Three buildings totaling 271 units as well as retail commercial space make up the first phase, with an estimated completion date of the third building in spring 2021 The remaining two buildings are to be built at a later date.

Designed by Calgary based Alvin Reinhard Fritz Architect Inc the purpose built rental project will add 519 new units to the area once complete. The area itself is ripe with amenities, being a stone's throw away from Calgary largest mall, Chinook Centre, and walking distance to the Heritage LRT Station. It also fronts Macleod Trail, Calgary's longest and busiest commercial retail corridor.
