The major job announcements in the Triangle just keep on coming, this time in Durham. A Chinese biotech company will create 200 jobs in cancer research:

The Raleigh News and Observer is reporting that plans have been announced for another high rise for downtown Durham. The 27 story Novus tower features 188 apartment units and street level retail at 400 W. Main at its intersection with W. Chapel Hill and Morris Streets. The developer, Austin Lawerence Properties, which consists of a husband/wife team who graduated from Duke, are also responsible for the development of Durham's current tallest building, One City Center and the redevelopment of the old Jack Tar Hotel into the boutique Unscripted Hotel. The project will be built in phases, finishing up in late 2024. Phase One will be the residential tower; details on the second phase will be released next year.

Included in the plans for the tower are 54 luxury condominiums that will range in price from around $1.4 million to $3.4 million :shock: An early look at these condos can be found on Zillow. Over a third of the condos have already been reserved. Some of the project's offerings "to create a luxury resort feel" include a 25 meter outdoor pool in the deck overlooking the city with other amenities for its residents, like private cabanas, hot tubs, a plunge pool, a steam room and a massage room.

I'm hoping whatever Front Street Capital has planned for its building in the IQ comes to something like this in height & amenities.

Within a month, another tower in Durham has been proposed. The Triangle Business Journal is reporting on a 25-story luxury residential building. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2021/11/11/craig-davis-properties-plans-new-tower-in-durham.html

Not far from this is another mid-rise condo building under construction that is asking for $600/sf a unit. The Triangle, and Durham especially is headed into an affordability crisis at full speed. Looks like it has become a victim of it's own success.

From a 12/30 article in the TBJ: "Duke University has landed a federal contract worth nearly $365 million over seven years, if fully funded, to help vaccines reach people faster" and from the same article "The contract follows another sizable one the university landed in October 2019 to improve flu vaccine development. The university earned a multi-contract award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases worth up to potentially $400 million over seven years."

RTP has some incredible momentum to say the least!! An economic think tank just did a study ranking universities by their ability to commercialize their research. NC State was ranked #7 and Duke was #15 and they are on par with the best in this country and in the world. RTP has reached the point where they are in a position to give Silicon Valley, Boston, and Austin serious competition. We've watched the acceleration of that area and I really believe they have the economic presence to create their on ecosystem. Here is a quote from the article and the link is below:: "To rank the research universities that are excelling at creating new knowledge, a new analysis is measuring tech transfer—or the impact of the innovations that campuses share with the world and private industry. The first measure is whether universities are embedding that new knowledge in the graduates of their own science, technology, engineering and programs, according to the “Research to Renewal” report by Heartland Forward, an economic development nonprofit in the Midwest.

The analysis also looks at how commercializing research and infusing it into private industry can invigorate local economies and create jobs. “Research and discovery are fundamental objectives of universities, but they must be absorbed and infused into private industry to yield an economic return on the investment,” Ross DeVol, Heartland Forward’s CEO, says in the report. “We believe that states, cities and rural areas can more effectively partner with universities in their pursuit of prosperity.”

For formal commercialization and tech transfer of intellectual property, the rankings counted metrics such as invention disclosures, the number of licenses and options, licensing income and startups formed. Many of the top performers are considered elite institutions. But the No. 1 ranked university is one of the smaller schools and achieved its top score for leading an economic renaissance in its home city of Pittsburgh after the decline of the steel industry.


One of the public institutions in the top 10 made commercialization central to its mission and prioritized entrepreneurship. Another highly ranked public school has succeeded commercially in semiconductors and biotechnology. Other universities made the list for creating startups and offering low-risk deals to companies that buy their innovations.

Heartland Forward encourages universities to collaborate with federal, state and local leaders to target investment and resources to local economies that are most in need of revitalization. Universities should also consider developing new bachelor’s and graduate programs in partnership with local industry. “Every university has the potential to be actively engaged in technology transfer so that good ideas benefit the general public,” the report says.

The top 25 on the University Technology Transfer and Commercialization Index:

1 Carnegie Mellon University
2 University of Florida
3 Columbia University
4 Stanford University
5 Harvard University
6 University of Pennsylvania
7 North Carolina State University
8 University of California, San Diego
9 University of California, Los Angeles
10 University of Minnesota
11 Massachusetts Institute Technology
12 Purdue University
13 Northwestern University
14 Cornell University
15 Duke University
16 University of Michigan
17 New York University
18 University of Washington
19 California Institute of Technology
20 University of Texas at Austin
21 University of Pittsburgh
22 Princeton University
23 Brigham Young University
24 University of Chicago
25 University of California, Berkeley

“leading an economic renaissance in its home city of Pittsburgh after the decline of the steel industry” substitute Winston-Salem for Pittsburgh and tobacco for steel industry. But, even though Carnegie has numerous degree granting “locations” they do not seem to be full partners with a larger campus in another city or Carnegie did not merge, nay was acquired, by a bigger outfit (I know, it’s just the medical school).

To clear up your apples to oranges comparison, Carnegie-Mellon is a University, not a health care system...
