Designed by FitzGerald Associates Architecture, the residential building will rise 18 stories, offering 117 apartments with 381 beds. A concept that was gaining prominence before the COVID-19 pandemic, co-living is a lifestyle that provides residents with a more affordable housing option by offering smaller, fully furnished private rooms with a shared common space. Residents would have utilities, furniture, rent and linen service included in their monthly payments.

Residential facilities will include a coworking space, gym and rooftop lounge, outdoor rooftop terrace. Bicycle parking will be provided while car parking should be omitted from the project. Commercial space on the ground floor is also planned for the building.
