Totaling 463,000 square feet, the new 19-story tower and 4-story low-rise feature 313 total apartments. The 19-story tower is a Type I structure that utilizes concrete and post-tension slabs set atop an eight-foot deep mat foundation. The 4-story low-rise is a Type V wood frame structure set atop a concrete podium. Both buildings are set atop a combined three-level subterranean parking structure that lies beneath a concrete podium and post-tensioned slabs. The skin of the 19-story tower features a window wall system, while balconies line three sides of the building. It also features an open-air pool and spa on the 18th floor that offer sweeping views of the downtown skyline and ocean. The tower also features 7,000 square feet of retail space and a 2,000-square foot fitness center. Further work included the relocation and rehabilitation of the historic Mexican Presbyterian Church built in 1906. It was lifted into place and transferred using a custom-designed horizontal pulley system.
