Among the modern, high-end features were an elevator, swimming pool, fallout shelter, private balconies, private parking, and laundry facilities. The complex included 20 one-bedroom units and a pair of two bedroom penthouses.

The apartment building is still there, though at some point in the past 63 years it was renamed. It's now the Peri Apartments.
