Access to light and air are necessary considerations when designing with the goal of a porous building. The profile of the building at its base is varied to balance ground-floor programming and engaging outdoor spaces. A small retail court allows for light, air, and brings open space into the site. At the South, the lobby and residential uses are set back from the lot line to let light and air cross through to the alley and support a small residential terrace. Circulation paths also connect to the “porous building” ideal. There are multiple ways for pedestrians, bikes, and vehicles to navigate the site and building from the street and alley.
