August 5, 2016

At last month’s City Council hearing, a group of residents at 3030 Bryan and the condos on Live Oak objected to the planned building height.

Since then, Greystar has redesigned the building to accommodate thoseRead more

There are neighborhood leaders from multiple properties in Bryan PlaceRead more
