This full block development maintains the urban framework of the city with pedestrian-friendly street-walls addressing the four streets, and an internal courtyard providing private open space for residents. Each street-wall responds to the specific character of its immediate context. The Island Avenue facade promotes a “fine grain texture” of entry stoops, brick surfaces, and warehouse style fenestration in response to the residential nature of this street. The high spine character of Market Street necessitates that its street level facade engage a mixed-use program thereby opening up to the street with large storefront windows. This 200-foot long facade acknowledges the block’s corners with a 7-story blue void tower and a complementary fritted glass tower.
