The new construction of two towers located at the corner of Perry and West Streets are cladded in clear glass with painted aluminum mullions and are 17 stories high. The apartments, which are floor to ceiling glass exposures, are 2,000 to 4,000 square feet.

The structure and service core are located at the rear of each building. The towers are a flat concrete slab system with round columns. The south tower is founded on a 36-inch mat foundation, while the north tower is supported on 100 ton piles, about 100 foot long, driven into rock. The ground floor in one of the towers houses a cafe and there is a private fitness center for residents.
