The apartment building, scheduled to open this summer, includes floor-to-ceiling windows, brass kitchen and bathroom finishes and some units with balconies and skyline views.

They Said It:

“The project celebrates the site’s historic past, with the northern condominium block rising like granite from the former quarry, and the southern rental block folded away from the street edge to open up a generous landscaped courtyard.”
