Of the structure’s 469,000 gross square feet, 366,000 will be dedicated to residential use. The property will yield 467 rentals, averaging 558 square feet apiece. Eighty-five of the units will have private balconies, which will be scattered across the northern and southern façades in a staggered and checkered pattern. The ground floor and first floor in the podium will contain 288 vehicle parking spaces as well as storage for 192 bicycles.

The closest subways are the B and Q trains at the Church Avenue station. Prospect Park is a six-block walk to the west and can easily be seen from the building, as can the skylines of Downtown Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan, and Midtown. The Verrazano Narrows Bridge and Statue of Liberty are also visible from the outdoor swimming pool and rooftop space.

The building will contain over 50,000 square feet of residential amenities. The cellar level will have a fitness center, a steam room and sauna, a game room and golf simulator, a business center, a residential lounge, a party room, a screening room, and a large indoor swimming pool and hot tub underneath a ceiling of sparkling, hand-laid tiles. The fourth floor will have a half basketball court, a dog run, an outdoor fitness space, landscaped planters and outdoor seating, a co-working lounge, a children’s playroom, and another residential lounge. The 22nd floor will come with an outdoor rooftop pool along with a staircase that leads to more space for residents to walk around and enjoy the views of Brooklyn and the city skyline.
