Twelve identical two-bedroom suites (six units per floor, on two levels) overlook the residential neighbourhood of Crescentwood. The surrounding gardens, also visible from each unit through generous glazing on both the east and west elevations, retain the character and integrity of their original 1960 design.
The building is compact and angled on its site. The superstructure is constructed of site-cast reinforced concrete with a steel joist floor system. This structural frame is clearly expressed and legible from the building's exterior, and is finished in Tyndall limestone cladding and exposed structural concrete.
Interior divisions are of concrete block, with cast-on-site concrete floors. Each unit is 950 square feet, divided into five rooms, with a small private balcony, and each was originally fitted with a masonry fireplace. At the time of construction modern interior finishing included wood panelling and plaster. "This small building proves that a 12-suite apartment on a small site can be an elegant contribution to downtown living and to the city's appearance." (Canadian Architect, December 1964)
