A fully restored Golden Belt Campus – one of Durham’s last historic textile mills to be creatively reused – draws a captivating energy to downtown. Home to businesses such as Strata Solar, WillowTree, MetaMetrics, Cotton Room and Pairwise, GBC has transformed a piece of Durham’s industrial past into a vital hub where people live, create, and work. With over 350,000 SF of residential and Class-A commercial space, GBC combines a vibrant local arts community, airy loft living, and modern offices in a historic setting, while also saving space for fun. This project has become recognized for its lively community with features that embrace the urban industrial aesthetic. Explore an art gallery show, enjoy a beer and games at Hi-Wire Brewing, or check out a concert at the Mill Stage. GBC is the go-to, must-have place for creative pursuits, cultural events and a hip lifestyle allowing companies to capture and retain the best and brightest. We invite you to join us in growing downtown Durham’s vibrant community at Golden Belt Campus.
