Life in Research Triangle Park is always exciting, and as the area develops, Trinity Commons at Erwin finds itself welcoming new establishments to the local community almost weekly. Here are some of the best up-and-coming or newly opened spots that we’re looking forward to visiting in the coming months.
- New Lodging
Do you have friends or family coming to visit? While your apartment may have enough room to host them, you might find that they want their own space. In October, a new 123-room AC Hotel by Marriott is scheduled to open, and the Hyatt Place Chapel Hill/Southern Village will be providing 110 additional guest rooms in April. With hotels joining Norhtside and the Southern Village, you’ll have a couple of great new options.
- New Arts Venue
In August the Core@Carolina Square will open, bringing a new theater space and arts innovation lab to the Triangle. The 4,000 square-foot black box theater will be a great place for local artists to perform, and it will also include a rehearsal studio and arts innovation lab. The Core@Carolina Square facility will be home to the Arts@The Core Initiative.
- Healthy Fast Food
Carolina Square will be welcoming b.good, a fast food option designed to serve fresh and homemade options fast. With locally-raised and house-ground burgers paired with hand-cut fries and all-natural shakes, this is fast food done right. If you need to eat a little lighter, consider a kale and grain bowl or fresh salad.
- Attractive Event Space
Hosting a wedding or special event this year? Try The Barn at Chapel Hill for your venue. This facility features a barn built in 1864 and carefully relocated to Chapel Hill this year. Original beams add character to the space, and it’s going to be large enough to host farm events as well as weddings and other event options.
- A New Bakery
Chapel Hill welcomed the Guglhupf bakery in April of this year. Here you’ll find everything from fresh brewed coffee to delectable baked goods, and specialty orders will be possible. Order up your next birthday cake from this new hot spot!
As you can see, the Triangle is growing and expanding. You can be part of it too with a new luxury apartment at Trinity Commons!
