We had a great time welcoming old and new friends, and industry colleagues to our dys Victoria open house last month. Though we've been settling into our historic Market Square office for almost a year now, we were excited to officially open our doors to welcome folks from the Victoria development community and show off our new digs. Thanks to everyone who came through--we're glad to be a part of the community and looking forward to working together!
