We are your ultimate work-from-home or remote-work destination, with two providers to choose from with high speed data packages (gigabit included) to meet your needs.

Electronic Video Doorbell*

All* units have access to a video doorbell. Our video doorbell system allows your guests, friends, family members, apartment roommates, delivery persons, etc. to call you from our front door or ground level side door and for you to let them in to the building.

Using an app on your Android or iPhone, you can see a live video feed of who is requesting access to the building. Don't have a cell phone? Using your touch tone phone, you can remotely unlock the door. *With exception of our four ground level duplex units with completely private street level entrances.

Mailroom and Package Center

Our mailroom is located inside, in an air conditioned and heated room near the elevator on our ground level. Our mailroom also has a state-of-the-art package center allowing you to securely retrieve packages of almost any size from major carriers and Amazon. All package retrievals are video-recorded from several locations by the package center provider.

Off-street parking

Each apartment unit is guaranteed one off-street parking space. Additional spaces available on a case-by-case basis. We also have a group of visitor spaces available.

Private offices

Our community space includes two private offices that may be used. Our community space offers high speed internet to all residents and guests.


Five extra-special penthouses were created as part of this project and are completely new construction built on top of the building. All penthouses boast one (or more) sliding doors to access your very own private rooftop deck!
