The flexible indoor-outdoor opportunities afforded by our top floor location with adjacent terrace space will also allow us to engage daily with the climate and environment that makes San Diego a special place to work, live and play.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Harley Ellis Deveraux Corp. to AMP&RSAND, an amenity-rich property with indoor/outdoor connectivity helping tenants foster employee health, happiness and build culture,” says Hulse.
“AMPR&SAND offers a high quality and wonderfully amenitized workplace in a healthy and creative setting that will enable HED’s employees to connect, do their best work and thrive,” adds Reno.
