The kidney-shaped building has 113 luxury apartments—many with cantilevered balconies—some as long as 25 feet out from the building and formed of built-up welded sections and bolted to vertical steel H-beams fixed to the concrete floor slabs. Steel pergolas serve as sun-breakers above the balconies.
The reinforced-concrete column-and-slab structure and enclosing walls rely on faceted planes to bend around corners.
The building includes a rooftop bar and restaurant, and an art gallery is housed in the base, with coworking office space on the floor above.
