Carmi’s Move

CARMI Design Group has opened a new office in Niles. CARMI told us more:
CARMI Design Group is kicking off its 33rd year of business in the team’s newly remodeled office. The architectural design firm recently moved to 210 E. Main Street, Suite 200, in Niles, after calling Edwardsburg home for more than two decades.
