The site is currently occupied by three buildings built in the 19050s and 60s with a total of around 52,000 square feet of office space. The completed building will have 186 parking spaces and be 340 feet tall. The residences will vary between one and three bedrooms there will be one bike storage space per unit.

A number of landscaping improvements were proposed, including artwork installations along Ipswich Street, a dining terrace for the restaurant on Boylston Street. Making the the plantings complement the Fens will also be explored.

The developers will need zoning relief for height, floor area ratio, parking and use. It will also go through Article 80 large project review.
