This new residential development is located on the site of the historic Haymarket Square Riot of 1886, which is marked by a sculpture memorializing this pivotal labor conflict.

The site history informed the building placement, providing a setback with adequate space for the existing sculpture. This setback area was crafted into a modest public pocket park, creating an inviting open space in a dense urban environment. This park space provides a welcoming entry environment including a flagstone garden walkway furnished with L-shaped benches and plantings. The amenity deck serves as an outdoor extension of the interior gathering spaces - featuring a large flexible use area with firepit lounge, a tilted plane of turf oriented toward the western sun, tiered wooden bench seating, raised planters and intimate seating areas. 

The west end of the deck receives the best sunlight, and has 8,000sf devoted to productive urban agriculture.
