AC Martin designed the contemporary glass-and-steel tower, which features outdoor decks above its roof and its parking podium. Plans call for amenities including a fitness center, a half-court basketball court, a sand volleyball court, and a dog park.
Mack Urban, along with its partner AECOM Capital, is also building a half-acre pocket park at the foot of the tower. The new green space is being designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
