From Start to Finish... We're showcasing projects in all stages of development—from groundbreakings through final occupancy. Scroll down the page to browse the six projects highlighted in Great Things: Issue 10.
University of Central Florida College of Nursing
Owner: University of Central Florida
Location: Lake Nona, FL
Completion Date: 2025
Designer: HuntonBrady Architects
Partners: TLC Engineering Solutions, Ayers Saint Gross (ASG)
This project is a ground-up building featuring 90,000 sq ft. of flexible instructional space, collaborative study areas and innovative simulation labs. The labs will include dedicated space for virtual reality learning and structured clinical examination to prepare students for practice.
This project plays a role in addressing the national nursing shortage. The finished project will have a positive impact on communities in Central Florida and across the state as the majority of UCF nursing graduates remain in Florida to live and work.

Gasan Data Center
Owner: Confidential Client
Location: Seoul, South Korea
Completion Date: Q3 2025
Designer: HAEAHN Architecture Inc.
Partners: KEYSUNG E&C, SEJIN Electric Engineering, DL E&C
The project is one of the last data center developments in Gasan. When complete, the 57,000-sq.-ft. building will consist of eight floors.
DPR is providing design/permit management, project preplanning, and supported the client through the pursuit and negotiation with its master lease tenant.
DPR’s involvement began in late 2022 when the team provided technical translation assistance while the project was being co-developed by both Korean and foreign developers. The project broke ground in Summer of 2023, and DPR is currently engaged as project manager for the construction phase.

This is the largest office tower project Granite Properties has ever built. Construction includes demolition of existing structures, a six-level belowgrade parking garage and a 26-story, 625,000-sq.-ft. core and shell office tower with a finished two-story lobby, outdoor workspace, restaurants and dramatic views.
Construction in this dense urban area requires robust planning, scheduling and coordination to sequence concrete pours, with the help of 70 laborers and carpenters.
Owner: Lane Partners
Location: South San Francisco, CA
Completion Date: October 2024 (Phase 1)
Designer: DES Architects & Engineers
Partners: Holmes, GPLA, Inc.
This development project consists of seven buildings and two parking garages built across 31 acres. Phase 1 includes a 318,000-sq.-ft. Class A office building, a one-story mass timber amenities building, and a cast-in-place parking structure for 987 cars.
Southline is an innovative mixed-use, transit-oriented development. It will revitalize the area by adding up to 2.8 million sq. ft. of Class A office and life science space.
Design-to-build efforts included changing the amenities structure from steel to mass timber. In collaboration with strategic partner GPLA, DPR’s self-perform concrete team changed the parking structure from a mat foundation to a grade beam foundation.
