Expressed her delight in the way Project Broadstone Osborn turned out. The efforts of all involved, have resulted in an exemplary project, for which the city is very proud. Katherine reminded us how very skeptical she was at first but now stands as a strong advocate.

City of Phoenix

“I am blessed to be familiar with a few of these projects, as I visit Scottsdale a couple of times a year and have come to appreciate its architecture. In fact, I have stayed at the Valley Ho and am familiar with the surrounding area’s development. I am also familiar with your Santa Fe project.

Keep up the good work and know your work has enriched my appreciation of architecture, and you’ve contributed indirectly to that appreciation.”
