Phase I consists of Building 1 and 2—a combined 111 units—retail space and parking.

The ground floor retail spurs activity on the street while hiding parking behind and above. The apartments and rooftop terrace give a terrific view of the city skyline and Red Mountain.

The design is sleek—using metal panels, zinc, concrete, and stucco to blend the various uses and define the layers of public and private spaces.

Phase II (Building 3) consists of 325 micro to three-bedroom units with retail, restaurants, parking, and amenities.

The interiors are comfortable and modern with high-quality, neutral finishes in the units and bold, bright colors in the public spaces.

With ground floor retail, gathering spaces, a fitness center, and a pool deck, amenities are key to this phase of the development. The amenity deck serves the entire complex and includes the development’s pool, bocce courts, green space, outdoor grilling, and hammocks.
