At the top of the building will be an open-air observatory with shared lounge space and grilling stations, as well as private cabanas available for purchase. At street level will be a verdant plaza designed by Adjaye Associates and Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architecture, inspired by the pocket parks of Midtown Manhattan created in the 1960s and 1970s.

Studios will begin at about $650,000, one-bedrooms at about $1.11 million, two-bedrooms at about $1.85 million, three-bedrooms at about $2.6 million, and four-bedrooms at about $5.42 million.
