Calligraphy Urban Residences

Designed as part of the Central Park Village Masterplan that transformed twenty acres of what was a hospital site into a vibrant, sustainable, mixed-use village, Calligraphy Urban Residences offers 206 luxury apartments and an expansive suite of amenities.  Located adjacent to a new, one-acre public park, the apartments wrap around a parking structure shared by a medical office building. The four-story complex maintains a vertical profile with a highly articulated facade that reduces the sense of scale. The play of forms and colors—projections and recessions, varied fenestration, bright reds and subtle grays—create a syncopation that brings energy and interest to the building facades.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom units are light-filled with high ceilings and views that offer a sense of connection to the outdoors and the larger community. The well-planned layouts offer ample storage with walk-in closets, pantries and linen closets. Each unit also has its own private patio or balcony.

The sense of connection is reinforced in the ground plan. Pedestrian pathways provide easy passage between the residences and destinations across the community including the pool and cabanas, landscaped courtyards, clubhouse, fitness center and the park. Vehicular connections are equally well planned with easy access from Central Avenue to the central parking structure, with reserved parking for residents.
