Serving as a gateway to the Laketown District of north Kenner, the project's main feature is a new sign. Constructed of Cor-ten weathering steel and stainless steel, the internally lit linear sign serves as a landmark to the district.

The modern architecture of the building features a large glass wall that overlooks a green space.

Cypress trees, azaleas, palmettos, grasses and irises are arraigned in large masses around a dry bed of Mexican beach pebble.
