New Apartments Coming To Central & Highland!!

The project is 266 units, 4 stories tall, with a hidden parking garage and construction time of about a year. Vedura will be widening Highland Ave. next to the site (yea!), and also building a Pierson Place monument marker at Central Ave. Many, many thanks to Vedura for helping with the monument, and we look forward to nurturing a great relationship with them.
