The over 110,000 SF project features approximately 5,000 SF of ground floor retail and five floors of residential apartments. The project is located in the Jewelry District and is adjacent to 95 Chestnut Street, a mixed-use historic adaptive reuse project also developed by the Sponsor, and the newly expanded Johnson & Wales campus. The project will help to integrate the historic buildings of the Jewelry District, the Johnson & Wales campus expansion, and the I-195 Redevelopment District.
