The building blends into the historic Holt Renfrew Ogilvy complex with its sleek black facades. The project has a total surface area of 35,000 m2 and is 18 storeys high. The building includes a hotel, 18 private residences and over 3,000 m2 of commercial space.
The exterior envelope consists of a glass curtain wall whose components provide maximum fenestration. In the upper portion of the building, from the 14th floor up, the façade extends outward. This overhanging volume differentiates the residential section from the hotel section.
