From the 12th Floor Lobby you share with one neighbor, and enter the beautiful cut glass front door through the foyer, you are in awe of the stunning views of the river sparkling with the sunlight dancing on the water. It takes your breath away. If anything can tear your attention away from the expansive riverfront view, it’s the beautiful finishes and touches throughout this stunning condominium.
