Inside The Grand Tier, its public spaces are decorated by acclaimed American designer John Saladino.

Designed by Costas Kondylis, it has 232 rental apartments and its tower is setback on a low-rise base that maintains the streetwall. Its clean, simple lines and light color make it standout from its nearby residential towers that are darker and have more complex massing.

The building was completed in 2005. It has a 24-hour doorman, a concierge, an attended service entrance with package room and delivery escort, a separate service elevator, an air-conditioned laundry facility, a fitness center with a 50-foot pool of limestone and mosaic inlay, a residents' lounge with kitchen, a landscaped terrace and a children's playground.

It also has a garage, a Culligan water filtration system and valet and maid services.
