East Garrison moving forward!

The East Garrison project is an adaptive reuse of a historic district on the former Ft. Ord military base in Monterey County, California. The pedestrian-friendly development will include 1400 homes, a town center and an arts district. The new town is growing at a great clip and building can’t keep up with demand for houses in Phase II of the project. The Arts District will be built in Phase III. Our work with the County, the developer, and Artspace Projects, Inc. continues.
