Outdoor functions include: a wood deck adjacent to the community room, gardening areas, walking paths and a dog walk. Apartments consist of one, two and three bedroom units from 800 to 1200 s.f. with private balconys. Parking is available in the lower level. The $12 million, 5-1/2 story, building is constructed of load-bearing masonry and pre-cast concrete.
