The project is organized by three primary determinants. The solar access envelope requirements, the project phasing and unit mix and the opportunity to form meaningful and appropriately scaled public and recreational space, accessible to all residents.
In order to achieve these objectives, the project is composed of rectangular and square tower modules of 12 units per floor and 6 units per floor respectively. Additionally, the 12 unit modules are linked end to end in some instances to create 24 units per floor stepped and elongated massing with independent lobbies and cores for each module. The 6 unit square towers are typically 27 stories in height. The rectangular 12 unit towers vary from 12, 17 and 27 stories in height.
These massings are organized along the site perimeter in such a way that a major central courtyard is created.
