This 9-story mixed use building is located in the heart of Chinatown and includes 2,800 sq. ft. of ground retail space along Arch Street. Six residential floors were built consisting of 13 efficiency apartment units per floor. Two residential floors hold 8 efficiency apartment units as well as several amenity spaces including exercise room, library/wi-fi, admin offices, and two terraces with cityscape views.

Sustainable construction highlights energy efficient lighting throughout and "day-lighting" features in stair towers. Certain building materials originate from recycled content and 80% of the roof area is intended for a vegetative green roof. Construction wrapped up November 2015 with LEED Silver certification.

This project was constructed on a joint venture basis by McDonald/Driscoll JV.
