Saint Group of Companies – Custom Home Builder in Vancouver, BC

For this month’s newsletter, we wanted to shift our “Featured Project” section, to showcase Saint Group of Companies.

We are excited to collaborate with Saint Group of Companies to create this beautiful, modernist-inspired mixed-use development in this unique neighborhood of East Vancouver. The residential component aims to create density with enhanced livability that will hopefully inspire future neighborhood developments.

As the new home of Saint Group, it is important to us that the office space reflects their friendly and professional approach to business by creating a space that equally suits work and gathering.
