Approved in spring 2018, and developed by Aurmon False Creek Developments, in conjunction with Tidball projects, the project was designed by DYS Architecture.

The project will be located in the Southeast False Creek area, and will have excellent access to public transit, with Olympic Village Station a 270 metre walk away, and the 084 bus line running along 2nd Ave. The site is also very close to the popular Olympic Village area, and Vancouver Seawall, and features an impressive Walk Score of 95.
