Facts

  • Originally proposed at 32 floors rising 370 feet, the building has since been scaled back due to a neighborhood petition of 1,100 signatories.
  • The facade design was changed before construction from a poured concrete exposed system to a masonry cladding with recessed balconies.
  • Above grade parking within the building has been scaled back from 8 to 4 floors in light of the reduction in residential units. The number of units has been scaled back from 227 to 182 mostly two bedroom condominiums.
