Urby – Harborside Plaza is a multi-phase project that will ultimately yield a total of three luxury rental towers, each with a distinctive, shifting floor massing. Their memorable profile is an expression of a new and innovative housing brand. Individual units are efficient in size, but spacious in feel, ideal for urban living. The design delivers flexible living space, capable of accommodating a multitude of arrangements. Large windows ensure an abundance of natural light. Residents will benefit from a number of common facilities, too, including a lobby café, gym, and rooftop gardens and terraces. The project is LEED certified.
