The U-shaped building layout centers around a courtyard that houses outdoor amenities for residents. The ground floor features a concrete retail podium, with five levels of CLT construction developed above, while a spacious parking lot is situated underground. The six-storey structure includes glulam post-and-beam framing and a CLT roof/floor system, making it the first heavy timber building in the city.

The CLT panels are made by layering lumber boards in alternating directions, increasing tensile and compressive strength. This technique of manufacturing CLT reduces excess material waste as each panel is prefabricated to millimeter precision.  The panels can be quickly pieced together on site, speeding up construction time and reducing labor costs and safety risks. Walls, ceilings, and other structural elements feature large expanses of exposed wood with high-end finishes throughout, creating a warm aesthetic unique to CLT structures.
