The project is due for completion in 2019 and will boast 413 residential apartments in a 44-storey tower, a state-of-the-art cultural, exhibition/conference space, an entertainment hub and the city's largest ballroom space.
The 2,500m² entertainment facility will be managed by Dockside and contribute an estimated $25M to the local economy annually.
