927 Central Avenue

The owner of this project had the creative vision to see potential in an old auto service and inspection station. Situated on a triangular site at the intersection of not two, but three heavily traveled streets, the location was converted to a studio that incorporates an original mural on the building and a newly added decorative wall, together with an urban evergreen and perennial garden.

The site, previously covered in its entirety with asphalt, now incorporates non-impervious surfaces consisting of brick pavers for the ADA parking, a gravel lot for other vehicles, and an urban evergreen and perennial garden.

2907 Freedom Drive

The Shops at Freedom represent an important retail center on the Freedom Drive corridor that was in need of a facelift. The new parapet and masonry columns, among other improvements, have made a long-lasting and positive impact to the business district and surrounding residential communities, providing a more enjoyable shopping and working experience for both the businesses operating from the center and the community they serve.
