An attractively landscaped garden stands immediately outside the building along this portion of Springvale Avenue; it changes from time to time, but sometimes includes rose bushes and other fragrant flowers. It adjoins a broad public sidewalk. Residential properties stand beside this condo building on the west and across the street.
On the two upper levels, the condo units facing Palmer Street enjoy broad deck-like balconies. These locations offer plenty of space to furnish a casual outdoor dining or entertaining retreat.
