Description: LEED-certified luxury condominiums featuring 128 units. One of the few steel structure residential buildings at the time, steel allowed the developer to choose light weight prefabricated panels of brick and synthetic stucco designed by EEWS. The panels were welded onto the steel columns, a less expensive option in terms of materials and labor. And, EEWS managed installation quickly despite tight urban quarters the panels were prefabricated in the shop and require little lay down space.
