The strong expression of the 15-story tower anchors the project at the corner of Fourth and Bonneville. The tower's transparent street facades blur the lines between the private and public realms so that the street becomes the “urban front yard” of the complex.
The facades are dynamically composed of contemporary urban materials such as exposed structural concrete, complemented with expansive glass windows, projecting balconies and orange corrugated metal siding. The building is pulled back from the garage on the west side to allow for daylight and natural ventilation of the parking structure.
This high-rise point tower, at 283 units per acre, has the highest density of any development in downtown. Situated atop Cortez Hill, the project pays homage to the landmark El Cortez Hotel by repeating its stepped volumes, street-edge base, planar shaft, and articulated crown top.
