The Village at 17th Street Amenities and Spaces
Since we are driven by a philanthropic aim rather than strictly market conditions, Shared Spaces offers reasonable rents and attractive leases. Shared amenities (such as conference, board, training, break rooms, copy and mailing centers, and common areas) enrich nonprofits by giving them access to previously unattainable resources. Our amenities foster collaboration between tenants, ranging from shared administrative functions to joint programs, bringing increased stability, affordability, and mission enhancement to participants.

About RiverRock Real Estate Group:
Based on decades of experience managing and leasing national portfolios across the country, we know there is a void in what is being provided to owners. Typically, to achieve cost expectations, property service firms end up cutting back on the very thing they were hired to do – provide quality property services to the owner and the asset.
Determined to find a better solution for our clients, RiverRock looked outside the real estate industry at successful customer-service based industries for new ideas in service, technology, training and pricing.
The result? A client-centric property management firm located throughout the Western United States.
