The complex will feature rental apartments averaging 763 square feet apiece. Amenities include private residential storage, an inner courtyard, multiple tenant lounges, a fitness center, a bike storage room, laundry facilities, a library, a children’s playroom, and a rooftop terrace on the seventh floor.
