A neighborhood connection
Amazon Frontier is a half-block development responsive to its neighborhood. Maximizing the smaller site, the bulk of the massing sits as a tower on the southern end, pressed against the alley and the towers of the original Rufus 2.0 development. Along Seventh Avenue, the building modulates in response to the transparent and connecting stair, activating the façade as it runs from the ground to the roof. And nestling to the north is a much smaller and more playful annex - a box of colored and patterned glass, fitting for the colorful Bell Street Park.
