These activity centers are intended for locations where arterials and four lane collectors and mass transit service are available, providing access to other metropolitan areas. ORB provided construction administration services for the civil, traffic and landscape architecture design for the development of approximately 368 apartments with structured parking and amenities on a ±5 acre parcel.
