The Terraces on France is an extraordinary new project that brings LEED-certified living to the vibrant 50th & France neighborhood. Designed by architect Julie Snow, FAIA, The Terraces on France is a unique concept that marries the liveliness and convenience of urban life with the beauty and refuge provided by the prototypical backyard.
The Terraces is not your standard boxy condo. This striking structure was created by playfully carving out areas for light and life, giving every resident their own flowing indoor/outdoor spaces to relax, gather and entertain. Animated by seasonal texture and color, our terraces give you the benefits of a patio, deck, garden and yard without all the upkeep.
The Terraces on France was designed to minimize environmental impacts, maximize green features and use premium materials to create a lasting structure that will endure for generations to come. Native and climate-appropriate plantings that are resilient, water-efficient, and pollinator-friendly will be sustained by high-efficiency LEED-certified irrigation systems, providing a natural landscape that shifts with the seasons.
Designed for your lifestyle
The Terraces opens up new possibilities for enjoying the seasons and gathering with family and friends. In addition to your own generous outdoor space, the shared rooftop terrace includes beautiful gardens, an outdoor kitchen, firepit, lounge areas, and even a dog run—all with 360 degree views.
All units have tall floor-to-ceiling windows that have been carefully designed to control glare and maximize natural light. A dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) delivers clean, filtered air to all interiors. The Terraces’ secure, climate-controlled parking garage incorporates electric car charging stations, as well as bike parking and fix-it station for residents.
The Terraces is a celebration of light and form, with spaces that are both practical and exquisitely beautiful. Materials have been chosen for their integrity and aesthetic impact, such as zinc, which has a rich, subtle patina that will age beautifully. You can customize your own floor plans and interiors to create the home of your dreams.
