Aesthetic features include the sweeping balcony-adorned facades, distinguished feathered entrance and the delicate incorporation of a heritage facade front. Internally, this project boasts five star living with a lobby lounge served by a concierge bar upon entry, a residents’ health club and indoor retreat area, and a rooftop entertainment area including spa, poker room and viewing room.
