Hot-dipped galvanized steel used in lieu of historical limestone accents the planar masonry walls with their unusually deep-set windows, cut out corner, and large retail show windows. The window lintels express the contemporary nature of the building’s construction. The symmetrically organized plan provides four corner units per floor, each with the ideal split bedroom layout with corner living/dining spaces maximizing views. Durable yet elegant, the lobby utilizes plastic laminate wall surfacing along with ceramic tile in both matte and gloss finishes to  provide an interplay between walls, floors and openings. This arrangement of simple details, and a clear expression of the plan through the exterior, provides the building with a distinctive and dynamic presence in its neighborhood.
