The overall project comprises 321 luxury apartments, 24,000ft² of office space, which is 90% pre-leased to Independence Blue Cross and CVS, full concierge service, rooftop fitness centre, roof garden, rooftop ledge pool and a game room with golf simulator.

The project also involves construction of a 215-car structured parking lot, which would support the development as well as offering a necessary public facility.
