“This development has been a true labor of love for all of us at Lionheart Capital," said its CEO, Ophir Sternberg, at the grand opening. "We have taken the time to curate, not only a luxury residential building, but an engaging sanctuary and community for our residents, focusing on everything from the smallest design details to the largest, first-ever amenities. It was our intention to craft a product that was intensely thoughtful, how we each would want things actualized within our own homes. The end result took time to get just right but turned out even better than I, or anyone, ever anticipated.”
