s past and future.

CROASDAILE DENTAL ARTS Maintaining a successful business for more than 45 years requires just the right combination of elements. At Croasdaile Dental Arts, this formula consists of an experienced staff that builds lasting relationships with patients as they invest in the greater Durham community by supporting local charities. Now co-owners of the practice, Dr. William Turner and Dr. Jason Butler first joined Croasdaile as associates in 2002 and 2009, respectively. Dr. Melissa Owen most recently joined the team in 2018. By providing aesthetic, restorative and preventative dental care while incorporating patients into their extended family, the team at Croasdaile has become a fixture in the Durham community.

IMMACULATA CATHOLIC SCHOOL Founded in 1909 by the Sisters of St. Dominic, Immaculata Catholic School has long served students from many backgrounds and of various faiths. The Sisters believed that a Catholic education that demands academic excellence should be available to any family who sought such a foundation. More than a century later, Immaculata continues this legacy by affordably educating children with the same focus and mission. While rooted in time-honored values, Immaculata is dedicated to continuous improvement and advancement. Notably, Immaculata’s Middle School program recently earned the distinction of being the first and only in North Carolina to become AdvancED STEM certified. Immaculata prepares students to tackle the challenges of our age and our future. They learn to approach the world with compassion, equity and thoughtful problem-solving skills. Immaculata is a National Blue Ribbon School and a local treasure for Durham.

BRENT L. BLAYLOCK, DDS For more than 35 years, Dr. Brent L. Blaylock has served the Durham community as a cosmetic and restorative dentist. After earning his degree from the UNC School of Dentistry, he moved to Durham and began practicing in 1982. Dr. Blaylock provides care to patients of a wide range of ages—from adolescence to more than 100 years old. Additionally, he volunteers several times a year with other members of the Southwest Durham Rotary Club to treat Urban Ministries and TROSA residents. In taking time to identify and address each patient’s needs and desires, Dr. Blaylock has become one of Durham’s most trusted dentists.

KIEFER LANDSCAPING AND NURSERY What began as a fascination with the diversity of plants in ninth grade is now a rewarding career for Mark Kiefer. In 1984, he began working in residential yards and quickly noticed the need for quality workmanship and creative landscape. Four years and many contacts later, Kiefer Landscaping was incorporated; a small retail nursery was later added in 1995. Today, customers can explore unique landscapes surrounded by unusual, hard-to-find plants grown by the Kiefer staff on the premises of the 10-acre nursery. Shoppers can also find assorted garden tools and gifts in their historic gift shop, Miss Lilyâ€™s Pad.

Grabbing a pint and some grub at the many other dog-friendly restaurants and breweries in Durham with your four-legged friend is always a good idea. But the Bull City has a number of canine-specific events and businesses to try out, too! Yappy Hour Beer tasting for you and your dog – don’t worry, dog beer is non-alcoholic and made from meat broth – plus biscuits, human food and live music at this regular fundraiser, held monthly each fall. Durham Parks Foundation hosts the benefit to support the future Rock Quarry Dog Park. Bark in the Park April 29, May 15, June 12, July 24, August 21 This series of Durham Bulls games invites dogs and their owners to attend a ball game with a special pregame pup (and owner) parade on the field. Be sure to purchase human ($9) and canine ($5) tickets for the event. All proceeds of the pup tickets are donated to Second Chance Pet Adoptions. Pooch Plunge Cool off with your canines at Hillside Pool for a day of play. Held each year right after the pool is closed to humans, typically right after Labor Day. Beer Durham’s Dog Days Party with your pup during this monthly get-together in support of the Animal Protection Society (APS) of Durham. A portion of draft sales benefits the shelter, and – if you’re looking for a furry friend – some adoptable pets will be on-site, too. Bring items you’d like to donate to the shelter – food, bedding, old sheets/towels, toys, etc. are always welcome! (For cat lovers, APS hosts adoptable cats at The Regulator Bookshop and Barnes Supply Co. regularly as well!) Paint Your Pet Unleash your inner artist and bring your fluffy companion to life on canvas with the help of Wine & Design, held at rotating downtown venues.

A portion of all proceeds go to support the Animal Protection Society of Durham. Other End of the Leash + Oliver’s Collar Shop till you drop with a best pup friend at these two pet boutiques. Don’t forget to pick up some fresh-made treats while you’re there and check the stores’ calendars for pet-friendly events. ZoomyDogs!

The Durham Food Hall is slated to open at the beginning of 2019 with 10 vendors in its 15,000-square-foot space on the ground floor of the Liberty Warehouse apartment complex, next door to the Durham Farmers Market. The food hall will also offer two bars and two private event spaces. Boxcar Bar + Arcade is on track to open its third location (first in Durham) at 621 Foster St. in early 2019.

Whether you’re a fan of opera or experimental metal, our city offers plenty of options for your next night out. Bonus: There’s lots of good food to eat after you rock out.

DPAC hosts more than 200 performances a year (more than 2,000 in its existence) including touring Broadway productions, high-profile concerts and comedy events and family shows.

ur area is home to impressive retailers, forwardlooking startups and a host of social enterprises. In July 2018, Durham was named the No. 7 best-run U.S. city by a WalletHub’s study. Researchers compared the 150 largest U.S. cities and based their rankings on operating efficiency measured against the city’s total per capita budget. WalletHub also named Durham the No. 5 best large city to start a business. And WalletHub isn’t the only one paying attention. Forbes named the city the No. 13 best place for business and careers, MSN found us to be the No. 16 city in the country with the highest-paying jobs and Livability named us one of five tech hot spots in the nation. When it comes to the gender wage gap, an Equities.com article recently touted that “in the city of Durham, women actually make more money than men, on average. Their salaries are 101% of their male counterparts, making this one of the only places in the U.S. to truly provide pay equity for women.” In fact, Forbes named Duke University one of the best employers for women. Several new developments in downtown, including the 27-story One City Center, have helped produce continuous growth and desire to live and work in the area. Class-A office occupancy rate is at 98% downtown, and more than 18,500 employees work in downtown alone. Many of them work at one of the more than 300 startups. Along those lines, the startup incubator and one of 10 Google 94 2019 DURHAM MAGAZINE VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE

It’s also created more than 3,000 jobs since 2014. The fact is that more and more companies are looking to have their businesses based in Durham. And there are also a good many who believed in the promise of Durham before it became buzzworthyand have chosen to stay. We spoke with the heads of one such company, Engine Brandmakers, who have developed the look and brand for many well-known Durham institutions:

Why did you choose to have your company based in Durham? DOMENICK RELLA, CREATIVE DIRECTOR I founded this company as Rella:Cowen in 2002. In 2012, we rebranded to Engine Brandmakers because we figured,“Ok, that’s what we do for a living – actually help people make brands.” Then my previous partner [left] to become a therapist. [She and I made the decision to be in Durham] almost 15 years ago. I live in Durham, and she was living in West Raleigh. We looked in the [Research Triangle] Park; we looked near the airport.

had been here for a while, and it seemed to us that there was an opportunity here. This was before any of this construction was going on, and a lot of these buildings didn’t even exist. There was also a space opening up on the 14th floor of this building [Durham Centre] because it was half empty. The rent was reasonably priced, and so we said,“With this view, yeah, sure. We’ll be in downtown Durham.” We liked it. And back then, there was maybe one deli that was within this downtown loop. ... There was nothing. We chose Durham partially for geographic reasons, but we also thought the potential for Durham was so amazing. What about the city drives your passion? DOM There’s a lot of energy. One thing that I’ve always liked about Durham was that ... there’s a lot of diverse voices and a cool blend of working class, old tobacco and a new wave of creativity. There’s such a pride, too, about Durham that I don’t know if I’ve seen in other parts of the Triangle. I certainly saw it happening 10 years ago, and I think that’s just very energizing. The city is changing almost daily – what’s your vision for Durham’s future? ROD BROWN, PRESIDENT & ACCOUNT DIRECTOR It’s going to keep going. Durham’s future is really, really bright. We’ve watched over the last five years apartments come up from dirt. We’re watching new restaurants open all the time, and everything is crowded all the time, especially on the weekends downtown. Things are just packed. DOM We firmly believed early on, especially 11 or 12 years ago

when we were working with our first brand – Durham Chamber of Commerce, which is right next door – that there’s a lot of people in Durham who really have the energy and the vision to push this city forward. This was before American Tobacco was in town, Jim Goodmon with Capitol Broadcasting, Durham Bulls Athletic Park – that was the first thing in ’95 that was built, but Durham needed to have some sort of push, and when we had the chance to work on the Chamber of Commerce’s brand, we knew that we needed to create something that was going to be outward-looking, fresh and timeless. That was why we created what we did. The same thing with [our other clients], Durham County, Durham Public Schools, Durham Technical Community College ... that was very important to continue to do that. N.C. Central University is the latest one we’ve worked on and to me, that’s critical within Durham. [It] has to look different and contemporary. We hope to be a part of that process looking forward.

n 2018, WalletHub recognized the Durham-Chapel Hill area as the No. 4 most educated city in the U.S. And in 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey showed that 47.3% of the city (25 years and older) holds bachelor’s degrees or higher. The presence of universities tends to drive up educational attainment in an area, and we’ve got quite a few. Here’s a quick look at our city’s institutions of higher learning.
The historically black university was founded in 1910 and offers bachelor’s degrees in more than 60 fields of study and graduate degrees in more than 40 disciplines. It has attracted attention for its biotechnology institute, which collaborates with pharmacy and biotech companies in Research Triangle Park (RTP). Flagship programs include the sciences, technology, nursing, education, law, business and the arts. NCCU elected Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye as its 12th chancellor in June 2017. He previously served as acting chancellor and interim chancellor for NCCU. In that time, Dr. Akinleye created new partnerships with community colleges, an online distance-education program, NCCU Online, and implemented a new security strategy on campus.

OUR TOP DENTISTS
A LITTLE BACKGROUND
or the ninth straight year, Durham Magazine commissioned a peer-to-peer survey of the local dental community – from endodontists to prosthodontists. The following rankings are the result. Dentists were asked the telling question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to, other than yourself?” Durham is well-served by the dental community. Hundreds of dentists, specialists and support professionals have made this area their home, and the overall quality of dental care in our communities is second to none. What good dentist wouldn’t want to practice here?

WHY I RETIRED HERE Produced by Holly West, Jessica Stringer, Kethan Fadale and Kristi Piechnik
here are many reasons why you might consider our area as you search for retirement options: our wellrounded quality of life, mild climate, renowned dining, robust arts scene, continuing education programs and top-rated health care are just a few. This year, the Durham and Raleigh area was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the No. 15 best place to retire in the country, and one of the 10 best places to retire in the South. In 2017, Durham was recognized by Condé Nast Traveler Editor Mark
Ellwood as the No. 5 destination in the U.S. to spend your golden years for many of the reasons listed above. And we have a large number of retirement communities that strike the perfect balance between offering first-rate care and promoting independence. We asked a few folks to share the reasons they chose to spend their golden years here and – since we know navigating the many pricing and contract options can be overwhelming – we also put together a guide to the area’s best retirement centers and 55+ communities. 2019 DURHAM MAGAZINE VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE 127
– USHA GULATI, FOREST AT DUKE “Before coming here, I was a professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Twin Lakes brought me and my wife, Mariana, to the Triangle in the fall of 2014. We decided that we wanted to move to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), and we visited probably 25 CCRCs in California, North Carolina and Virginia, where we lived before we moved to California. Mariana is a native North Carolinian, and we’ve had a house on the Outer Banks, so we “There are art groups, photography groups; there are so many things that you could never say spend a lot of time in North Carolina anyway. there’s nothing to do,” says Mariana Brook, here with her husband, Doug, at their Twin Lakes We had a complicated decision tree that home. “Everybody we talk to around here loves it.” we designed to evaluate all of the different CCRCs that we were going to. In order for anything to be on our We built a community at Twin Lakes really fast. You can sit down list, it had to have independent living, skilled nursing, physical next to anyone at Twin Lakes and start a conversation and enjoy it therapy, memory care and assisted living – Twin Lakes has all of and learn something. We’ve just really enjoyed the people here, and those. The second criteria was that it had to be a Medicare-evaluated that’s been a real pleasant surprise for us. And we’re just a couple of 4-star or 5-star facility; Twin Lakes was a 5-star facility. Those were hours from the mountains, a couple of hours from the beach, and necessary. And then it was subjective things like what the campus there’s just everything that we want here. We were just remarking looked like, what the houses were like, what kind of activities were this morning – our doctors are eight minutes away, there’s an available, but the real deciding factor here for us was that every time emergency room eight minutes away if we need it. There’s every kind we talked to someone on the staff here about Twin Lakes and its of service here, so it’s not a difficult place to live at all.” philosophy, they found some way to say to us, ‘We will take care of – DOUG BROOK, TWIN LAKES you. We’re here to take care of you.’

“My reason [for moving to Forest at Duke] was a medical reason. I had to have a knee surgery, and I found out about this place. My husband, Umesh, wouldn’t have to drive to a nursing home somewhere else (we’ve lived in Durham 16 years). So we decided to come and live [here]. There’s a rehab downstairs. My husband had heart surgery and came to the Forest for recovery, which made my visits easier. When we came here, everybody we met was very friendly, very laid-back. It seemed like a nice place to be. I’m on two different committees: food and marketing. I have good relationships with the staff. You can get involved as much as you want to. If you don’t want to, you have your own space. I have the best of two worlds: the built-in community to enjoy and my own place to be just with myself when I want to.”
