This ten-story mixed-use building is designed to allow for maximum street presence of a commercial tenant on the ground floor while maintaining a separate identity for the residential property above. It houses 34 apartment units ranging from studios to 2-bedrooms units. The penthouses on the 10th floor have access to private rooftop terraces, while the eighth floor units and two units on the second floor also enjoy private terraces. The rest of the building residents have access to private balconies or an outdoor recreation space located on the second floor terrace.

The asymmetrical façade highlights the residential entry, accentuates the verticality of the building, and allows for corner views down 14th Street, a major thoroughfare in downtown Manhattan which terminates at the Hudson River. The exterior of the building welcomes shoppers into the commercial space while providing security to the residents. This is achieved by recessing the storefront of both entrances and extending the wall separating the residential lobby and commercial space beyond the storefront, further distinguishing the different use groups. A canopy spanning the entire frontage claims the area to create a buffer zone.
