November 2017 Tenant News:
Green Building Tours, Holiday Closures, Fall Colors



As mentioned last month, we will conduct at least two green building tours for you, our tenants. You’re also welcome to bring a friend or family member.

To come along, just meet Erick and me in the front lobby at these times:

  • Monday, Nov. 27, 2 pm
  • Tuesday, Nov. 28, Noon

Tours take about half an hour. If there’s enough demand for a third date, we’ll try to find another one in the near future.

– Chris Mohr, Executive Director
