Last week, members of The Preston Partnership project team for Azure attended the Hines’ VIP Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting. The festivities included live music, a tour of the community, a human sushi bar, and a silent auction benefitting the Paralyzed Veterans of America. The luxury garden style community is located in St. Petersburg’s exclusive Carillion Park.
The chic, coastal, four-story apartment community houses 308 apartment units, available in one, two and three bedroom floor plans. Entering the community, guests are led seamlessly through the welcome center, clubhouse, and fitness center into to the open amenity courtyard and resort-style pool. Noteworthy amenities include club room with billiards and shuffle board, internet café, training studio, electrical car charging stations, Bark Park , outdoor kitchen, garages, USB connections in every apartment, and a playground that caters to family-oriented activities.
Check out some of our photos of the event.

TPP Snowjam 2014!
While many of their fellow employees were stuck in traffic for hours trying to get home in unprecedented icy traffic congestion, 20 of our dedicated employees remained at the office finishing up deadlines and ended up stranded overnight.
They started off the evening with good cheer at Taco Mac (thank goodness for walkable neighborhoods!).
Back at the office they had some essential supplies to help get them through the rough evening…
Finally, they hunkered down with couch cushions and jackets for the night.
Early this morning, they were up and back to work! Not sure if they’ll be able to get home today or not. Fortunately, Super Target is open and walkable for any needed supplies and the building management at The Terraces has been very helpful. They’ve opened up showers at the health club and offered assistance wherever possible.
In keeping good cheer, see the lower left corner of this image for a lovely parking deck snow angel made by one of our own!

On November 7th, The Preston Partnership participated in SDA’s annual Canstruction competition. Every year, teams of architects, engineers, developers, and students work together to design and build some really creative 3D structures. However, these designs aren’t built out of concrete – they’re made entirely out of cans of food! At the end of the competition, all of the food used to build the structures is donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. It took months of volunteer time, hard work, design tweaks, and heavy lifting for the TPP team to complete the project, but it was well worth it for everyone involved.
Let the build begin!
