20 New Trees in the Midway!

Originally the building at 700 Raymond had two trees in front, and a box elder tree in the back, now the building will have an assortment of around 20 trees - maples, birch, honey locust and crab apples. In addition to a storm water pond and a variety of bushes and flowers will be planted. And of course, no ash trees!

Update Company is proud to have established over 70 trees at the dozen or so buildings we have developed. Our tenants love the beautiful flower planters at Midtown Commons.

Oldtimers (like me) remember when there was no grass in the MidCity (Raymond & University) area, except for occaisional weeds. We are excited to see other developments like the Carleton Lofts adding green to the area.

Take a walk or bike ride down to 700 Raymond and see watch our new building grow!

Welcome to Sierra Club

We recently completed a beautiful sunny office for the Sierra Club at 2300 Myrtle Avenue and  we are excited to add them to our campus!   This nationwide organization was established in 1892.   They work tirelessly to protect the earth. The Sierra Club's mission is "To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives."
