A strong concrete base grounds the project along the boulevard. Accommodating the public component of the project, the base activates the streetscape and gives the project a human-scale, mediating between it and the apartment buildings above.

The corner is celebrated, sheathed in metal, the sculptural form gives the project an urban identity. The apartment buildings are organized around a central courtyard that opens to views of the DTLA skyline. The buildings are capped with a metal panel roof, sloped to maximize natural ventilation and natural light through north-facing clerestory windows.
