Each apartment has a kitchenette, washroom, common living and bed area, closet and storage above the 10 feet high ceiling, along with a Juliet balcony attached outside. The building includes common amenities like gym, lounge, terrace, bicycle storage and garden. The façade has been treated in four graduating shades of grey brick in varying textures. The prefabricated modules, composed of steel frames and concrete slabs, are transported to site and bolted into place along with the stairs and elevators, etc. Parameters of quality housing like good lighting and ventilation have been efficiently integrated into the design, as also prefabrication makes it easy to ensure the quality of materials and fixtures used. Mayor Bloomberg hailed the modular system of construction as being faster, less expensive, allowing high level of quality control, reducing waste as well as truck traffic and safer for construction workers.
