American Underground wins the Champion Award for Best Redevelopment Project.
The American Underground launched in the fall of 2010, serving as a hub for startups. The American Underground hails itself as “an entrepreneur’s dream — offering a unique mix of world class amenities and clustered resources positioned in the heart of one of the nation’s best places to live and work.”
Located in the lower level of the Strickland and Crowe buildings on the American Tobacco campus, the American Underground occupies over 26,000 square feet.
Winners took home honors in 15 categories, “representing the top leadership of the Triangle’s commercial real estate industry, as well as the best development projects and programs of the year.”
