Bullington WareHouse

The Bullington Warehouse, at Duke and Corporation streets across from the Durham School of the Arts, was built in 1927. The last of Durham's distinctive brick tobacco warehouses, its restrained ornamentation reflects a change in tastes and in tobacco processing techniques, from the earlier Romanesque Revival tobacco buildings in the Liggett and Myers and American Tobacco complexes.

As Liggett and Myers scaled its operations back in the 1980s due to the company having difficulty competing with rival cigarette manufacturers, the Bullington was remodeled into residential condominiums. This condominium complex has some of the earliest in central Durham, and foreshadowing the Liggett and Myers complex’s later redevelopment as West Village.
