This program can include structural interventions and projects to address specific social, economic, and environmental exposure and vulnerability. This campaign enables the city not just to bounce back after a hazard strikes, but to also prepare for and prevent a disaster so as to “bounce forward” together in ways to reduce future risk. 

The best of both worlds at this high-valued development in the Metro South

In the luxury real estate space today, one brand has caught the attention of investors and discriminating end-users: Filigree, which has fast become synonymous with exclusivity, exceptional craftsmanship, and unrivaled property values.

With every project initiated and completed—from high-rise condominiums to low-density horizontal developments—Filigree has challenged, and delivered, the very definition of what luxury should be—each project a prime investment offering blue chip returns.

Thousands of pet owners now consider their furry companions as family and would often bring them along when they go on vacation. Veterinarians remind owners that leaving their homes and traveling to foreign places can be overwhelming and stressful to pets; these animals therefore have a tendency to avoid eating, become lethargic, and even run away from their owners.
