American Tobacco & the Bulls: Making Headlines about Expansion, Cabin Tours & History

Both of CBC’s Durham entities are making headlines this summer.  The American Tobacco recently began talking expansion, Burt’s Bees will be giving tours of Burt’s Cabin – on the ATC campus – for two days in June, and WUNC conducted an interview with an author who’s written about the history of the Bulls.  Here’s the scoop:

American Tobacco held its first public meetings about the potential expansion of the campus into the adjacent University Ford property last week.  ATC Development Director Mark Stanford told the Triangle Business Journal that CBC “wanted to hold public forums because of “the city and county’s investments in the original American Tobacco project” and emphasized that the options for the site are still wide-open.  Planning is in the early stages.
