District House collaboration with artist Matt Siber
As the project approaches final completion, the development team announced an ongoing art project it has conducted in collaboration with artist Matt Siber. At the onset of the project, the developer commissioned Matt Siber to document the construction of the building. His collection of photos was recently narrowed and new artwork is being produced for the District House lobby and common areas. These images will also be archived and distributed to key project stakeholders as construction draws to a close.
