This mixed-use project is comprised of 365 apartments, 19 townhouses and 3,300 square feet of retail space, as well as two levels of underground parking with charging stations, bike storage and storage units. Amenities include a clubhouse with kitchen, pool table and an AV system. The patio has three barbecue stations with seating. The east building features a dog run and dog lounge. The interior courtyard, designed to resemble the San Juan Islands, is landscaped with rock walls, a running stream, a pond with fiber-optic lights and a fog feature, and natural driftwood. The courtyard has a “treehouse” amenity space with a working fireplace that overlooks the pond. The two-level fitness room has the newest in technology equipment. The southeast building features a sloping green roof and an urban farm. The project also utilized two environmentally friendly systems — a wastewater recovery system and gray water harvesting system.
