The James is phase one of the overall Streetlights Residential development known as The Azalea. Traditionally designed around an entry courtyard and motor entrance, the building is eight stories of brick and cast stone with a mix of residential types from townhouses and large corner units to studio and one bedrooms. The James has 344 units with luxury amenities, including a full-service resident-only bar, a fully-outfitted supper kitchen and dining room, and a state-of-the-art media and communal living room. The building is anchored around a split-level landscaped courtyard that combines brick walks, outdoor cooking, and a resort-style pool.
