Designed by PZS Architects, the project will allocate 149,590 square feet for apartments, 5,700 square feet of residential amenities, around 29,000 square feet of indoor commercial space (plus a 1,500-square-foot commercial tenant terrace) and parking for around 28 cars and 76 bicycles. Although demolition permits have been issued in May, no comprehensive construction permits have yet been issued; however, the project may proceed as of right as it conforms with the zoning code and requires no variances, and has already received a preliminary review and approval.
