The new rental replacement building complex of 105 units is composed of a seven storey building and fourteen three storey townhouse units. The taller building curves gently along the street face while the townhouses define both sides of a new street on a diagonal axis through the master-planned community linking the subway station to the Parkway Forest Park. Ground related units open onto patios at street level and a landscaped interior courtyard. The buildings connect below grade to an existing parking garage and share ramps,  loading and garbage pickup with neighbours. Finishes are simple and durable with an interplay of horizontal and vertical elements punched into buff brick facades.
