DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Duda|Paine Architects, a premier international design firm, announces the topping-out of the new Class-A office project, The Roxboro at Venable, on February 25, 2021. The 8-story office and life sciences center sits in the heart of downtown Durham in the mixed-use Venable Center being developed by Trinity Capital Advisors and SLI Capital.
The design offers features that accommodate life sciences companies including tall floor-to-floor heights, built-in accommodation for lab infrastructure and addition of dedicated back-up power. Nestled in a new landscaped central courtyard in the Venable Center in downtown Durham, the design includes touchless entry and elevator systems, air purification systems in elevators, and open-air sky terraces on the two upper floors.
“The modern design of the Roxboro at Venable respects the area’s historic context,” says Russ Holcomb, Principal, Duda|Paine Architects, “It includes features to meet the growing need for space that can easily accommodate today’s life science enterprises as well as more traditional Class A office needs.”
“We’ve worked hard with our partners to design and develop a building that complements Venable’s existing historic buildings while offering the modern design, flexibility, and amenities that innovative, growing companies need,” said Jeff Sheehan, Partner, Trinity Capital Advisors.
