This ambitious project is a hospitality development with retail on the Ground and lower levels.

Contrary to to the Architectural Brutalism of the surroundings with which the site connects, the project creates a human scale retail “neighborhood” which, unlike a large podium is inviting and easily accessible. There is a shared connection and functional relationship between the project and the neighbouring hotel.

Besides the ample public space, common outdoor and indoor facilities are provided for the residents of the tower. Apartments all have large windows and independent balconies, natural light, and views over the city and the seafront.

The building marks its unique identity using hanging gardens and transparency. It will be a great destination to live in as well as visit.
