Philip Beesley

We believe that dreaming is part of living. It shapes creative, confident lives and vibrant communities.

This belief is why we are guided by our slogan “Building more than real estate” and why we will be installing a piece of “living architecture”, created by UW School of Architecture faculty member Philip Beesley at Gaslight Square in the spring of 2019. We are committed to helping build the future where today’s young dreamers become inventors and visionaries.

The artwork, titled “Dreaming River”, is an example of STEAM (science, technology, engineering,art and math) in action - illustrating harmony between technology, nature and human expression.

Visit Gaslight Square in the spring of 2019 – it will change the way we dream of our future.
