This historic French limestone building was completely renovated from Head -to-toe and now consists of 123 and was formerly an office building first converted to a rental apartment building and now converted to a Condomimium.
The units are a unique combination with architectural contrasts, creating a perfect balance with loft-like modern interiors.

The residence offers elegant and spacious units from studios to two-bedroom homes as well as some grandly proportioned combined apartments, ranging up to approximately 2,500 square feet.

Bathrooms walls are clad in stone with Kohler bath fixtures and accessories with chrome finishes create contemporary accents. Bathrooms in most of the larger homes feature a rain showerhead, glass enclosed shower and separate soaking tub.
