The three buildings, encompassing a total area of 54,300m², will all include street-level retail.

Architecture and urban design for the project is by WDG Architecture.

The office portion of the project will be housed in a six-storey building that will include nearly 1,000m² of retail space and three levels of underground parking.

The residential component, named Gallery at Bethesda, will include 455 residential units housed in two 16 and 17-storey buildings.

The residential buildings will include green roofs and rooftop amenities including sun decks, sky lounges, game rooms, gardens and swimming pools.

All three buildings will feature glass façades with the residential buildings expected to meet LEED requirements, while the office tower should qualify for LEED Silver certification.
