Activating City Center one storefront at a time.

In our ever expanding city, we have seen each district develop its own personality. City Center is beginning to lay groundwork for their own identity, and Open Spaces will ideally aid in its revival and sustainability as a destination. Once completed, Open Spaces windows will create a bridge between the Southside and Riverfront allowing people to move through the district in an inviting and comfortable setting.
