The 20-story tower shares a site with St. Paul’s Cathedral and will include approximately 17,000-square-feet of office and meeting space and 10,000-square feet of ground floor outdoor courtyard to support the cathedral’s ministry to the community.  348 automobile parking spaces are provided in a 5-level underground parking structure including 70 spaces dedicated for cathedral attendees.

The nearly 300,000-SF development includes 204 residential units of which 18 are designated affordable for low-income residents.  The unit mix is comprised of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, as well as penthouse suites, and range in size from 533 to 1,625-SF.  Tenant amenities include grand lobby and leasing offices, mail room, fitness room including group studio space, lounge and work spaces, a dog run and pet spa with grooming services, and sky deck equipped with a pool, spa and BBQ area.

The project is anticipated to achieve LEED certification for its sustainable design and practices.
