Cat's Cradle to Durham?

Posted by on Thu, Sep 18, 2008 at 11:24 AM

A friend of the Triangulator this morning hipped us to a bit of news that came out of Tuesday's Carrboro Board of Alderman meeting.

From Wednesday's News & Observer report:

A developer proposing the renovation of the nightclub's East Main Street shopping center urged the Carrboro Board of Aldermen to approve the project Tuesday night, saying any further delay could send Cradle owner Frank Heath packing.

"It's absolutely an integral part of our project," Laura Van Sant said in an interview Wednesday. "It is a fact he has landlords in Durham offering him free space."

In a email statement to the N&O, Heath explained that while he's been getting inquiries about relocating the Cradle for some time, the Durham related offers were "more along the lines of booking shows elsewhere than a space of his own elsewhere."

But with the $50 million expansion of the club's Main Street home still in the air, speculation abounds as to where the historic music venue will actually end up.

Could Durham make a short list of candidates?

The city has no shortage of large, empty spaces for Heath to choose from should the deal, which would double the Cradle’s 6,700-square-foot interior, fall through.

Bull City Rising has a breakdown of possible sites.

Keep your fingers crossed, Durham audiophiles.
