In the center of the Cherokee Triangle neighborhood (and completed in 1980), 1400 Willow embodies its history through its traditional architecture of brick and stone. The lobby features historic details of wood molding and a commissioned mural of the neighborhood at the turn of the century.

Willow and Cherokee Parks are Olmsted parks which provide special opportunities for 1400 Willow residents, their neighbors and visitors. Willow Park features a gazebo where there are Sunday evening concerts from Memorial Day through Labor Day. ( It also offers a "tot lot" playground area which is well used by neighbors and visitors.) Opened in 1890, Cherokee Park is a 409 acre park which has a 9 hole golf course, biking lanes and trails, running and walking lanes, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball diamonds, playground and picnic areas, a lake where fishing is allowed, and a well used "dog park."
