Residents will have access to a outdoor amenity space on the roof of the building.

The redevelopment replaces a 1987-built strip mall that is currently occupied by the popular, longtime Dai Tung Chinese Seafood Restaurant, and Natureway Farm Market.

A floor space ratio density of 2.47 times the size of the lot will be generated by the project, based on its total floor area of 44,363 sq. ft. and the lot size of about 18,000 sq. ft.

Two underground levels will contain 78 vehicle parking stalls.
