Shaded by mature Live Oaks, the 900 S 1st development is anchored by a remarkable central plaza that serves as the hub of activity for residents and visitors alike.

This sunken plaza protects the existing Heritage Oaks while allowing visitors to meet up in the plaza, eat on the restaurant deck, or relax quietly in thoughtfully designed nodes with seating, tables and lush landscaping. The 900 S. 1st Street mixed-use development combines 63 modern residences, generous public, retail and boutique work spaces, all of which are nestled sensitively into the existing fabric of the historic Bouldin Creek neighborhood and the vibrant South First District. Residents can enjoy the exclusive use of an outdoor lounge and grill deck surrounded by green roofs, while visitors enjoy co-working spaces along with proposed restaurants and wellness facilities on the ground floor plaza.
