A permit for vertical construction of the first 680-unit tower was applied for in June 2022, and is still listed as being in review. John Moriarty is also the contractor on that permit.
Other pending permits include tree and demolition permits.
Two 43-story towers are planned on the property, with:
- 1,394 apartments

The project was announced in August 2022, with construction financing said to have been issued.
In October, the proposal had a hearing before the Urban Development Review Board.
In January, the developers signed a deal for water and sewer utilities.
