The street-front retail provides a base for two 10-storey office buildings comprising 228,450 sf. Two 22-storey apartment buildings, of 245 suites each, continue the urban edge with street-fronting live/work units. Contained within this ground-breaking site are also a pair of 25-storey, 179 unit condominiums, anchoring the development and providing a focal feature for the neighbourhood.

Reflecting the mixed-use nature of the project, the residential and commercial buildings are enhanced with a nine-storey, 201 suite hotel. Nearing completion, this dynamic urban development will provide the community with a variety of residences for 1,300 families and seniors, a total of 1,462,970 sf of office and retail plus the hotel.
