The 2020 Live Oak high-rise was built in two phases. The first four floors were constructed in 1938, and then an additional eight floors were added in 1963.

The executive team fueling Provision’s strategy and vision is principal founder and Chief Executive Officer, Clay Hill, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, David Tordoff, along with Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, David Marlow.
