The 8-story, 316 unit, concrete frame building will include a rooftop pool terrace, club room and outdoor living with views of the Galleria and Uptown. Other amenities include: lounge, dining room, theatre, fitness, outdoor kitchen and living room. A courtyard, the new home for an old oak tree that will be transplanted from the existing site, will also connect both retail and parking.
