The building even has temperature-controlled storage center, which is available in multiple large storage units.
While most luxury apartments in the area are located in midrise and high-rise buildings, the apartments at this three-story building have a unique loft-like design. People can choose from a one-bedroom, two-bedroom or three-bedroom unit at this apartment complex, and decide from an oversized loft, flat, or duplex design. There are a total of 46 apartment units for residents, and the roomy apartments average out to a total area of about 1,200 SF. Alongside the classy modern features in the apartments are charming historic features that have been beautifully integrated into the apartments’ designs to give them a classy and unique finish. Interior stairs, wood beams, and exposed brick walls are just a few of the preserved designs that the apartments contain. The loft-style units are also outfitted with soaring ceilings, some of which reach 15 feet high or more. There are over 35 styles of floor plans to choose from, which ensures that everyone can find something that they like.
Some features are common to all units in the building, while other apartments have additional special features. Some commonalities that the units share are in-unit washing machines and dryers, walk-in closets, wiring connections for internet access, professional series stainless steel appliances in the kitchens, custom cabinetry, silestone counters, luxurious bathrooms with ceramic tile floors, and a combination of decorative lighting and trendy track lighting.

Additional amenities that these industrial-chic apartments may have are classic sliding barn-style doors and private terraces.
As there are many floor plans to choose from across all categories, people can expect to find several choices within each type of apartment size and style. There are several floor plans for the one-bedroom units, for instance, which include standard one-bedroom apartments and deluxe one-bedroom apartments with 1.5 baths, which are provided in the form of duplexes. The one-bedroom units are sized anywhere between 555 SF and 792 SF. A 555 SF unit has a long and narrow design that fits all of the apartment’s conveniences in a spacious and easily accessible design. The entrance leads to a functional and attractive living space that includes a partially secluded bedroom, which is bordered by a custom full bathroom. The chef’s kitchen, complete with GE appliances, shares a large open space with the main living room, which is accented by an oversized industrial window that brings light into every corner of the room. The slightly larger 792 SF apartment has a different layout that puts a larger and equally elegant full bathroom right by the entrance. The sleeping section in this unit is a bit wider, and the kitchen forms an L-shape along the living room wall to maximize the amount of open space in that room. People who want a slightly larger one-bedroom apartment can get the 1.5 bath duplex design. Apartments in this size start at 674 SF and top out at 708 SF. Spread out across two levels of living space in this type of apartment are a bedroom, a majestic full bathroom with a stall shower and linen closet, a powder room, a gourmet kitchen, and an ample sized living room. The lower level is designed for activity and daily living. It has the professional kitchen, which lies alongside the half bathroom, and the versatile living room. Up the stairs is a spacious bedroom that can easily hold a king-size bed and additional pieces of furniture and personal decorations. The bedroom is next to the primary full bathroom, which is both elegant and functional. The oversize industrial window spans both floors, which allows light to filter through and warm the rooms on both levels. The layout for the 708 SF apartment is very similar, but the rooms are larger, and there is a larger closet in the bedroom for storage. The kitchen in this unit is also placed alongside a wall that transitions to the living room. Like the smaller 1.5 bath duplex, the lower level in this apartment is designed for active living, and the upstairs portion contains the sleeping quarters and the exquisite full bath.
Like the one-bedroom units, the two-bedroom apartments come in a few different styles. People can choose to get a straight two-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms, or a deluxe classic loft-style suite with two levels of living space. The two-bedroom apartments also include the option of a two-bedroom unit plus a den. The standard two-bedroom units with two bathrooms vary in size from 1,049 SF to 1,269 SF. The next biggest units are the duplex units. There are a few units in this category. The smallest in this series is 1,099 SF, and the largest is 1,318 SF. There are two two-bedroom apartments with an additional den, which have total sizes of 1,314 SF and 1,438 SF. A standard two-bedroom unit accommodates all moods and personalities with space for rest, relaxation, and hosting. The living room is the main attraction in this spacious apartment, and it transitions seamlessly to the light-filled dining area. The lavish kitchen is adjacent to the dining space, which makes it easy to put freshly prepared meals on the table. On the other end of the apartment is a large bedroom with two expansive closets for personal storage. The polished bathroom, complete with a tub-style shower, is right next to the bathroom. Across the hall are the laundry room and a coat closet. The beautiful duplex apartments have a stunning split-level design with a second floor that has an atrium overlooking the first floor. Both floors, as with the one-bedroom duplexes, are cast in light from the floor-to-ceiling industrial windows. The two-bedroom duplex also has a full bedroom and a delightful large bathroom on the top floor, and there is an additional bedroom and bathroom on the main level. The professional-level kitchen on the first floor has a full set of appliances separated by ample counter space for food preparation. A pleasant breakfast nook at the end of the kitchen is a great place to sit down for a mid-day snack or a casual meal. The two-bedroom units with a bonus den have a single-floor layout with a generously sized master suite adjacent to a magnificent living room with incredible views through the ceiling-high industrial windows.
