Landmark Gateway

The building forms congregate around common outdoor courtyards, creating a varied skyline and breaking down the building volume into discreet parts transitioning from low-rise, to mid-rise to high-rise.


Building Expression

A terraced top integrates the Penthouse into the building massing. Bay windows and inset balconies add variety to the tallest stretches of the elevation, and a strong stone base anchors the mass.

Canopies, pergolas, and awnings bring human scale at grade level.



The building form steps down progressively towards the low-rise context offering abundant private and common terrace opportunities.

Hedges planted along the perimeter of the property also contribute to the privacy and safety of the building’s grounds.
