Located at the northeast corner of Motor Avenue and Tabor Street, the project consists of a six-story building that will feature 42 one- bedroom apartments above 1,724 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 52-car garage at completion.

RBM's entitlements require that four of the new apartments be set aside as deed-restricted affordable housing.
