One of the offerings is two A/V equipped teleconferencing private offices set up for online meetings and presentations. The design goal was to create a space using materials that feel in tune with the area’s history but not too literal an interpretation, something more modern in its reference. Utilizing reclaimed, repurposed, and textural materials and furniture adds a warmth and character to the space while also adding durability. Concrete, stone, and quartz adds balance to the textural.

The co-working spaces are well equipped to allow anyone working from home an area that is outside of their unit and the game and media lounge are used often for watch parties, and other events. The leasing staff does a great job activating these spaces for resident use. The dog park and resort style pool, courtyard, and BBQ areas are programmed and designed to maximize use and allow them to appeal to all residents. The Texas sun can be quite harsh so strategic shade was incorporated to give those spaces the best use year round.
