This project consisted of a 372,000-sf, 12-story, 262-unit multifamily building. Site includes 150 apartments and 112 condos above a 2-story podium with 74,000-sf retail. The first residential building at the Wharf, Parcel 4, sits atop a promenade overlooking the Channel.
Comprised of an inverted "L" and a "U," the residential floors collectively rise from the podium in the shape of a "4." Condominiums are situated along the "L" and have wide waterfront views. Finished in glass, the skin reflects the water’s motion. Located on the opposite façade, the apartments face existing residential communities and have a decidedly more traditional character. A "U"-shaped massing allows abundant daylighting. Variegated brick in subtle red tones form a backdrop for large punched windows. On the northwest corner, an ascending glass channel weds modern elements to a traditional palette.
