In the summer months, take advantage of rooftop breezes, by opening up the exterior glass wall.

Even at ground level, the extraordinary lobby becomes the focal point for visitors and residents alike, with glass walls, muted limestone flooring, and a dramatically illuminated glass sculpture which is suspended from the soaring ceiling.

With features and amenities unlike any other, and an extraordinary location with forever protected views, Exhibit is a stunning work of art to add to our incredible city skyline.
