Projects include a Residence Inn hotel; Brooklyn Place, next to the Brooklyn Station shopping center; a parking garage for Florida Blue; and the Vista Brooklyn and Lofts at Brooklyn apartment communities.

The largest project is the most expensive, the  $145 million world headquarters for Fidelity National Information Services Inc.
