“We have invested more than $5 million since we moved Chameleon’s headquarters to Grand Center through the acquisition and renovation of the Bronson House, the Barnett on Washington and the land for the adjacent Urban Chestnut Brewing Co.,” said Drew Acree, President of Chameleon Integrated Services. “These investments are improving the quality of life in this area, helping us recruit high quality employees and attracting new investments by other nearby businesses.”
