    Shortly after purchasing "The Courtyard of Chapel Hill", a two-day visit to Paris was made for ideas to incorporate certain elements of this beautiful European city into the redevelopment of this mixed-use retail/office property located in the heart of Downtown Chapel Hill, NC. The montage is set to U2's "City of Blinding Lights", which is appropo because Paris has long been known as "La Ville-Lumière", or "The City of Light". This nickname refers to its fame as the epicenter for creative thinking during the "Age of Enlightenment" (much of the 18th century), which cultivated significant achievements in Science, Philosophy and the Arts.
