“I’ve worked with Walt Brown Jr. and Diversified Partners for several years, and they have always been sensitive to my requests in an effort to make every development better,” said Glendale Vice Mayor Joyce Clark. “I’m delighted to be here today to welcome yet another project by this amazing group. This development shows that Glendale is not just focused on the new frontier, the 303 and Westgate, but our focus is on making sure our infill partners are taken care of as well.” 


The ownership group comprises NRM Group LLC in conjunction with Diversified Partners. MCG Architecture will serve as the project's architecture firm, Foursite Development will lead construction management and BPR Companies LLC will serve as the general contractor on the project.

Our commitment to growth and innovation, supported by the staff of the City of Glendale and Vice Mayor Joyce Clark, has brought us to this joyous day.
