The 2.3 million square foot project touches the ground lightly as its mass morphs into smaller units to relate to the lower density neighborhood around it.

The tallest tower, at 70 stories, is expected to be the highest residential building in New Jersey. The first of three phases, topping out at 54 stories, broke ground in January 2014, and is expected to be complete in mid-2016.
