This upscale apartment project, inclusive of 50 live-work units, gives contemporary expression to the area’s Art Deco history. The project occupies the southern half of the same site as the storied Desmond’s Department Store Tower, built in 1929, which represents the golden age of the neighborhood. An engaging, bold curve draws the user into the leasing lobby, while other building facades feature playful rhythms and unexpected angles. Through historically sensitive and boldly visionary design, this project links past and present in an innovative solution.
