Project Details

There are some project sites that are so fundamental to its neighborhood, it is hard to separate building from community. Given the site’s location at the center of the historic Elizabeth neighborhood and anchoring the most prominent corner of its “main and main” intersection, the project could not be more critical to the fabric of the neighborhood. Executed with care, it will become the heart of Elizabeth…it’s gathering place…and quite simply, that is our goal. One of the key design drivers was to pay homage to the community’s excellent architectural heritage while also striving to create a vibrant, modern home for excellent boutique and local retail tenants as well as best in class office tenants. Care is being taken so the architecture is timeless, its scale responds to the surrounding context, and the streetscape is alive and animated. The building serves as an iconic architectural anchor, driven by the unique angularity at its primary corner and strives to embrace that unique site configuration and celebrate the corner with a heroic prow and pedestrian plaza.
