Eighth & Penn
As the interior designer, Sharon Ginocchi had a vision for the lobby of the new Eighth & Penn development Downtown: Warm and welcoming with distinctive furnishings that echo the building’s history. And she wanted local art.
Developers — in this case TREK Development and Q Development — know that custom furnishings and striking works of art can increase the appeal of a residential or office building. They are also becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of working with local makers to support the local economy and to promote their work.
