You may have noticed that across from Ultra Foods there are 2 buildings that look like ours in the Larkspur complex. These were the original models for Hanover Square which was originally to have a total of 64 buildings for a total of 384 units.
After completion of phase one construction, which is Hanover Square as we know it now, the 3H Building Corporation went bankrupt and the rest of the land, which is now Larkspur, was sold to another developer. Below is a map of what Hanover Square ORIGINALLY was to look like.
