The project consists of two four-story buildings containing 81 units. The two buildings are connected by a narrow enclosed hallway. Parking is located behind the building with a spacious drop-off area adjacent to the buildings. The entire drive aisle is paved with a pervious paver system. The majority of the area behind the 2 buildings includes a community terrace, a fenced grass yard, a defined paved area of raised planter beds for use of the residents, and storage shed. The planter beds are connected to the terrace by a garden gateway covered with a trellis structure.
