We have four basic floor plans to choose from, which offer a wide range of options and prices for the educated buyer. However, we also offer a high level of modifications within those plans allowing a home-buyer to customize and personalize their home within the design guidelines of the overall development. The corner buildings will offer upper level residences above street level office/retail space. Thus providing further live/work opportunities . The designs for the street level spaces are also open for customizing .
