Note: Vertical Edge can be hard to find for the first time (have their #[masked] handy in case you get lost), if you're coming on us-70 west then look for the neon piano sign shaped like a grand piano on the right, you'll see a white building to your left. Take the next left and do a U-Turn back to that building and take a right into the parking lot. Drive straight through the parking lot towards the back of the building and the Vertical Edge will be to your right at the back of the (former) Kawasaki building.
If you have a GPS: 1800 Sanders Ave, Durham should take you right to the location of the U-turn in the directions above.
Google street view of the intersection is helpful:
