The six-story contemporary project connects residents with a lively street scene via balconies and the floor-to-ceiling windows of units and community amenity spaces. The ground floor is activated by three retail spaces and a front yard garden. The street corner is marked by a drum form which expresses itself at the roof by a distinctive round parapet. A covered driveway provides off-the-street access to the building entry, and continues to ground level and underground parking. Common amenities are generous, with a stylish lobby, large two-story multi-purpose room and a gym. On each residential floor, a lounge with kitchen that residents can reserve is provided.
A break in the “street wall” at the south side of the courtyard opens the ‘zen’ garden to views and accommodates a partly-covered swimming pool, where careful screening provides tranquility enhanced by pools, fountains and lush landscaping.
