Davidson College driving new project on Delburg St

Delburg Street has seen a lot if activity in recent years and that activity looks to continue.

Starting with the "pocket neighborhood" being built by John Marshall Homes - the firm owned by Davidson Commissioner Rodney Graham and continuing with most of the old mill houses being replaced by new homes, the area has seen a good bit of change.

Now Davidson College has proposed a project at 210 Delburg focused on some non-residential uses.  According to info on the town website "the proposed floor plans and building design indicates five small business incubator spaces along with common areas for congregation."

When asked for a little more detail in the project Jay Pfeifer with Davidson College offered the following:

"210 Delburg is an exciting opportunity for Davidson College and I expect to have more detailed information to share later in the academic year. The college is in the process of evaluating the best way to leverage the building’s unique location and design.

The work being done on the site right now is intended only to stabilize the building’s core and infrastructure."

An intro to the project will be presented by ADW Architects at the upcoming Design Review Board meeting on August 17th.  One of the principals at ADW is Bob Lauer of Davidson.  Lauer also serves as the current Chair of the DRB.
