Alpha-Square-Renderings-san-diego

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Bob McElroy and Amy Gonyeau of Alpha Project and touring Alpha Square, the organization’s beautiful new development in East Village. Alpha Square, located on the corner of 14th Street and Market Street, is a six-story building with 203 studio apartments for previously homeless and low-income individuals in Downtown San Diego. Each of these studio apartments is furnished with Internet, cable TV, and telephone services, and the building itself includes on-site amenities including case management, long-term treatment facilities, and even a pizza shop! The $46 million development was a collaborative effort by The Alpha Project, San Diego Housing Commission, City of San Diego, Civic San Diego, and Chelsea Investment Corporation.

refinery29-new-york-office-spaces-we-love

One of my millennial staple websites is Refinery29 – it’s colorful, fun, creative, inspiring, and full of all things travel, fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment. Naturally I was very curious about what a company like Refinery29 would create in the space that it calls home. Few things get me more excited than when a company’s office fully captures the essence of its brand – and Refinery29’s chic space in Manhattan is one that does exactly that.

It is only fitting that TapHunter, one of San Diego’s most notable tech companies, has one of the coolest offices in the mecca for live-work-play, Downtown San Diego. TapHunter’s office is a modern, lofty, bright and creative collaboration hub for the company’s growing team of craft beer and coding enthusiasts. In the words of their leaders, “Our team is part hardworking beer connoisseurs, part innovative technologists and hard-core hunters that support local businesses and don’t settle for supporting common denominators and crappy ingredients.” Does it get much better than that?

When most people think of Quicken Loans, they think finance, mortgages, and credit scores. And if they tried to picture what Quicken Loans’ office space should look like, they probably think of traditional private offices, dropped ceilings, and building standard carpet.

Family Feud No More

Making Your Family Business Into a Competitive Advantage

I was a pretty good girl from the start. I got straight A’s in school. I went to bed early. I never went to a party or had a sip of alcohol. I refused to wear make-up until I was sixteen. My best friends were and still are my family, and there was no one else I would have rather spent time with growing up (that hasn’t changed either!)

It’s not every day that you see an AstroTurf track lining the halls of an office, but that’s the first thing you’ll notice when visiting Onefootball’s new headquarters in Berlin. (That’s football in the European sense – otherwise known as soccer to those of us in the U.S.) Given that Onefootball is “the best mobile football platform for fans around the world,” it’s only fitting that their space reflects the enthusiasm of the sporting world, in conjunction with clean lines and modern finishes fitting for a tech company.
