Downtown Durham –
it’s our neighborhood.
And this is Pleiades Modern.
Premium features designed in every home
Pleiades is more than just a set of new houses in Downtown Durham – it’s a neighborhood, and any great neighborhood shares some common features. When we designed Pleiades, we envisioned a central green space as a place for neighbors to gather, stretch out and relax. We committed ourselves to incorporating common-sense energy efficient building and design principles. And, we aimed to create modernist, light-filled, comfortable homes that were easily walk-able and bike-able to many of Durham’s treasures.
Inspired by the stars
We named this pocket neighborhood of nine homes Pleiades (PLEE-uh-deez) after the luminous cluster of nine stars in the constellation Taurus to highlight it as a new, shining addition to our beloved “Bull City’s” evolving fabric. This is Pleiades Modern.
Luminous Open Spaces
Through the extensive use of glass and great design we’ve created living spaces that connect residents with the sun’s light during the day and with the city at night in a way that simultaneously energizes and refreshes. Skylights illuminate stairwells and flood interior spaces with light. Large sliding glass doors bring the outside in. Open floor plans add to a sense of volume and light. Stretch. Pause. Take a deep breath. This is your space.
Private Outdoor Living
Equally important to the draw of downtown is the ability to retreat into your own private spaces to entertain friends or connect with neighbors. Each home comes with its own private, fenced in yard and some even come with a private second floor terrace. Want to spread out? Meet your neighbors? Kick a ball with the kids? A central green space provides the opportunity for this pocket neighborhood to have its very own private park, fire pit and/or community garden.
Pleiades kitchens are the heart of your home. Modern chrome fixtures, custom cabinetry, tile back-splashes, stainless steel appliances, and quartz or granite counters make cooking and dining a treat. Spacious center islands with mitered waterfall counters offer both a casual place to dine and an impressive place to entertain. Private decks and courtyards may host your outdoor kitchen and extend mealtime outdoors
Earth Smart, Energy Savvy
Common sense energy efficiency applied here. Save on gas and mileage by walking or biking around downtown. Reduce your energy bills by living in a home built to ENERGY STAR standards. Natural light, spray foam insulation, sealed crawl space, dual zone HVAC, and tankless water heaters are standard. Want to take advantage of that Carolina blue sky? These homes are pre-wired for solar panels with option for discounted installation with Yes Solar Solutions.
Embrace your Neighborhood.
Pleiades is simply part of the larger whole that is Downtown Durham. Living here, you would be within a short walk or bike ride to some of the best restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, parks and entertainment that Durham has to offer.

Saltbox Seafood Joint
Featured in Travel & Leisure, Garden & Gun, Southern Loving, The Local Palate, Saveur and more, SALTBOX Seafood Joint, is a small chef crafted seafood stand located in the historic Little Five Points neighborhood. Inspired by the classic American fish camps and waterside seafood shacks, the SALTBOX cooks up seasonal, sustainable, fresh seafood that is delivered fresh from the Carolina coast. Open most days “until the fish is sold out,” you’ll be willing to stand in line to enjoy the daily catch before it’s gone!
Oak City Cycling & Greenways
Raleigh’s active residents cannot overstate their appreciation for our city’s greenway system. The paved and protected trails are vastly extended and connected. From 10Arros you’ll be able to connect with Chavis Park or Crabtree Creek greenways which connect to Umstead Park or the ultimate 33-mile Neuse River Trail. Bike clubs are numerous and the folks at Oak City Cycling keep us spinning. Tell Dave we said Hello!
