This mixed-use five-story residential/commercial building is developed and designed by the same team behind the more famous neighbor the National Sawdust art space – developer Kevin Dolan and architect Bureau V Architecture. The structural system consists of composite lightweight concrete on metal deck floors supported by steel beams and columns. The steel superstructure was designed to include a thirty-foot high open commercial space on the first floor; the interior columns for the residential floors above were transferred on five-foot-high steel trusses below the second floor. 

The façade is comprised of a field of angled metal panels “that serve to both define the silhouette of the building and act as a rain-screen for the residential portion of the façade” as it is described by architect Laura Trevino.
