The cast-in-place concrete structure has a handsome façade with filigree incisions on the parts of the façade that were based on the Fibonacci sequence. The building, which is located between 8th and 9th Avenues, has a full-time doorman/concierge service, a live-in superintendent, refrigerated storage, a fitness room, individual storage units, bicycle storage and many balconies. It has several “townhouse” units, half of which have gardens and the other half have street entrances. The building’s six penthouse apartments share a roof deck.
