Jackson | Main strives to create truly mixed-use communities that connect living, working, recreation, and transportation to promote interaction with the environment and with others.

With experience in multi-family residential, senior living, modular micro-apartments, and high-end single family, JMA is one of the Northwest’s most prolific residential designers.

With the use of our virtual reality design tools, we encourage clients to become actively involved in the design process. VR allows clients to walk a project site, or stroll through buildings before ever breaking dirt. We often support clients through marketing/lease up with our visualization and graphic capabilities.
