Interested in old places and new spaces? Originally constructed in 1948, The Chesterfield served as a cigarette manufacturing factory for the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company. Vacant since 1999, the building was redeveloped in 2017 to become a home of innovation and a new hub of life science and technology. Come learn about the building history, redevelopment goals, and tour the completed structure with project architect, Bill Gaudreau, AIA of Gaudreau Inc. architects and planners, and senior director of development, Justin Parker of Wexford Science and Technologies.

 

Originally constructed in 1948, The Chesterfield served as a cigarette manufacturing factory for the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company. This prominent building is located in downtown Durham’s Brightleaf District, a vibrant area featuring restaurants, retail, entertainment and housing. Vacant since 1999, the Chesterfield was redeveloped in 2017 to become a home of innovation and a new hub of life science and technology. The 286,000 sf building is now home to a mix of laboratory and office tenants including Duke University, Durham Tech, Validic, Nutanix, Microsoft, and Biolabs North Carolina (the “American Underground” of life science).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will identify design strategies for the successful adaptive use of an existing building as a code compliant and functional multi-use center including retail and laboratory uses.
  2. Summarize Historic Tax Credit requirements and restrictions relevant to adaptive use of the building.
  3. Discuss and discover the design team's consideration of contextualism, interior and exterior space planning, and urban design.
  4. Describe the coordination of the design team and build team through planning and execution
