From the document, the following doesn't say what the materials are, for the most part:
"3.4 CHARACTER AND MATERIALS
A mix of natural materials in warm and muted tones are proposed for the Project. Each elevation has a distinct materiality responding to the interior programmatic functions and external contextual cues. At the active corner of Bennington and Palermo Streets, the ground level consists of a high percentage of vision glass which optimizes views as it extends to the underside of a wood soffit. The wood softens the transition from retail and amenity to residential floors above. At this highly visible corner, the Proponent selected a fine grain terracotta which will also reference the scale and color of the residential neighborhood. Larger windows with subtle black frames will give the Project’s residents sweeping views of the surrounding neighborhood and the marsh.
The Bennington Street building elevations highlighted in the previous section will be a neutral, white siding to create a high contrast surface for shadows throughout the day. The Project Architect simulated many material types and colors along this elevation, and eventually considered a simple white the ideal backdrop for this dynamic façade.
Along the elevations facing the Belle Isle Marsh, careful consideration of the elevational change from Palermo Street to Austin Avenue is taken by the Project to promote accessible community connectivity to the marsh. The transition from retail to amenity, and the use of a double height space facing the marsh, promotes additional views and allows stepping in the façade. While this corner at Palermo Street and Austin Avenue continues to be highly transparent, the resident amenity space at grade gradually transitions to more of a solid base.
The above residential floors are a mix of white, gray and wood tone siding to assist in scaling down the mass of the buildings. Private balconies scattered throughout these elevations provide added depth to the façade and opportunity for residents to enjoy a peaceful outdoor moment overlooking the marsh."
