– is an integral part of the link that connects the community, Wilson Subway station, and the new public park that is the centre of this neighbourhood, Express has been designed to complement its neighbours, Grammercy Park and Southside. In keeping with the existing context, Express will have a simply framed brick and stone base which will anchor the new tower. To create an engaging streetscape, the base will feature appropriately scaled modules and series of bay windows and tall frames. These architectural details will animate the facade and individuate the building. The tower will lookover the green roofs of the podium and the city to the south, while an intimate landscaped courtyard on the south side will give residents a quiet place to escape.
Overlooking the generous courtyard with seating and barbecue areas, the building’s extensive amenities also include the 7th floor landscaped terrace with sun loungers and mist zone for all residents to enjoy. And a new private road and attractively landscaped paths throughout the neighbourhood will allow more potential routes for residents to get to the park or the Wilson Subway Station.
