The architectural sophistication of Ed McEachron and interior design brilliance of Ken Fulk come together to create a one of a kind penthouse environment for entertaining and comfortable City living indoors and out. The finest materials, finishes and accessories have been selected to provide a 'perfect' home for the most discerning urban dweller.
The restrained but well-articulated detailing of the building's creme toned brick facade and that of its twin next door echoes the quietly elegant architecture of the town homes of Wilton Crescent off London's Belgrave Square. The ground floor is divided into three rusticated sections. The elegant lobby entrance is framed by a pair of pilasters which rise to the pent level balustrade capped with two large stone urns. Cross-hatched transom windows and discrete embellishments complete the refined composition.
The pent house apartment may be accessed by elevator from the garage level.

Transom picture windows and French doors open to the landscaped SOUTH TERRACE with wonderful views of the cityscape ranging from Twin Peaks and Lone Mountain College to the magnificent dome of City Hall and southeasterly glimpse of the Bay.
