The building has 222 units total: 151 are rentals (with monthly rents ranging from $800 to $1,200 and 71 are co-ops, 33 of which are designated for affordable housing. The units range from 800-square-foot one-bedrooms to 1,500-square-foot three-bedrooms, spanning from $135,000 to $193,000 in price. Income restrictions vary from $54,000 to $145,000. The affordable housing co-ops were sold through a lottery in November, while the rental unit lottery was in December.

Designed by Dattner Architects and Grimshaw Architects, and developed by Phipps Houses and Jonathan Rose Companies, the building, which commenced construction in 2010, is set to be completed by the end of the month. Occupancy is slated to begin next month.
