Being built by Walsh Construction, and designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB), the tower will contain 500 luxury rental units, 7,500 square feet of retail, and 188 parking spaces. The design features a unique glass façade and a wide-range of amenities including co-working space, library, lounge, dog park, green spaces, a spa and rooftop pool.
