GRANITE ADVISORY SERVICES


Gables Residential recently completed a $200 million

project with Granite. Due to the extremely complex

nature of this project, it was imperative that we team with a

partner willing to listen to and understand our needs as well as

their own. Should another opportunity present itself, we would

definitely partner with Granite again in the future.
