Apartments here range from studios to two bedroom units and feature wood floors, stone countertops, custom cabinetry and closets as well as a common area rooftop terrace with barbecues, fire pits and a lounge with demonstration kitchen. There is even an outdoor swimming pool and cabana deck for soaking up the last few summer rays and an indoor on-site yoga and fitness studio with cardio and resistance equipment.
