Far Western Anthropological Research Group as well as three other professional tenants occupies this 11,500 SF two-story facility, completed in 2002 for $1.1 million. Sky-lit, vaulted ceilings bring in natural light and extensive operable windows afford cross-ventilation for natural cooling much of the year. The site has been configured to provide both "front" and "back" doors for employees and visitors as well as to open up to informal recreation spaces located to the north. These amenities include a decomposed granite courtyard for "bocce" ball, and a convertible basketball and volleyball court.
