Own a Sharp Modern Loft at Safari Drive

Safari Drive lofts is the place to be if you want the cool modern look to your office and residence. Bright orange awnings advertise your business if you pick a live-work loft in the front. 

The two story modern lofts have an open floorplan.  Office space is generally mixed in with the living space downstairs.
