This new mixed-use, mixed-income development respects both the immediate traditional and the minimalist, industrial character of its context. The base of the building is glassy and open with contrasting colored precast concrete panel ribbons that define combined volumes of interior space. The body of the residential floors appears to be lifted off the base and is defined by conceptual book covers that hold both street walls. The facades feature a staggered pattern of alternating sized precast panels which appear layered with contrasting textures creating a sense of dynamic movement and activity. Window units include a colored accent panel that plays up asymmetry, alternating orientation from floor to floor. The primary street walls accentuate the acute angle of the site and the conceptual spine of the book contrasts to glazed end walls. These two volumes are gapped by a ‘slot’ anchored by a glass feature and canopy, emphasizing the central axis of the plan and serving as a backdrop to the articulated corner plaza.
