The mixed use project houses 66 modern market rate apartments with associated residential amenities, 34,500 square feet of class “A” commercial space with secure (elevator assisted) parking at the first and basement levels. MacKnight Architects LLP removed the floors creating a six story sky lit atrium flooding the center area with light.

The building stone facade was selectively penetrated with floor to ceiling windows to maximize the light to each apartment unit.
