If you're into architecture, the brilliant minds at Giannone Petricone Architects have created something fresh, something new, something so cool that it'll look as great in 50 years as it does today.

Fritted glass, punctuated by colourful vertical highlights and an arrangement of geometric balconies. A six storey podium that lends scale and context to the bustling street scene on the Riff, and houses the lobby off 6th Ave. Inside, perch and people watch across from the sculptural fireplace, or connect to the in-house WiFi and broadcast your thoughts to your social networks. Atop the tower, admire the city's skyline from the rooftop lounge and terrace.

Rising 25 storeys, Verve offers a unique balance of shops and residences, creating a vibrant environment where everything is within reach. There are 290 suites, including a selection of exclusive live/work units. From cozy one-bedrooms, to spacious penthouses, find what you love at Verve.
