    • Emphasis on vegetated pedestrian spaces, including a roof garden
    • Residential units ranging from affordable to high end
    • Community-oriented courtyard entry for office / retail
    • Private vegetated roof garden with water feature and garden area for residents
    • Rainwater harvesting for landscape irrigation
    • Convenient downtown location to minimize vehicular travel
