20 Floors

200,000 SF Office

28 Condominiums

1,048 Structured parking spaces

The building’s taut glass curtain wall, recessed balconies, and dramatic rounded corner balance modern form and materials with the neighboring historic St. John’s Cathedral.

Cathedral Place’s mixed-use program includes 200,000 square feet of office space, 28 residential condominiums, 1,045-car parking garage, 17,000 square feet of ground floor retail, and 7,500 square feet of lobby areas for various uses. To maximize floor plates and take advantage of the surrounding city views, the office component occupies the top eight floors and lies above the garage. The residential areas are located on floors 2-10. The single-loaded vertical corridor of the residential floors conceals the garage from the park, and provides park views to the residential units. The building is sensitive to its prominent location in the city. All four sides are designed to create a dignified and modern presence in its larger urban context, which is simultaneously being reflected on street level.
