The property is being developed by Xinyuan’s U.S. arm, XIN Development Group, and is designed by Dutch architect Piet Boon.

Halstead Property’s Robert Lynn and Shelley Wasserman are marketing the units, a handful of which are already in contract, including a $710,000 one-bedroom and a $1.53 million two-bedroom. The development is slated for completion in 2016.
