The project, a joint venture with Philena Properties and USAA Real Estate, replaced the Martin Cadillac dealership with new buildings featuring 200,000 square feet of offices in addition to 600 apartments - including 120 units of workforce and very low-income level housing - above approximately 90,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Two anchor tenants have already been announced for the property.  League of Legends maker Riot Games, headquartered out of a nearby property to the north on Bundy, has agreed to lease the entirety of the property's office space, while high-end supermarket chain Gelson's will occupy roughly 36,000 square feet of the retail space.

Gensler, AC Martin, and Rios lead design team for the project, which includes an eight-story office tower fronting the intersection of Olympic and Bundy, and an L-shaped, seven-story apartment building framing the northern and western boundaries of the 4.8-acre development site. Between the two, a roughly one-acre pedestrian paseo cuts through the site, allow cut through traffic between the two street frontages.
