Gross Floor Area: 320,000 sq.m
This mixed-use development features an iconic 370 metre-high, 88-storey tower with a 350-room five star luxury hotel, hotel apartments, and offices. A focal point of the tower is its transparent sky garden atriums levels facing the adjacent city park and river beyond. A 72-storey, 320 unit residential tower balances the composition.
The podium features 8 levels of luxury retail, office and conference centre functions both with prominent frontage along the main streets and to the interior courtyard. The dynamic form of the podium invites people into a new shopping experience. The green roof provides amenity space for residents and hotel guests, as well as both reducing roof temperatures and solar heat gain by circulating air around the building and collecting rain water for irrigation purposes.
