The Progression of Our Core: The People
2019 was a busy year for us. We turned 30 years old and completed projects such as Golf Pride’s Corporate Headquarters, Solis Brightleaf, Draper Place, and Meeting Street Lofts. It was so busy that we had to hire more talented team members to help us continue building and designing award-winning projects for our amazing clients. This year alone, we hired 23 new employees across both our Raleigh and Charlotte offices. If we want to get into specifics, we hired the following to our constantly growing team : 2 Project Architects, 1 Project Designer, 1 Landscape Architect, 1 Interiors Senior Project Manager, 1 Senior Interior Designer, 1 Project Manager, 9 Designers, 2 Interior Designers, 1 Systems Administrator, 2 Design Interns and 2 Interior Design Interns.

The Town of Cary is seeing unprecedented growth. It’s consistently ranked as one of the best places to raise a family, retire and start a business. With over 163,000 residents and long list of accolades, the Town of Cary continues to transform, keeping up with their diverse population. One of those transformations is the Academy Park project. In the heart of downtown Cary, this development is comprised of 102,000-square-feet of office, 34,000-square-feet of retail and 153 residential units wrapping three sides of a 600-space parking deck shared with the new Cary Regional Library, Cary Arts Center and Downtown Cary Park.
