The unit was a model in the building. Features include two full baths, 10-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, espresso wood floors, custom Lightology lighting, limestone tile in the master bath, custom designer window shades and seven custom-fitted closets.

The purchase price was above the $869,000 asking price, but the purchase price included one parking space.
