(ST. AUGUSTINE, FL) – Hines, the international real estate firm, revealed that KOMPAN, an innovative play equipment company out of Denmark, will be constructing the unique playground equipment for Hines’ new signature development Markland, located in St.Augustine.

KOMPAN has been world leader in the development of children’s play equipment for over 40 years. Their corporate philosophy is based on three core pillars: Health, Learning and Environment.
