94 market-rate apartments enclose a large central courtyard that opens to a corner entry to the complex. The double height, glass fronted lobby looks out onto to the entrance plaza. A two-story, 5,000-square-foot retail space fronts on Mathilda Avenue, while the ground floor community spaces are aligned along W. Iowa Avenue. On Charles Street, the townhouse units facing a single-family residential neighborhood are two-story, while the other apartment buildings are four-story. The modern design is open and airy with balconies that support an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Careful massing, scale, and detail assure that the development marries comfortably with the neighborhood context.
