7 Stars Healing Center Cannabis Dispensary

7 Stars Healing Center Cannabis Dispensary

HOPSCOTCH INTERACTIVE LLC

This project entails the renovation of an existing office building in Richmond, California that was converted into a beautiful high-end cannabis dispensary. Our goal was to translate our client’s vision to create a warm, modern atmosphere designed with stylish finishes to attract the cannabis consumer and to reflect 7 Stars Holistic Healing Center’s brand, which is a patient-focused alternative healing cooperative serving the East Bay. The dispensary serves a large number of patients for medicinal use and has listened to their requests for a less clinical environment. Using our experience in retail, we responded with a more welcoming environment that speaks to an elevated experience that reflects the care and attention that both medicinal and recreational clients receive from 7 Stars Healing.

CC by ND – Department of General Services and General Services Administration Proposal Covers

During this challenging time, we are grateful to be hard at work. Many of our clients are designated as essential, and we have two new on-call contracts to announce: with the General Services Administration (GSA) and with the Department of General Services (DGS), both government agencies that we have decades of experience working with, dating back to 1990. And we are in the fourth year of an on-call contract with the United State Postal Service, which we have worked with since the mid-1980s. We are grateful to be able to help these entities maintain the services we need. Read More

Loma Prieta 30 Years Later

Candlestick Park in the forefront of this aerial of San Francisco, California, taken by Carol M. Highsmith

October 17, 1989, I was in my Point Richmond office talking to a client in a high rise in San Francisco. All of a sudden, he yelled, “holy shit,” and I heard crashing in the background (It was his bookcases falling over). The phone went dead. A few seconds later, it hit our building, and we all spilled out into the street.

Later, we climbed to the top of Nicholl Knob where we could see the Marina District of San Francisco burning and the collapsed section of the Bay Bridge. I thought it looked like 1906 all over again.

I was in the office at daylight the next morning when I got the call from the head of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department. “How soon can you get your engineers over here?” he asked. Read More
