The entry to this residential plaza, roughly 70 feet east of Second Avenue on the south side of East 65th Street, doubles as the entryway to the residential high-rise, eliminating the question whether building residents and members of the public will see each other and coexist. The central corridor is defined by a minimalist purple column-beam structure bearing a glass canopy. Flanking the corridor are angled brick ledges perfectly sized and positioned for sitting.

Where the canopy doglegs to the front door, the remainder of residential plaza extends forward. Immediately ahead is a delicate waterfall and a rounded shallow pool decorated with a naturalistic abstract stone sculpture and surrounded by a metal rail. Further south is a small area bordered to the east and south by a skillful melange of trees, shrubs, and groundcover, limned with more zigzags of sittable brick ledges. A wall of translucent glass bricks in purple frame marks the rear.
