Best venue that doesn't exist 

Durham Fruit & Produce Company

305 South Dillard Street, Durham

The Durham Fruit & Produce Company has already hosted a number of notable shows, from Durham choreographer Nicola Bullock's Undone to Duke Performances artists like Mantra Percussion and the Rushes Ensemble. Imagine what the venue will do when it actually opens. The warehouse on Dillard Street, named for what it once was, has been undergoing renovations since 2014, when Tim Walter purchased it as a photography studio and venue. The official opening always seems to be a few months away, and the in-process personality of the space matches its mission and aesthetic. The building is composed of open-sided concrete cubes, and the plan is to maintain the utilitarian history of the warehouse within its design. When the renovations are finished, the Fruit will feature a black-box theater, a studio for large-scale installations, artist studios, and a wraparound porch. Walter says the programming will highlight diverse art experiences for its patrons, while providing emerging or experimental artists the opportunity to utilize the space at relatively low costs.
