The design of the building utilizes the flexibility of design with stucco, aluminum and glass in an innovative way. The massing is sensitive in that it bridges the adjacent 6-story building with a 2-story building in a stepped fashion.

The second and third floor have two apartments each, while the first and fourth floor are full-floor duplexes. The 14 foot high ceilings, when combined with the angled rear walls and generous fenestration, create an ideal living environment in the city.
