Located on a central site in the iconic 78704 zip code, 1400 South Congress creates a unique live/work destination within this dynamic and vibrant community. What began as a conversion from an existing used car dealership to an eclectic retail center, expanded to include a sophisticated condominium building, local retail, offices, structured parking and restaurants with outdoor dining.

The site plan adds vitality along South Congress Avenue while preserving a large open public space around the existing Live Oaks. The central walkway, highlighted by a graceful sweeping trellis, brings people into the site to the smaller retail spaces. While utilizing a rich palette of terra cotta blocks, glass, wood, and “paint grip” metal siding, this mindfully planned urban community was designed with an environmental consciousness and a timeless aesthetic. This block has become a pivotal locale within bustling SoCo.
