Chaz's form features diagonals that are 45° from Charles Street's east-west length. The angles are an hommage to the Macy Dubois-designed building which Chaz is replacing, while at the same time they provide views in multiple directions from many of the tower's units. Second to those angled façades, the building's most prominent feature will be its Chaz Club, perched 36 and 37 storeys in the air, and providing amazing views of the city's core.
