Vision + Momentum

Victory Pointe, the first project, was completed in 2018, and duals as both an innovative stormwater facility; public realm park space; and outdoor sporting and event space. The award-winning stormwater facility serves to combine the elements of freeing up lakefront and park land for amenity development by allowing for a regional discharge pond.
