A 36-storey commercial building in Business bay developed by Sheth Estate International Limited and designed by WS Atkins & Partners.
The tower comprises two identical double curved pixelated shells which are rotated and cantilevered over a four-storey podium, underneath which are three levels of basement designed to facilitate underground parking for 920 cars.
The 170-metre tower is elevated above a four-storey perforated podium which floats over a double height arcade, and houses retail and commercial space totalling 82,000 sq m.
The distinctive ovoid shape creates areas of negative pressure that draw air through the building and reduce the dependence upon mechanical ventilation for the underground car park in particular.
The rear elevation is a continuous vertical curve punctuated by balconies while the front elevation is made up of seven zones of rotated glass. This includes naturally ventilated spaces and integrated solar energy and shading films in the glass façade.
Construction began in 2007 and was completed in 2015.
Amenities include a landscaped garden, swimming pool, state-of-the-art clubhouse and a multi-cuisine restaurant and cafe.
