As the second half of Phase 1 of the Alexandra Park Revitalization project, SQ2 is the sister building to SQ. Many similar ideas were implemented here but whereas on SQ, each projecting box belonged to one unit, on SQ2 the projections were grouped together to create fewer, larger projections. The building is at the south end of a new linear park and this bolder expression of the facade is intended to be read from a further distance away than the boxes on SQ.
