Per the developers:
The building’s design is inspired by principles of “biophilia,” meaning people feel good when they are connected to nature. generous amounts of legally accessible outdoor space are planted with indigenous species on every office floor. The 30,000 sf retail space encompasses 3 open floors offering soaring ceiling heights. This iconic building is an exceptional marketing opportunity for a world class international brand.
The BP station closed on April 14 ... while Puck Fair bowed out on March 27.
