Parking is provided in an underground four level garage. The building consists of 64 studio and one bedroom residential units (totaling 51,020 square feet), 19,952 square feet of commercial/retail space on the ground floor (including 2,280 square feet service area), and 60,664 square feet of office space above the ground floor. The building includes a residential courtyard at the rear of the building and a roof terrace. Seventy-four (74) long-term and eighteen (18) short-term bike parking spaces are proposed.
