A young 28-year-old Wright designed this complex comprising 46 rent-controlled dwellings where he aimed to improve the living conditions of the lower classes. The complex is laid out around a semi-public courtyard which has access through large arches and in which the front doors to the ground floor dwellings are located. An open deck, with entrances at different points, runs along the top floor. He avoids covered communal spaces. The complex was partially demolished in 1974. Kenneth Frampton saw it as a predecessor of the elevated street proposed by Brinkman in the Spangen complex.
