The Measurement Building

Morris Ridge is a mixed-use development offering premier retail, Class A office space, and high-end residences uniquely located adjacent to the Historic Durham Athletic Park and the Durham Central Park. Phase I includes the Measurement Building, a Class A office building with ground level retail.

Years of team programming and planning efforts by the team of Measurement Inc., their real estate arm Measurement Durham, Hoke/New Vision Architects, Civil Consultants and Choate Construction have resulted in the mixed-use Measurement Building. The Measurement Building thrusts Durham’s downtown redevelopment effort to the north of the city center, comprising the first phase of the multi-building Morris Ridge area of downtown.

The Measurement Building is a five-story mixed use building, including 65,950 SF of Class A office space above 13,100 SF of prime street-level retail space. In addition to these areas, a 12,100-SF below-grade parking garage is included. The building’s design highlights classic urban Durham architecture with the use of brick and precast details which integrate this building within the long-standing Morris Ridge business neighborhood. While structurally a single building, the building’s Hunt Street fa├žade integrates three separate styles which emulate three separate buildings constructed side-by-side. Classic brick arches with keystones frame the second floor windows on the main building section and classic awnings cover the street-level retail storefronts.

This building anchors the northeast corner of Morris and Hunt Streets and serves as the springboard for future Morris Ridge mixed use development and further enhances the overall redevelopment efforts in this north area of downtown Durham.

After the successful construction of the six-story Measurement Building mixed-use facility, Choate is again selected to perform the interior upfit of the space. The buildout features a mix of open office area, enclosed offices, and conference rooms.

Situated adjacent to Durham Central Park and within walking distance of Downtown restaurants and shopping, the employees of Measurement Inc. will enjoy all the amenities of Durham’s downtown atmosphere.
