The structure is cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned decks. The exterior skin consists of precast brick panels, aluminum panels, stucco, structural Douglas fir timbers, and aluminum soffits.

The rooftop amenity spaces consist of a six-ply cross-laminated timber (CLT) structure surrounded by an outdoor space utilizing a pedestal paver system. Additional amenities include power actuated hardware at all doors and glass entrances, HEPA filtration systems throughout, and touchless destination dispatch elevator controls. Swinerton self-performed structural concrete, metal stud and drywall, doors/frames and hardware, CLT mass timber, as well as clean-up services.
