Unit Size and Layout

Both floor plans are open concept featuring kitchens with sinks that overlook the living areas, making it easy to host and entertain guests at the same time.

Both are spacious for being 2×2 layouts, but The Ford is slightly larger allowing for bigger bedrooms and a walk-in closet that’s featured in one of the bedrooms.

Even though The Walter is smaller than the Ford by square footage, the floor plan features a very open living and kitchen area, allowing plenty of space for having friends over.

The Ford offers a balcony off of the living room overlooking Midtown. This unit is located on the 23rd floor facing Tech Square with views of Mercedes Benz Stadium and the iconic “Pencil Building” (Bank of America Plaza).

While The Walter does not have a balcony, it does have large living room windows to open the space up and make the room feel bright. These windows all face Spring Street with views of Google and NCR.
