CSAA continues to find professional success as a highly respected architectural firm in the State of Florida, but what has defined its legacy is the contribution we have made within the local community,

“giving back, by design.”

"This is the third project for which we have selected CSA. Throughout each project, we have been impressed with the design ideas and final design.  Additionally, they follow-through, are diligend, and know how to work with the city during various phases of the project.  Without hesitation, should we embark on a fourth build we would choose Currie Sowards Aguila for our project.

“As the city's first municipal parking garage, CSAA’s design of this 662-space beachfront structure and for projects throughout Pompano Beach has set the bar high for future municipal and private developments to emulate. Working with the right architect proves that there are endless and creative design possibilities, even for a parking structure.”
