Themed the ‘Birth of a City’, the community design is a nod to the mill workers, carpenters, electricians, masons, and other tradespeople that built the neighborhood. Residents will experience a modern yet timeless design. The gritty but innovative atmosphere can be seen in the art program as well as in the textures and materials selected in the furniture and accessories which include wood tones, brick veneer along entrances, copper accents, classic light fixtures, and more.
