Hill Building at American Tobacco

Hill Building at American Tobacco, Durham, NC

Renovation and adaptive reuse of the 64,200 SF Hill Building in the American Tobacco Historic District of Durham included nearly a complete reconstruction of the floor and roof framing and upgrade of the structure to meet current wind and seismic loads. In most cases the building was reframed with re-graded and salvaged timber. New amenities included the addition of skylights and a 10,700 SF mezzanine. The structure was adapted to a single tenant office building.
