The retail component of the project would include approximately 208,050 sf of space designed to accommodate a mix of tenants including restaurant, smaller boutique and medium sized retailers, and large-format retailers. Retail would occupy the grade, second and third levels of the main building, and the ground floor of the loft building. The residential component of the Project would total approximately 365,400 sf of residential condominium use, distributed between the 146-foot high loft building and a 390-foot high residential tower projecting from the main building. The hotel and office uses would be located in a second, 305-foot high tower rising above the northeast corner of the main building.
