Merge CV

Merge is a mixed-use project that serves as a contemporary neighborhood center, complementing its surrounding community while emphasizing walkability and neighborhood scale development. The project consists 16,000 SF of second floor Class A Office space, and 16,500 SF of ground floor commercial/retail/restaurant space oriented around large patios and breezeways that link to surrounding public sidewalks.
Merge is stepped away and segregated from the street with lush landscaping. Warmly hued natural woods, stone, porcelain tile and stucco impart a calm and inviting presence, while an open plan and high vaulted ceilings provide natural light and cross ventilation throughout. Merge’s subterranean parking structure supplements on-grade parking with a total of 150 spaces. Merge’s fresh new take on the workplace includes polished concrete floors, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors and massive patio spaces that create collaborative work environments designed for an array of indoor/outdoor arrangements to accommodate meetings of various sizes, levels of privacy and duration.
