Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, the rental apartment building includes a pre-K through 8th grade public school, an ambulatory care facility for New York Downtown Hospital, ground-floor retail space and one level of below-grade hospital parking. Two public plazas border the site on the north side of the Financial District, near the 9/11 Memorial Museum, City Hall, the City Hall park, and the adjacent New York Downtown Hospital.
