The development will rise just a block away from the Tremont Avenue station, serviced by the B and D trains, and four blocks away from the Tremont Station, serviced by Metro-North. SKF Development is responsible for the project.

Each floor from the first to eighth will contain eleven apartments. Bicycle storage with capacity for 45, and a laundry room will be available in the cellar. 1,400 square feet of outdoor recreation space will be available on ground floor.
