Our commercial work is at the heart of our commitment to being connected to the communities where we build.

This open, welcoming landscaped area acts as the main circulation system of the building while also creating a natural sense of community. The entrance to the building's interior and businesses is intentionally understated from Sandy Blvd., and the winding path ensures that there are no direct sight lines from the public right of way.
