The project is a conversion of commercial space to residential. Located in close proximity to Royal Alex Hospital, as well as the transit centre, and Kingsway Mall, the project, although not large, adds 18 more units to the mixed-use building. Other areas of improvement involve fire safety of the existing building, and some entry level improvements for the pedestrian and building occupants.

The project slots 18 new residential units into the existing 3rd floor, providing a mix of studio, single and double bedroom units. Upgrades to the main floor were also required, triggered due to the current code and occupant safety. Work on the existing building is challenging, as codes and energy efficiency has changed dramatically since the time it was built, and this adds to the complexity of the project.
