Derived from the long narrow site, the rectilinear slab towers are formed into a dynamic composition of slim, interlocking planes, slanted at varying angles to create a sense of movement and play.  The cores and floor zones are arranged to maximize harbor views.  The broad south elevations combined with the intersecting volumes provide valuable office space and corner units maximizing harbor exposure at the upper levels.

The car parking and loading has been restricted to the basement and a podium structure at the base of tower 2. This allows the remainder of the site to be opened up to form a landscape plaza at grade, a unique feature for office developments in this area.

Technical, environmental, or social advancements:
The building facade consists of fully unitized aluminum framed curtain wall system. The floor to ceiling glazing utilizes the latest glazing technology.  Clear double glazed units incorporating performance solar coatings allow maximum light transmission while reducing thermal transmission through the façade.

The vertical transportation has been carefully analyzed in order to maximize lifting capacity whilst maintaining floor plate efficiencies.  Each tower is divided into 3 lift zones and high-speed lifts are provided.  Two car park lifts are provided in each tower providing direct access to the main lift lobbies from the car park levels.
