Located in a large residential district on a flat site about 10 feet above street level the building was designed to resemble row housing to reduce the overall scale of the project. Using multi-colored bricks, different roof lines and varied window placement the 4-story plus basement building is integrated into the surrounding neighborhood. The L-shaped foot print of the building contains 13 dwelling units and 40 occupants. The middle two units have gabled fronts covered with colored metal roofs.The end units are topped with a mansard roof and dormers. The sloping face of the mansard is covered with shingles. Extensive use of limestone trim further breaks down the scale.
