Our Stories

Place matters when its story is told

Culture, Canvas and Conversation

EDENS places are rich with stories— from our own team, from retailers and restaurateurs, from the artists who infuse our properties with life, color and originality.

We lead with our people, who create our culture. Places are the canvas in which we design and curate meaningful experiences. We engage through conversation: a compelling collection of visuals, words and creative intellect.

A Seat at the Table: EDENS’ Sunday Supper Celebrates 10th Anniversary

At EDENS, we believe in the power of women.

Over the past several years, women business owners and entrepreneurs were gaining traction in the marketplace at a steady pace.

Go Green

Though we are 100% carbon neutral at all EDENS’ public spaces, we are still committed to doing even more for our people, places and planet. As stewards of our communities, we are responsible for ensuring the future. Our efforts today leave a lasting impact.

Rebuilding a Culture of Togetherness

Community is the foundation on which we all exist. It’s where we connect, collaborate and come together to create our lives.

We all smile in the same language.

At a time when cohesive, supportive communities are so important, we feel our places serve as the canvas for meaningful experiences that inspire curiosity and wonder.
