The project contains 12 floors and 45,000 sf of high-end residential space, featuring generous ceiling heights and expansive column-free zones. Above the fourth floor, the structure projects outward, creating an undulating facade that cantilevers over the high line. As well, the building’s south facade features a structural diagonal that serves to ‘hang’ the cantilevered floors from above from the interior columns.
