Amenities are set to include a state-of-the-art fitness center; a spa with tanning services, an on-call masseuse and aesthetician; and a resort-style pool with an outdoor barbecue area and poolside cabanas. Third-floor homes are set to include 20-foot ceilings, a private walk-up to a mezzanine level and a fourth-story rooftop deck. Some residences also are set to include attached garages.
